Hi guys, sorry to jump on your site...
I've been riding my 696 Monster and its a solid, forgiving ride. Nothing scary about it at all. But with my mods, front sprocket, CF termis, comp. werkes rear cut, CF goodies on body and CRG bar ends its a real nice package and will probably keep it for good as it'll probably be one of those classics in 20 years time.
Anyways, what advice would you have if i was to buy a superbike ??
I'm not totally famailar with the superbike family. so 998,999, 1098, 1198 ?
What would you buy, money no real problem
It would be purley weekend bike, not cruiser etc...
My friend has a 998S FE, shit thats a nice bike...
He's letting my ride that soon, I'll post for you....
Any thoughts.
Thanks in advance...

If you want something rare, then get an R of some kind (999R, 1098R, 999Xerox, 999Fila), or, like you said, you friend has a 998FE. Do you want it to ride the piss out of? Do you care about maintenance cost? Or do you want something that you can just cruise with that will last a long time and maintenance will be a little better (848, 1098)?

Would like something just to cruise and will last a long time.
maintainence not an issue.
Were the 998 better than the 999 >

If you are not worried about maintenance then get whichever one appeals to you the most. Each evolution of bike is better performance wise than the previous. And each model set up properly will have its argument whether it feels better than another, but for what you want to do, just go with whatever appeals.
