There are people who buy a car or bike, to commute. A person who buys a white base model sedan corolla is unlikely to be passionate about their machinery, unless it’s a daily driver, and they have a Hot Monaro/HSV/GT Falcon etc in the garage… A person who buys a MBike may do it for similar reasons. It may be a basic bike to commute daily, a sports bike to fang on a weekend on twisty bits, or a cruiser to plod along, and take in the scenery. There may be other categories but im a newbie so add them if u want to. One thing I have found to be consistent in a few forums, and talking to MBike people at work etc, is the stepping stone mentality. Whatever bike you have, is a stepping stone to a bigger, better, faster, flashier machine in a little while. There is nothing wrong with that if you can afford it, and are driven to get the best you can, but have you been hooked on a bike…that you just cant let go of? I am definitely emotional about my Eliminator. No matter what I get later…that will be a keeper. Is there one bike, you have become ‘emotionally’ hooked to, and wont let it go, or regret letting go, if you did?
