posticon Members Motorbikes


Hi Guys,

Seeing that many of our members (myself included) are current or ex motorbike owners, I was given a suggestion that we start this thread so we can share our rides and views on our motorbikes and promote safe riding.

I will start this...

I have been riding since December 2012 (a late and mature rider I know) and I am currently riding a LAMS approved Suzuki GS500F 2010 model which has served me quite well.

Here is a pic of it:

This thread is NOT be used to share your Max Speeds and Wheelies!

Re:


It doesn't matter what you ride, ore where you go, as long as you enjoy it.
We are all out there together.
Just watch out for the people, who come out with the famous words;
S.M.I.D.S.Y
(Sorry Mate I Didn't See You!)

I borrowed a mates CB250 Honda once,
it was the most fun I have ever had on a small bike.
No wonder a lot of the riding schools were using them.

Stay upright everyone, & enjoy the ride.

Here's the two bike I've had in my time...

A Yamaha V-Star XVS1100A Classic with quite a few mods and a Suzuki B-King (aka a naked Hyabusa) with fender eliminator and carbon mirrors...

Image Image


Image Image


Miss them both and really want to get back into riding. Next will be one of these... Harley Davidson Fat Boy Lo or a Victory High Ball.

Re:


Jalalski,

The ZX10 I had was the original model (an H2) which I bought new in 1991. It was a stupendous bike, but very different to the current models that bear the same name. It took me all over Europe, around the Nurburgring a few times, and was used through two UK winters - not for the faint-hearted! This was taken when I had a fair bit more hair...

Image

The GSXR750W-N was a bike which I never got on with to be honest. It never let me down, and I did plenty of trips on it (Le Mans, Bol D'Or etc), but I was always a little underwhelmed by it. Nowhere near as good as the reviews of the day had led me to believe.

The 750K6 is a different thing altogether. Magic handling, loads (and loads) of power, and stupendous brakes. It is a marvellous bike for the first hour, but then absolute purgatory thereafter. Don't buy one if 1. you're not married to a chiropractor, or 2. want to travel more than an hour from your house. Great bike though.

If you want the best of all worlds though - the touring comfort of the ZX10, the handling of the 750K6, and the warm and fuzzy ownership pride of owning a classic - buy a 1200GS. It is faster on virtually any Australian road than any of the current sportsbikes, starts, goes, and polishes up like new after 30,000km.
