I ask this because of the recent influence of reading manga.. (Mars and Silver Dragon's Mission Trance (http://www.morbid-prince.com/die.htm) ) , and I really want to give my try at drawing racing motorcycles and sports cars. For the bikes, I'm particularly interested in the Japanese ones, the sporty ones... if only I knew what they were called. If someone could at least tell me some welll known types/brands/names, maybe I could go to the local bookstore and get a book or two to help me out.

They're called sportbikes, usually listed under supersport on the official honda/yamaha/suzuki webpages. Or rice rockets or crotch rockets. :)

2 of the most popular bikes these days:
Honda f4i

Yamaha R6

Here are some photo galleries you might like to use as reference. I dunno what you're looking for but there are pics of track days and stuff. I haven't looked too closely so if you're looking for something specific and don't find it, lemme know.

Thank you so much!! ::glomp:: I was going on the search engines, and I didn't know what to type in, and I couldn't get pull up what I wanted to find... so this helps a great deal. ^_^
