    CBR900rr is on there twice, the list is correct.

    92 was my first bike.

    1998 should be 5th gen VFR, but I can’t really quarrel with the R1 as the true sport bike of the year, nice list that brought back some memories.

    I remember the long 7 month wait I had from the time I ordered my 1998 R1, until the time it came in. By far I put the most miles on that bike per season, than any other to date.. and met some lifelong friends while out on rides on it.

    Then came the OW-02

    I saw to OW-02 on a Big Dave Sportriders.net ride. It was all that and a bag of chips, or if you were a fan on In Living Color, 2 snaps and a wave. Pretty, pretty, and great bike.

    Love the 900RR and I’d love to have one now still.

    The Ducati 916. Power looks and handling in the best looking and most exotic bike on the list.

    I'm guessing you met Mark at some point then?
