this sexy little F4 came to spend the night with my!!!

Highly moded F4 1k friend went out of town, so naturally i asked for the keys of this hot mofo , now coming from 2 of the worlds fastest sports bikes : the 1000rr and 06'1k gixxer, im pretty familiar with the hunch down, all business, sexiness of superbikes. But i was surprised with the extremely uncomfortable riding position, the low bars, hard/high seat, hands get crushed by the fairings when turning lock to lock, joke of a did not look like an enjoyable experience even before i push the start button.

Then i pull out to the city streets, it is very frightening riding a bike more expensive than most cars on the road (U.S$60K+ locally to duplicate this baby). Im too tired to list the mods on the bike, but i will say its pretty much everything NICE. Anyway, i crap around at insanely low speeds dodging cagers and other mini-scooters that have no idea my sh!t is 10 times the cost of their sh!t. After about 5miles, i finally get to the bottom of my favorite mountain, i start to open it a little, vibrations galore! If this thing was a gixxer i already head bike to the shop to check for problems. Almost everything on the bike is vibrating and not in a good way. Keep in mind, this bike is pretty much brand new with less than 2k miles on it. And shop owner assured me the little vibrations are normal.

Ok, i speed up more, and things get better, the faster i go, the better i feel about the bike, and i didnt even have to swing my knee out for corners, i just have to lean into them. Of course im not running my normal gixxer pace or even my usual 910 speed, it is someone else's bike after all. But the faster i go, the more comfortable the bike gets, i concluded to a "ghetto-fabulous-reckless-hooligan-fuxk u all" driving style which suited the bike best. Brakes with the top shelf brembos are the BEST of course, power is pretty good too and the moto corse TI exhaust is nice but i wish it was louder. Wind buffeting on straights even with the moded taller screen is noticeable and i have never been so close to the gas tank before this.
Anyway since this is an MV forum and i am an MV owner now, i wont compare this gem with anything else on the market, but i will say that performance-wise on the street, you have to be crazy to choose this thing over a jap liter bike. But if u have the means, then u HAVE to choose this F4 over anything else. I havnt seen the 1098 in person yet, but sitting still, the F4 overkills everybody else in the looks and details department. IT IS the sexiest bike i've ever seen!!!! PERIOD!! Even riding it makes me feel much better about myself knowing this sh!t costs U.S$60k and everyone else on the road just stare at you as long as their sight permits. Other biker's d!ck instantly shrink when they see u coming, u'll feel like giving everybody the finger when u ride around in this thing, because it is TEH ultimate "fuxk u ride!!!" I feel like Brad pitt or Tom Cruise in this thing!! Guys instantly becoming insecure when they see u and chicks start to scream your name..............., ok, ok, im getting full of myself here, but u get the point.

Notice i didnt mention the 910 here, because it is 2 really different rides. Only the engine surges and vibrations are familiar, otherwise u will never know from riding that these are cousins.

This particular F4 has been featured in magazines :

I can write a book about this F4 and the experience i have with it, but hell, im going out to ride it now~!!

Whoever details that bike does a damn fine job. Looks cleaner than new.
