MT07 sold out....now what

So I took a fellow forums members advise and decided to go for a mt07 as my first 'big bike'. I went down to my nearest yamaha dealer today to only find out there's a waiting list until around November. Does anyone have any alternative bikes I should consider or do you think it's best I wait until the end of the year?

I want ...

600 vs 1000 sportsbike for commute

Hi all!I am looking to buy a new sportsbike and am trying to weigh up the financial benefits of running a 600cc vs 1000cc.I do not own a car and use my bike all year round including my 30+mile daily commute, and at least one night a week a ride out.I am currently running a GSXR 1000 K4 and have nothing but praise for it, about as practical as a superbike can be in my view.Looking around I can't really see much difference in running costs between 600's and 1000's. For example, tax would be the same unless the bike ...

BMW R1200RT, it's only a colour after all !

Hi All,After weighing up the options, I've finally decided to make a change from my triumph speed triple and move towards a touring bike. Ive tried a few and have settled on the BMW R1200RT but I'm having a problem sourcing one with the right spec, age, miles and price.After some searching Ive found exactly what i want, but not the colour I was after. I was looking for blue and its sand biege. I cant make my mind up whether to bite the bullet and buy it or hold off and keep looking.It's not the worst colour in the world, but ...

what does 6k get ya...

Ok, if you had %XA36-6.5k to spend on a sportsbike what would it be?  Changing the ZX10R (C2H) in for something else, looking at the options of buying used.

How much?

Can anyone suggest where I can find out how much an older bike is worth? I'm looking at a 1989 Kawasaki ZL1000 online but I'm struggling to find a suggested price range. Thanks
