"Rule Brittania......"

I just changed to the Canuck spelling..............eh

Can i come over there and slap u silly and nick ya bikes ....bast, why did u have to go and buy 2 of my dream bikes .. eh eh come on ...v nice btw.

Lovely, though I fail to see the need for two similar bikes Quite fancied a Daytona 955i but they were too much money at the time, though I might be persuded in future, the RS would suit my needs better, as I'd like to do more trip abroad in future or at least when my youngest get to an age where we can safely leave her Home Alone

I thought about the "similar" bikes thing Throb. A Tiger was my first choice but the motor is detuned. The Daytona wasn't much more comfy than the SP and the RS was cheap to buy. The RS was the only one that immediately grabbed me when I took it for a spin also. I couldn't bear one more year with the SP. They're depreciating like crazy here and the comfort was non existent.The Guzzi is turning into a Hooligan bike, surprisingly As for wanting a Triumph, I've never owned one or a triple and am getting tired of Japanese clones with no character.

Very nice indeed I fancy a triple myself for my next steed seriously been thinking about it after test riding a Daytona and Speed Triple

OOOOOOOOOOOOO No Knighthood for you sir!!:burp:

v nice DB, i'm half thinking about swapping the vtr for a rs sprint. took 1 ofr a test ride and was well impressed, the engine is fecking superb and liked the front end a lot (well anythings an improvement over the vtr!). really fancy a triple though, also a bit bored of jap 4's.

The motor is what grabbed me when I first rode one The SP-1 was very good at what it was designed to do. Go very fast around corners, but the Triumph is made for the real world and I'm willing to sacrifice some handling for comfort, something different and a 2 year warranty. None of the Jap bikes offer more than a 1 year warranty here. Ducati, Guzzi and Triumph all have 2 years.The RS was cheaper than what I'd have to pay for a 600 Jap bike also.
