Time for a new bike, I don't want to spend a ton on it, too many other toys on the shopping list for this summer.
Looking for something with more displacement than the R6. After spending a few days tearing around France and Italy on a CBR1000, I'm hooked!
The budget precludes a CBR1K and most current gen litre bikes.
I was looking at 929/954's, '03ish gixxer 1K or perhaps going a different route entirely and getting something like a VTR1000 or a Tiller (if I can get beyond the aesthetics of the fattest ass in the sportbike world on the tiller.) An RC51 would fit the bill nicely but most people seem to think their used RC51 is going up in value!
One of the key factors is the ergos, the ergos can be sporty, no Goldwing required here. I was AOK doing back to back 900-1000km days on the CBR1K but the new gen R6 is too ass up, even for me.
Feedback? Plusses/minuses on the bikes I've mentioned, any bikes I should be considering?
I'm not a free speech Nazi looking to limit what you've got to say, post up anything you feel like posting! Hell, I've derailed enough threads in my time here.
