not

at all, everyone ive sold on ive missed it more or less everyday, the feeling wears off once you and the new un get into the groove, dont envy you buying a ducati 748 they need meticulous maintaining to keep them sharp, and the electrics can play up quite a bit if its an older model.

I don't mind

The maintenance, it's why i got the bike.

 I think i was in love with the 125... cried when it was trucked away.

The Ducati... just a good mutual friendship, it keeps me happy, I keep it happy. But nothing more.

Still missing my Harley

but a few weeks on I have to admit that the big smiles are coming back. The new bike's very different but we're becoming quite playful together. I could learn to love it eventually.

There's nothing wrong with missing your old bike.

Completely understandable to miss ur old bike! I seem to be missing my cbr400-thankfully she's awaiting her mot and service then i can get her out again and test the mod's i've had done :-) 


Shame i cant seem to sell the ER5 to fund all of the other bits i need to do tho!

You should have kept the yzf 125 ! and had two bikes, unless you needed the trade in value of course.

I ride an xjr 1300 but also have a little cbr125 in the stable, I have great fun riding both as they offer totally different riding experiences. Its just having the time and oppurtunity thats my problem.
