i sold my ZX9R to get a ZR7 winter hack… till next summer… but i miss the slimness of the sportsbike in really heavy congested traffic !! :pinch:
because the ZR7 is restricted to the handlebars & big sticky out mirrors… its so annoying… knowing they’re gaps that the sportsbike with its skinny clip ons & mirrors that fold in then pop back out into the correct position would get through… lol !!
i used to curse the BMW’s with their huge Topboxes & Panniers… lol… but now i feel like im getting daggers from other riders… lol… oh the shame !!
just wondering if others with winter hacks find the same thing… lol !?
Yeah, funnily enough I’ve experienced this - the clips ons on the sportsbike sit lower (below mirror height) and you can fold the mirrors in when necessary - although it is easier zig zagging something like a hornet through slow moving multiple lane traffic possibly due to the gentler rake of the forks and the riding position.
