And that is not one VFR750, that’s nine of them. Each with their specific purpose.

And each with their specific problem

and each with specific customisations

1.  For Sunday mornings BCR? 990 superduke
2.  For the bank holiday Wales trip? ZX10
3.  For the annual Alps trip? Multistrada
4.  For the London only short trips? CBR250R
5.  For the commute - 50 miles on motorway, then 5 miles central London? CBR600F

But if I could only have 1 bike that needed to do all the above, it’d be a VFR750

Daytona 675 and pani 899…I don’t care I’m rich :grin:

I guess if you’re rich you can buy enough triumphs to make sure at least one is working at any point. 

That would hint that he actually rode one of them at some point though

Does the Tracer not feature at all?

What makes the VFR better than the Tracer?

I don’t do any of those things, but the tiger’s fine for all of them, really. Given unlimited money it’d probably be the top-end XC but otherwise it’s really a pretty good fit for what I do. I’d have that, an XR650R with an electric start (I have won the lottery, right?) and something with a massive lumpy slow v-twin in it for commuting on.

So you want 2 bikes that break down all the time😁

engine character, comfort, dependability. 

By which, presumably, you mean “engine character and sentimentality”? :slight_smile:
