I get what your saying but trust me man.. I'm not new to liter bikes. Just new to Honda haha. I have had a 08 ZX-10R, a 07 Gixxer 1000, and a 11 Gixxer 1000, i also had an 06 R6, 11 Harley streetglide, 11 Honda Fury lol.
I am also the type of guy to research before my purchase and mods is a part of my research. Wife says i have OCD when it comes to my bikes but i call it passion. During my looking at bikes and mods i like to figure out the best bang for buck. I can get a better price on the honda, but i also like to see how much it might cost me to get the bike how i want it a lil bit before hand.
Also it seems my sarcasm goes unnoticed around here haha. Trust me i can cruise just fine on any of big japs, i dont really do meet ups but i do like to know how much power im rocking just in case someone wants to test me hahaha ( again thats a joke ).
The money is there for any bike i choose, even the Duck 1199 Panigale but them things feel horrid in the cockpit. Id rather spend $10,000 on the honda and a mother couple grand getting her to run how i like.
