    gotta be a chop. No hangars or restraints at all.

    No ... but one can only dream.

    I might sell my bike to get an older Ducati though. A friend picked up a 748 the other day ... now I'm thinking I want a Ducati 996 or something. Maybe in Dark Metallic Green like the one Trinity rode
    Oh Yeah!

    Had a yellow 748 biposto and a red 996 monoposto I bought and sold to profit. I felt my F4i was faster than the 748. The 748 cornered marginally better than the honda, but it only made a difference knee dragging. I always felt the Honda was more 'tossable' or 'flickable' side to side. The Honda stunted much easier too. The 748 had some form of abs which prevented front wheel lockup and subsequently prevented endo's or stoppies.

    I have friends who park in the living room in their apartments for the winter. Never seen this.

    between 748/996/F4i, which one did you enjoy the most (without consideration of cost)?
    Oh Yeah!

    F4i. No comparison. I still own 2 (a 2001 and a 2002)

    Definitely. Honda drastically changed the riding position with the RR. They also changed the balance slightly, therefore the experience. On a track, the RR is slightly quicker, but I ride on the street and stunt randomly. I find the F4i to suit me better all around. I wasn't alone, either. They originally made the RR to replace the F4i, but with such an outpouring, they still make it. I haven't ridden the new 1000RR yet. I really would like to. I've been considering a new bike and for the past few years have been eyeing the RC51 and moving to a twin.

    I'm not a bike person, and never will be, but the way the RC51 sounds makes me seriously reconsider.

    Part of the reason I like it. That and the ability to retune the fuel map, run rich and spit dual flames out of high mounted Akropovic pipes kinda does it for me.

    I didn't store my bike. Left it in the parking lot all winter long. I rode it at least once every two weeks.
    On the other hand it was a pretty weak winter.

    Next winter I'm seriously considering moving the bike into my apartment.
