Doh

In that case, I'll go for something totally impractical...

Other Left-field

The pre-Diavel / VRod Custom-Sprots crossover bike, the Yamaha XV1700 Warrior

Or one of those Kawasaki W800 Flat-trackers that have their own one make race series in Switzerland

When my Hayabusa had to go

a few year back [ok strictly speaking NOT a sports bike but damn quick anyway] I bought a 1200 Bandit. Loved it to bits but then I fancied a BMW 1150GS and that was magic but in the end that also had to go [too darn heavy] and now I ride a Bonneville and I'm chuffed to bits with the little bugger :winkie: it aint fast but boy is it loud :lol: and it's a whole load of fun. Every time I go out on it I feel like I'm 18 all over again. At almost 63 I'm sorry to say the Triumph will prolly be my last bike but I'll hang onto it even when I can no longer ride and just go in my garage and polish it, maybe sit on it and dream of the days when I could ride it and all the other bikes I've owned down the years since that far off day when I turned 16.

Never...

...owned a sportsbike :sleep:


I've ridden a ZXR750, R6 & CBR600R and didn't get on with them. The arse up, bum down riding position has never appealed to me but then I'd never pretend I've even tried to get my knee down. Maybe I'm old before my time but a VN900 Custom or W800 for fine weather riding or something like a K1300S or similar sports tourer for long, er tours.

Having said that I was really tempted to go for the NC700X the other day as an all-year commuter. I pack in 12k a year with a lot of motorway riding so something cheap, comfortable, frugal on the juice and capable at long motorway stints is what I go for.

For me the question should be "if I could ONLY ride a sports bike for the rest of my life what would it be"? Any suggestions?
:wink:
