I got my bike because of the riding position. Fazer - more upright - My arthritky neck and wrists won't allow me to ride a sports bike for long periods.

Not the way I ride the fekin thing !!!!!


:lol: All I'm saying is that I struggle to ride sports bikes because of the position. I love the look of them.

I have great fun on my Fazer and would only change her for a Fazer thou or a Busa with raised bars.

It is the other halfs, but he has two and the one he is working on at the moment is now 1400 engine and lots of other stuff.. I would love it but-- I struggle with the wide and low - for me - handle bar position. So he is going to put some different bars in it and let me try. IF i can have as much "fun" on it as I do my Fazer then.... well as per other post good job I have a new Arai :wink: :wink:

I'm 6 foot 5....


Used to ride an SV650s but it was a bit small.....


Tried a few different bikes and settled on ZZR1200 as it was practicle, comfortable and went like a wippet with a thistle up its port hole..... :D


Other bikes I fit on and enjoyed riding were the Triumph Sprint ST 1050 and Speed Triple 1050....


Comfort, Practicallity and a bit of oomph is most important.....


I don't fit on any sports bikes..... :(

Oooh tricky tricky tricky ...


A lot of the time with bikes these days the functional forms needed for performance just so happen to be aesthetically yummy (that's a technical term :wink: ) too .....


Errrrr ... spose I'd say manufacturer, cos I like Kwak's looks and they

obviously perform best :lol:
