If your refering to my superhawk never-ending project.. Then I'v got a pair of yoshimira pipes to shortin and try out, RC51 front brakes, different lower plastic, BMC air filter, and cam chain tensioners planned for the winter so far... In the future I want to add a Flow-Commander(carb adjuster), better seat, and change final gear ratio..

If your refering to the next bike.. Maybe a supermoto bike, or an I4 streetfighter style bike would be nice..

Ever think of a CBR600RR?
I have my eyes on a few, but only ridden a couple miles on one.
I chose that because they are a bit lighter and more nimble, I don't really need all that much power being 130lbs soaking wet.

The modern 600's are nice, and faster in the 1/4 mile than my superhawk... But the superhawk has a V-twin engine, so you have power accross the entire RPM range, unlike I4's where you need to be in the high revs to get good power... Plus being 6'5" the Superhawk has a better(less agressive) riding possition... If this is your first real bike then I think the 600 is a good bike, as long as your not a dumb-ass and realize how fast they are ...

Have you ridden any of the bigger sport bikes? Hayabusa or a ZX14? If so, how does your Hawk compare? I'm 6'7" and I thought they both felt rather comfortable.

I have sat on the newer models, but it was a while ago and I forget how my legs felt on them... The only real problems I found with being tall on a bike is if you knees are too high for the grooves in the gas tank (like with an SV650).. Or if the pegs are too close to the seat your legs will get sore on longer rides..which is kind of the case on my superhawk after about 75 miles, but by then my ass is asleep and my gas tank running low... but the big bike will probably be more comfortable..
