Well guys, insurance has accepted my claim - thank god! Assessor is coming around tomorrow, and if the blighter tries to screw me I'll break HIS damn elbow. (So Steven/Andrew, you'd best be damn quick about this horn! :P)

But now the question is where do I go from here?

I'm going to add some to my insurance payout, so I'm working with about 5k for a bike + helmet.

Must be something faired.

Was looking at CBRs and ZXRs - apparently the CBRs are a bitch to work on? Plus Squiggles will break my kneecaps if I buy a Honda. :dodge:

What's the options?

Yeah get a CBR250RR.....who say they are hard to work on? Are you comparing it to a naked bike? You could try a VTR250 or CB250...both are good reliable bikes. Dont worry about Squiggles he aint gonna do anything to you... but a 2004 gsx250 would be good at that price too....plenty of choices. Give us a ring so that we can go thrash the bike together....I mean look at the bike...

With the position/angle your elbow is set in (and for the next 12 months), you'll need a Harley Davidson with Ape hanger bars:

But they are naked! :(

Sounds like a plan. Plenty of time to peruse TardMe yet!

cbr and zxr are both very good machines, for your riding don't bother with a weak gsx or other inline twin... dunno about the hyosung but the one i rode seemed pretty gutless compared to a vtr and your old bandit

vtr is good but naked.... maybe fit some fairings from another bike for a custom job:D

wouldn't trust an fzr and can tell you right now not to buy a gsxr.


just out of interest, why the switch to fairings and why the naked bike to start with? obvious reasons welcome i'm just curious as to your thoughts

But I didn't realise at first how much weekend riding I'd be doing though - and how much nicer that is on a faired bike!

Also, a change is always nice :)

Plus he saw my zzr and thought she was the coolest bike ever and just had to have fairings to match, right?:love:
