How many bikers on here?

Hey, I haven't had a bike (motorcycle) for 8 years now. But I plan on riding again next summer.

Just wondering, how many people ride here?

Any suggestions on a good bike? I'm looking at getting a Ducati as that's what I used to dream of getting. But I'm not familiar with the current lineup....I remember the 748 and 996 were pretty sweet.

I had a NSR250 (in HK) CBR600F4, R6 and R1 between 1998-2003....I had my bike license before my car license.

Any BMW sport bikes worth looking into?

Welcome back and there are lots of bikers and ex bikers on this board. I have an 1198 and a Monster and both are awesome but have different riding styles and that is up to you and the type of guys you will be riding and hanging out with. The 848 is a great sportsbike and the Monster lineup is wide with many engine choices. Do some demos in the spring and have fun. The BMW 1000 is currently king in the hp department and definitely worth looking at although the front end is hideous.

I miss my 600RR. I got out of it because I was getting to aggressive for my own good. Be sure to post pics when you make a decision. I'm sure whatever you move on will be fantastic.

I got my M2 in the summer. I'll be purchasing my first bike in the spring. Probably a ninja 250r to start on, then I'll upgrade to a used 600 later on.

848 looks pretty sweet. I took my friends 748 on the track a while back and I really liked it...so I guess I can be on the hunt for a 848/1098

just start with a 600cc, you will want to upgrade from a 250cc 4 stroke after a day of riding it.

I have an 08 Ducati 848 an absolutely love it. I can say that after swapping bikes out every 2 years, I do not believe this bad boy is going anywhere. Absolutely love it. I also just picked up an 07 Kawi ZX6R for the track a couple months ago. Can't wait for next season!

Looking to get into bikes this coming summer, also looking at some ducati's, but not sure if I'll be able to pull through due to time constraints.

I applaud you guys/gals for having the balls to ride a bike with so many fucking idiots (horrible drivers) on the road today.

I honestly couldn't do it for this very reason.
