    Then of course I bought another Bird as well :-/

    Re: If there were no Birds... 2016

    Bit worried that riding the BB might be effecting my eyesight with all these votes for the zx14

    Not sure on make, but would like a twin or triple next.

    Re: If there were no Birds... 2016

    Had a ZZR for a couple of years, but never really gelled with the riding position and, of course, the handling.

    To be fair, it's a long, long bike, so maybe I expected too much - but then the rust appeared after 6 months and I fell out with it, despite the brilliant looks, unbelievable motor, great brakes, dashboard etc. Still got my vote on here, though.

    Now, they're turning them out in awesome liveries with Ohlins and all sorts of bling - but I was still surprised to see how many folk on here have gone for the big Kwak.

    ...Be interesting to see how it all ends!

    Re: If there were no Birds... 2016

    Yeah, ZZR1400 for me too. It's a ZZR not a ZX. That's Zed Zed Ahh, not Zee Exx. And it's made largely of 'AL You Mini Um' not 'AL OO Minum'

    Re: If there were no Birds... 2016

    I'm always on the hunt for a cheap deal, this is how I landed on the Blackbird but other bikes I considered are Suzuki SV1000S, Honda CB1300, or ZZR1100

    Re: If there were no Birds... 2016

    Good point that JMD. I remember all the talk of a v5 Blackbird etc and the we ended up with that VFR12. Brilliant bike apparently but as ugly as my mother in law but slightly lighter. Probably better fun to ride too but i've never tried either, nor would I want to

    Re: If there were no Birds... 2016

    Im thinking maybe a big triple or twin that still has twisty fun, but can have a cruisier feel. Too much to ask i know

    Re: If there were no Birds... 2016

    TL 1000R all day long. In fact when I get my GSXr 750 sold I may hunt for one.



    I want something the complete opposite of refined..
