Almost time for a new bike I’m thinking… Got a bit of money saved up so looking to sell the 99 fazer and get something with lower milage and possibly a bit more leg room…
NEW BIKE MUST HAVE…
Some wind protection/front fairing
Versatility - I commute mon-fri, weekend shreds, occasional motorway/touring
Luggage space - My only vehicle so I’m often strapping loads of junk to the back
‘Fun Factor’ - bit of gas there for when I need/want it
Comfort - no race replicas basically
I’m a 6’3" gangly freak boy so I’d prefer to stay away from the smaller bikes
-another fazer (the safe option)
amazing bikes, already PM’d him as mine is going up for sale. They really are the do it all bike, they hold thier value well as they get older due to reliability reputation I guess. I am 5"10 and find it perfect size so guess at over 6 foot might be slightly too small.
Z750s sounds right up his alley, good wind protection, decent MPG (61 A-Road thrashing, 41 city-thrashing), comfortable, loads up nicely and performs well. It’s probably not the most exciting bike in the world, but I think it looks mean
The unfaired version wouldn’t be too fun on the longer journeys I reckon
A mate of mine has a CBR600F and a K7 Gixxer 750. The CB has about 120k miles on it and he says he can ride it faster than his Gixxer in the twisties. Never heard a bad word said about the CBR, they do hold their value well though so not sure if you’ll get a good one for £2k?
