    So what’s everyone saying?

    Sold my R6 now want something else.... Thinking S1000RR or Ducati of some kind?

    Must admit I’m fat and old now at 32 so could do with something more grown up but the Beemer seems incredible value right now!

    Well I just trying to test the water with insurance because my poxy NCD had expired literally a few months ago so I’m having problems.

    S1000RR quote went from £508 to no we won’t quote u!!!!! Bikesure want £1600 but the R1 is even more!

    Picked up a Z1000 to run this year, it needed a good tidy up but all done now and its ready to rock once the better weather appears.

    Yes, far in excess of my riding ability!

    single R, never got into supersports. I should really be looking at an XR but maybe next time around.

    New or used?

    Why you'd pick anything other than a 2015+ RR for 10k ish is beyond me.

    I can’t wait to get out on mine, GSXR1000R not ridden since end of Sept, it will scare me ****less first time out. I’m 58 and 6’ 2” and it’s comfy enough for a couple of hours

    I bought a Kwak Ninja 1000SX in December for longer trips and not even ridden that yet, they’re both currently very shiny though :D

    quite possibly still the greatest GSXR ever, if that’s in good condition that’s a great price they’re only going up in value

    If insurance is a problem, why not something that fall into classic status until you build up some NCB again.?
    My R1 is 20 years old this year and if you fitted onto an R6 you'll be fine with this.

    I'm 5 years in on an Orange ZX10r E8F. 172bhp at the rear wheel and I love it to bits. I've already been out on mine twice this year to get about for 'essential travel' for work of course.

    Just hoping they open Wales up, by far the best roads and only 15mins for me from Bristol.

    I'm tempted to give a newer bike ago though and thinking

    Big Bang R1
    Another ZX10 - 2014+
    S1000RR - Just seem expensive to me compared to the similar aged bikes
    Duc Hypermotard
    Triumph Speed Triple R

    Like most bikers I want more bikes and thinking a Greenlaner and Aprilia RS250 that I should have bought years ago.
