Troll attack ?
Dear oh dear....... flydnb or whatever you call yourself, read back what you have written in your latest commentary and i think you will find YOU sound quite embittered, harsh and a little on the tyrannical side.
I never mentioned anything about hating kids drooling over these bikes, merely being tongue in cheek.
And where does it state in the literature for these two bikes that anyone over the age of 30-40 shouldn't ride them as they're aimed at the younger audience?
I haven't read one report where it states these bikes were produced for a certain niche in the market ?
If you don't care for my sentiments toward these two machines, then skip on by, without critics, mistakes would go unhindered. The SPD TRIP, is again one's own personal taste, fair do's.
Snev....... I didn't say the MT-09 was ' thrown together', i said the 07 looked like it had been thrown together to complete the numbers. Do get it right.
Besides, this is getting just a little bit out of hand wouldn't you say, for what is after all a forum for people to air their own particular views without being subjected to anger and abuse. I'm sure there are bikes, etc you in particular are not too keen on and have aired your own unfavourable opinions?
Both bikes are not attractive to me, i have made my comment, end of, but that's what we call a difference of opinion and why we see so many different bikes on the roads.
