new bike choice... help ??

Hi all....


Its that of year when Im looking for a new bike ( well slightly 2nd hand... as I cant justify a new one ).

Problem is, all winter I thought I knew what I wanted.. a Speed Triple. But now Im seriously looking, I cant make my mind up... GSXR 1000, R1, Blade, Tuono ???.. 

Do I stick to my guns and get a Speed Triple, or go with my feelings and by another sportsbike ?...

In my opinion it's difficult changing from a sports bike to a sportsbike say from a GSXR to A Fireblade unless you go for something like a Ducati.

The Trumpet Speed Triple does have character it's something different, I certainly considered one but just didn't tick all my boxes.

Good choice Goldenboy, lets hope we get some good weather so you can enjoy it to the full.:smile

Thank you all

I absolutely love it... It sounds sweet as hell with those Arrow cans on... It's all cleaned and wrapped up... Until tonight, when after dinner, I'll probably unwrap it... Sit on it, clean it again and wrap it back up....


Is anyone meeting up this year ?.. Either bike meets, BSB, or even MCN Live at Skegness ?
