word. k6 was the best.

i do not regret selling mine. i think the real reason i held on to it the last couple of years was because i just loved looking at it in the garage.

I too have owned more motorcycles than Corvettes, all of them as fast or faster.

Started off with a '92 CBR600F2, then a '94 CBR600F2, on to a '95 CBR900RR, then a '98 GSXR750R, then a 2001 GSXR1000R, and in parallel a 2005 CB919F (street fighter).

Road raced for about 12 years, then instructed for 3.. Sold the street bike, race bike hasn't been started in a few years..

Riding on the streets in metro ATL is just short of a death wish, some of the worst drivers (I've lived in quite a few different states).

i do miss track riding, and I do miss blasting through and over the Seirra Nevada mountains at 150 mph.

Was seriously thinking about selling a few things and picking up a 2018 or 2019 GSXR1000R..
We had a lot of the same bikes, started on the dirt for years then my first street bike was a red and white 92 F2 as well. 94& 96 CBR900, 98 GSXR750, 2002 GSXr750, 2003 R1, still have a 2006 CBR1000 but haven’t ridin it in a couple years and still have my cruiser for the street:

For the above...my son and I really enjoy the track. He uses a KTM 690 Enduro R on the street and track.
We use a BMW S1000R and RR (track only, now) on the street and track.
And the V4 Speciale has only been on the street.
I low sided twice this season. My air bag suit saved me both times; only had a bruised right hand from the first fall. Highly recommend an air bag!!!
But as others have noted with age, at 57 I might say “been there, done that” soon.
Lots of fun, though!!!

Wow, that's quite a collection of bikes. Thanks for all the responses. Looks like there are quite a few Corvette guys who are also passionate about motorcycles. To me, they kind of go hand in hand - if you like performance cars, you will probably like performance bikes, or cruisers.

Been riding since I was old enough to throw my leg over a Yamaha YZ80 around '79.

Weird. I had a 92 F2 (red/white), 94 F2 (purple/red/black) and 95 900RR (white/purple/yellow). I had a few more 750s and 1000s after that, but am now on a 15 FZ-09.

My first "street' bike was a '92 F2 as well. Amazing little bike for it's displacement. Moved on to a 900RR a few years later, but didn't have it for long...got married.lol

IMHO, the F2/F3 was one of the all-time best...especially considering when it was introduced. Quick, comfortable, forgiving and excellent build quality. I'm always on the lookout for a nice one, but most are either totally ragged out, or their owners want way too much money for them.

Found this limited 30th anniversary edition ZX14R in NJ with only 300 miles on the odometer last year....had to have it (only 300 of them made and each bike numbered).

This bike pays homage to the 1985 Ninja 900 which was really the first "Superbike" ever built by any manufacturer (first with four valves per cylinder, liquid cooling, full fairings etc.)

I barely have time to ride it but it looks like its going 100 MPH just sitting in my shop....LOL

Unlike with our Z06s you have good hint as to the age group a person belongs to by the motorcycle they ride...
