Alzo

Noooooooooooooo...it's a beginners bike.

XSR900 might be worth a look too?

Love the Z1000r, just a tad over budget :cool:

Xsr 700/900 worth a look. The 700s are cheap have a bit of character and are a bit of an unknown wheelie machine. Had there been a decent one around when I was looking for my last bike I would have gone that route over the street triple.

Ducati scrambler fine for pootling about but dynamically it's Lacking and a heavy old lump.

Z1000r - I'd rather have a mt10 for £500 cheaper that also won't depreciate as much.

Actually thinking of that - I'd have a good look at the mt09... another one I came close to.

The one bike I've never been able to part with is my rsv4 so if you wanted a long term keeper and it had to be a road bike that does everything I would actually bypass the street triple thoughts and get a 2016 on 1100 tuono. Utterly brilliant. I'd go with the R for more road biased suspension. My rsv4 is the R for same reason

Probably a headache from looking at all the different options lol

Nothing yet. Wouldn't mind swinging my legs over a few before making a decision.

CMC are doing 1/2 hour showroom appointments at the moment so might take a trip over next weekend.

Nothing yet... found out I can hire a z900 so might end up doing that for the time being whilst I make my mind up. Then I'll end up buying the first thing I looked at, which was a triumph street triple.  :rofl:
