  1. Which sport tourer is best sport tourer?

    Depending on how his negotiations went, he may not have vacation time for a while at the new job?
  2. Which sport tourer is best sport tourer?

    I got my Sprint GT a few seasons ago, and I like it....don't LOVE it, but it does all I need it to. It's fairly a bareboned bike in that it doesn't have electronic amenities that I find attractive the older I get, but it's a great 'tweener bike between sportbike and FJR/C14 sized ST's. I just really needed to step down from the power of my ZX14. It was thirsty, too long legged for what I needed, no luggage, ate rear tires as fast as it drank fuel ( my wrist is to blame there though ), and just begged to be fast on the freeways....so I cashed in my chips while I was still holding some. Sprint GT is probably closer in seating and feel to your Bandit, but the ST is more abundantly for sale - yet I found it cramped and sportier seated. The 1050 is a great motor though, love the torque and the tone of it. Good luck Sam, I shopped for nearly a year and changed my mind at least 6 times before committing to the Triumph LOL

    Don't forget to set aside an easy $500 or more for GOOD protective riding gear.....making your bike budget more like $3k-$3500

    Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you're going about things the right way with learning via the MSF course.

    Might be in for this. Planning to race OMRL as much as I can this season, and at the very least I'd like to ride their practice day on the kartway

    Out for this. Didn't get home to bed until 4am. Just woke up. Feeling rough after last night's ruckus. Race safely...eat, drink, and be merry
  14. My thoughts exactly man. My daughter will be 21 later this year, but no matter how old she gets....this kind of thing still tugs at my feels too
