@ cb13

are you still having problems with your knees?

as i have a similar problem, so this site was useful to compare my current bike with the last 3 or 4 i've had. seems twinkle has  a better riding postion than than the R1 and the Thunderace. for me anyway, not for any potential passenger.

useful site.

hmmmmm...

interesting.Seems my legs would be less bent on a Street Triple than on a CB1300 or a Speed Triple.Wierd that,thought as they were bigger bikes would have more room.Seems not,how very strange.:unsure:

Agreed.

i test rode a Street triple r when twinkle was being serviced. have to say had i rode it before i bought the Daytona, it would have been a very tough choice to make!

as for kind to the knees though, its only when you get to the adventure bikes that huge gains are going to be made i think. 68 -74 degrees isn't to my mind going to make a huge difference. consider the tiger 800. just a suggestion!

i've never fallen off a bike i've named. superstition i agree, but still a fact.

and i really can't give anything a sensible name.

Twinkle is my bike's name

my german shephard is called "parsnip"

and one of my daughters middle names is "sparticus"

what can i say?:biggrin:
