I have no need for such a bike but that doesn't mean I wouldn't enjoy having it.

Exactly! I always enjoyed the torque in the midrange of even my ZX9R, I can only imagine how they feel now. =) Hopefully soon, I won't have to, lol...The CB900F is a fun, nostalgic bike, and I'd never get rid of it, but I'm definitely looking forward to getting a new one and tinkering on it. =)

I enjoy going back and forth between the 748 and the 6R...each has a different way of delivering the fun. With the literbike I'm sure there would still be good times but it's fun to try and work the bike through the gears and improve progression on the road. Vs. sitting in 3rd and winding the throttle in and out.

You can try my CB, you get 900cc's, and you still get to row the gearbox. In addition, you get floaty suspension that bounces a few times before it settles in to a curve as the tires squirm under it, and 600 lbs of machine to guide around parking lots, lol...it has definitely given me a new perspective on today's bikes =)
