Staff Blog: Seriously versatile

Times are changing. A once bland and boring middle-weight class has morphed into one of the most exciting and competitive bike genres today, breeding a new wave of superior machinery.

Not quite right

My new car costing £21000.00   is fine except for the seat, which is uncomfortable, but new  after market seats should sort that problem out.   The engine has  a flat spot at 91.5 mph  but I will fit a refined chip in the ecu and get the old laptop out to re-programme the fuel injection.

The windscreen reflects glare into my eyes, but there are plenty of after market kits which will sort this out.

Yes this is a wind up . no one would put up with sh""" with a new car.  But MCN  expect bikers to take a new bike and spend thousands on putting it right.  Thats why the MCN is full of adverts for putting putting right crap bikes.

Aching neck muscles, numb bum and rubbish mirrors yet it's a pleasure to ride and would make an ideal commuter?

Who are you trying to kid.

This is yet another machine for occasional weekend poseurs.
