Worst and best and briefly why...


Recommended Posts

Hiya Folks.

Just wondering, what is the worst bike you've ever owned and what is the best? And a brief reason why. No need for a dissertation, just a sentence or two...

Worst - RD125 horrible, smelly and difficult to start.

Best - KTM Duke 390. Love it, easy to ride, light, fast ish... Puts a big smile on my face, I arrive home relaxed and happy 8-)

Worst: GPZ900r - forever konking out on the A2 in the winter with carb icing, heavy as a house but reasonably comfy.

Best: ZX6r - sublime handling, reliable and just about enough power although more would be good. :-)

Worst ? - As a 17 year old with no money, I fell heir to a Norman 250. Similar to a Greeves, with a Villiers 2T twin cylinder 2 stroke engine. No go, little stop (drum brakes) and not much fun in between.

Best ? - I have progressed over the intervening 54 years to a BMW R1200RT LE which is an absolutely fabulous bike, brilliant in every way (although there are better looking bikes).

The bike I kept longest ? - a 1993 Kawasaki ZZR110D1. Brilliant.
