Just realised that the bloke in that video is the guy that got really pissed off when everyone kept crashing the ZX6R test bikes at Mallory 🤣

Isnt it weird how 650/700cc is now seen as a small bike?

Not impressed by any of these parallel twin, commuter bikes.

And the people responsible for naming that new R7 should be strung up 🤣

Did 400 miles, so I sold it  :rofl:

In other news I've done 4000km on my other bikes though so happy with that!

190/55 back tyre and 10mm of washers under the shock mount improves the steering no end.
Front forks are weird too. The preload adjuster adjusts ride height rather than preload. Forks on mine were pretty good with the right rate Ohlins springs and new oil.

Sold my MT10 couple of weeks ago after being embarrassed at how few miles I'd done between MOT.
Think I need to scratch an American Cruiser shaped itch so next bike is going to be a Harley Fat Bob or an Indian Chief Bobber. Next spring because the Indian waiting list is months!

My bike has an E10 sticker on the tank and cars seem to have been OK with E10 since the dark ages.
Super Unleaded will stay E5 I think?

Commuter bike in a party frock.
Call it an MT-Sport or something daft but it's just cashing in on the 'R' brand.
Probably a nice little bike as a step up from the other pretend sportsbikes the manufacturers churn out to people that don't know any better.

I've got a Quadlock mount in the Jeep, and I'm quite impressed with the quality. The phone case is pretty low profile too. The cycle mount is pretty solid too but I've only used that a few times.

Quote from: MOzZereLLa on May 04, 2021, 03:30:25 PMHave a few rest rides lined up for this weekend. Used GS, 890 Adventure, Tiger GT Pro, and used 1290 Adventure

The trade in offer for my RS against a brand new KTM is excellent...

Pretty exotic line-up for a dual carriageway commute there, mi amigo?

Quote from: David W on April 15, 2021, 07:48:26 PMI'd want something completely different in a 2nd bike otherwise I reckon one of them will just end up never used.
My 2nd bike daydream is either an Africa Twin or an Indian Chief Dark Horse.
The Indians look fantastic...the build quality is sublime...and I agree...they'd be fun for a lazy ride

I nearly bought one instead of the MT10 at the time, and do catch myself thinking about a swap. My days of two bikes are over though as I barely ride the one I've got!

I don't know why, but I've hated every ZX10R they've ever released. They all just look shit.

The number plate relocation is a bit of a transformation!

XSR900 might be worth a look too?
