Here鈥檚 a few pics of my 85 CB650SC Nighthawk. I bought it non-running and designed and built it in my garage. Lots of custom designed and 3D printed parts, completely new electronics and ignition setup, GSXR750 front end. It鈥檚 not super fast, but it handles really well, super nimble and a great canyon bike.

Love two wheels but will be giving it up and sticking to 4 with the GRC鈥etter chance of survival should things go south View attachment 1593
That's sad to hear but im pretty much in the same boat. As much as I love riding and my bike, where I live just isn't conducive to owning one. I get to ride maybe 3-4 months out of the year, the rest of the time it's either too cold or too rainy.

Just wondering if anyone else on here rides?
Kawasaki released the ZX-25R in Indonesia in 2020, a small displacement 250 inline 4 cylinder that revs to an astronomical 17,000+ rpm.
Unfortunately, it wasn't sold in North America, however they might be selling another high revving inline 4 called the ZX-4R.
I've never owned a sport bike before just a cruiser and a dualsport, so I don't want to buy a big 1,000 sport bike and it be my last.
Personally, I'd rather ride a slow bike fast, than a fast bike slow.
The 250 sounds amazing, like the high revving F1 cars of the past.

I'm doing my research on my first bike now. Been considering it for years, but I'm going to go take my MSF in a week and a half.

Will most likely end up with a KTM 390 Duke. A Kawasaki Z400 is also a contender. I'm really liking what I can find of naked bikes. A nice compromise between the comfort of a cruiser and the fun of a sports bike.

Stay away from KTM 390.
