depends on your future. you got a girlfriend you serious with or no? cause if you have a serious girl go for the Turbo. if your single go for the bike. i love pulling up to a bike and revving my engine. i know i will never win but i just love to see them jump the line like no tomorrow.

Turbo.. bike is good but higher risk, cost of payments and insurance, gear, and etc.

Or.. Supercharger, header and what ever else you don't have, SC because it's lower end power (makes up for what our cars lack) and more reliable than Turbo.

I was in the same position, and i decided to go with a bike, because the celica with a Turbo still wont be as fast as a bike.

I don't think the purpose of the Turbo is to be faster than a bike.. whomever incorperated that into the thread wasn't thinking straight because it's apples and oranges. A bike is faster than most every car.. complete no brainer.

depends on wich bike smile I got a Fireblade and did ride a Ducati (my dad's) and a RSV Mille from Aprilia (my own) before.. I drove all kinds but those are the ones I owned.. if you're gonna get a bike make sure you get a nice one otherwise it's just a waste of money but hey I dunno how the insurance is overthere.. and the roads.. wich I personally think is really important smile

I'd get a bike, but either way i cant get one yet!! I will get one the minute i turn 25, i have the money for one already saved up, but my wife says that the insurance will be too high, so i cant get it until im 25 when my premium wont be as high because of my age. But i already know which one im gonna get the minute i can, Hybusa 1300!!

Don't get the busa...it may be fast, but it can't handle for shit. It's too long, and heavy, it's only good for straight lines. I would rather see you pick up a GSXR 1000, b/c it's fast, probably faster than you would ever need, plus it handles 1000 times better than the 'busa.

bike!! But if its your first bike, and you buy any of the ones listed, you'll probably be R.I.P. in no time. Get a nice starter bike, and learn to ride first. GSXR's, busa's, R1's, yzf's are all designed for EXPERIENCED riders. Get a used starter bike, and trade up next year! My .02 BTW, I have a naked streetfighter, Honda 599--very fast, but not as fast as the ones just listed and it will still do 0-60 in 3.2 and run the quarter in 11 secs.
