Congrats to those upgrading & new bike purchases but with all due respect I just have to ask the question here, - are some of you ready for a faster bike? There was no shortage of netcrashers last summer & many 250 sports bike riders come off and subsequently binned their bikes, but instead of replacing them they purchase a larger capacity bike, this sounds bizarre to me, isn’t it clear that you need more time/practice/instruction to master your 250 before progressing to a faster & bigger capacity sports bike? I would have thought so. I’m no expert & I don’t ride a sports bike, but of those that I’ve known most have served their time doing the standard apprenticeship of : 250cc – 600cc – 1000cc, and most importantly they have spent the time to master each capacity before going on to the next one. I see the logic in that as an investment in your safety and wellbeing. Hope some of you know what you’re doing.
