Riding YET another bike to Twinkle

Seems everyone i know has changed their bike recently.

this Time Purple Aprilla man has changed to a "crossplane" crank R1.

this one was very interesting for me as its not that long since i got rid of "fluffly" the 08 R1.

The crossplane is a better Road bike and likely more usable in most situtions over the 08R1, but the Triumph is better.... MUCH better.

Had i gone ahead and bought the crossplane when i got fluffy chances are i'd still happily have it now, will stick with Twinkle though now that i've got her!

Terrible Hangover today though. so think the T35 might have been the better idea?

R1

Second heaviest, second slowest (only beating the heaviest and poorly running MV Agusta), least powerful, and near the bottom in torque.

Yes i told him all this before he bought it

and at no point did the triumph struggle to keep up with it.

and there ain't a hope in hell i'd ever get rid of the Triumph to get one!
