Video: Schwantz's post-sports bike picks

Growing out of extreme sports road bikes, but unwilling to give up your mojo at the same time as your GSX-R? Ex-GP world champion Kevin Schwantz is your personal shopper. The 1993 500cc world champ has more riding talent in his little finger than the rest of us put together, but now he's also, like most of us, past his best,...

I thought that was a very honest opinion laid down. At an elevated age myself I think I'd have to agree with his picks but would have to ride the Triumph some as it might rank higher for me. Can't argue with the VFR though, very sophisticated piece of kit!

Can't argue with that, tbh.

My 1st in the garage would be the Tuono V4, madder than mad mac mad on Burns night.

2nd would be the Hardly Movingson,I like to chillax sometimes.

VFR1200F

I would have to go with the VFR1200F as an “only” bike, since it has optional hard panniers (although they are very pricey) and would be the only one that would not look silly with a top case. Bikes without locking storage are toys to me – I end up taking the Dullsville if I am going somewhere.

K1300S...

...Rode one recently, isn't a patch on the VFR12, not a patch and its uglier too. (although to be fair thats like saying which of the Williams sisters is the stunner, neither is exactly a looker)

Harley-Davidson

@ Woodystock – Does it matter which H-D cruiser? Other than the V-Rod variations, touring bikes, and Sportsters, they are all pretty much the same.

I would have used the H-D XR1200R instead, as it is the one H-D that could be taken to a track day or on a canyon ride without being an embarrassment.
