    If there were no Birds... 2016

    Intrigued that the old poll "If there were no Birds" got resurrected, but eight years ago the OP only listed Japanese bikes.

    So...

    If you were to replace your Blackbird with something that exists in 2016... which manufacturer?

    Well, I thought I had some special buttons now, but some people have even specialer buttons.

    KTM Super Duke 1290GT. Aww yeah, sex on two wheels. I was shopping for one and decided to add it to my stable, then I wrecked my Bird. I still might add the GT later.

    Well, considering Kawasaki has continued to evolve a sport tourer, and Honda hasent improved the XX since 1999, (almost 2 decades) and the Vfr is I step down from the XX, yup zx14r will be my next bike. Shame on Honda for abandoning the marketspace.

    Re: If there were no Birds... 2016

    First choice would be the BMW K1300S, second choice ZX-14...

    Re: If there were no Birds... 2016

    I bought the bird for long haul flying. The closest to it for me I think is the K1300S. There are not many GT Sport touring bikes out there.

    A friend acquired the K1300S... Had a chance to try it this weekend, it's a dream to ride and would be my new choice! ... But I'd still keep my bird!

    ZX14R, unfortunately! It'd be nice to see Honda start making premier Sport and Sport-Touring bikes again, but until then... :-(

    I had a Sprint GT, and it was a great bike, I loved the way it looked, but in the end I traded it on the ZX14 because after a Blackbird previously, the Sprint just lacked authority.

    The Sprint was super comfy though

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