Ok this is the situation i have just gone full time with the army and am likely to be deployed for about a minimum of 6 months of each year. Now my question is what bike should i get? I am after something which is likely to sit in the garage for at least 6 months each year. But when not in the garage all i will be using it for is twisties, posing and track days no commuting. Because the bike will not get alot of Km's on it am i better going with something second hand or new?? what would hold it's value the most? The bikes that make it on the list are. Suzuki gsx-r 750 Pros: perfect weight-power ratio - looks awsome in black great sound great handling Cons: Cant think of any Triumph Daytona 675 Pros: Best handling bike around Braided brakes as standard has flexible engine Cons: 4th in the looks department Bit suss on the sound of a tripple Unknown reliability Yamaha R6 Pros: 1st in the looks department Manic redline potential sounds awsome Cons: No bottom end power Honda vtr 1000 SP2 Pros: Sounds louder than god Gives me a mega hard on classic WSB looks Cons: Snatchy fuel injection Small fuel tank and lower range Heavy and 4th in handling Any comments/critisism on bikes would be helpful. And yes i will try to get some test rides to see which one tickles my pickle just want to get other opinions first. Also is there any specific problems with these models ??? I have heard there is a fault with the r6 fuel tank?? Also heard that the SP2 has snatchy fuel injection??
