1 Status quo.... on Tue Jun 23, 2015 4:51 pm

...I've deliberated recently about getting rid of a bike, maybe all of them. Then I wondered about getting one good all rounder to use for work as well as play (I plan going back into self employment quite soon) Narrowed it down to Z1000SX or the Yamaha Tracer, but having viewed them, and the cost to change, the material benefit over my 2002 VFR looks not very much.
So I figure on battering my VFR when possible on jobs, leaving me with the S3 to play with. Bought a tank jacket & soft pannier rack for the Speedy mind, maybe now it's good for a weekend away. So all that remains is to count down the clock, take my company car to Spain in a couple of weeks, then give my notice. Hopefully I might actually get out to meet one or two of you in the late summer!! Smile

I know, it's been a miserable year or more, working weekends to build my business back up. But looks like my sis in law will be gone soon, and I will have some more time for myself too. Been wondering about a long weekened somewhere if I can spring some cash. You'll be the first to know Dave, panic not. Wink

Looked at one today in Clay Cross, but I've decided to keep what I have. Perfectly adequate bikes. If I have some spare money I aim to spend it on something other than being beholden to an HP company. Smile

One thing about the Yam that really appeals is actually that it isn't an inline four. I like triples, obviously since I have my S3. I've done inline fours to death, another reason TBH that I figure on keeping the VFR. Bit low on power but a V4 is a sweet motor to use-and listen to thumbs

Give me rwu forks any day Very Happy just ask Mark what a pain changing seals were on his Busa. Always liked the VFR's so I would prob be my choice. Good luck with your new work venture Alan! thumbs thumbs thumbs
