I dropped my beloved VTR off for service today and they gave me a loan bike, an old CB250, one I know well because I did my Qride there. I cannot believe what a POS it is! The clutch is a ton of bricks, gear lever doesn't click properly and took me a while to be comfy revving its nuts off. I have gotten so used to how I sit in my bike that I have customised to fit me so well that riding another bike is so alien and feels like I can't ride for shit. After a few dramas on Ipswich road traffic, I got used to the shittiness of the bike. But when I got my VTR back, it feels foreign for a while! I really don't know how people have a few bikes, how do you manage the switcheroo? Is there a routine you go through to familiarise yourself with a bike you are riding if you are switching from another one?
