Well it's nearly October and that means time to consider selling the ZZR and moving up the capacity tree. My item of desire was a Triumph America or the better handling and greater performing Speedmaster, but due to a planned (by SheGod) overseas trip to the UK, I am having to rethink what to get. Don't want to jump up to a litre bike, not keen on naked's and too young (only 53) to buy a Jap cruiser. So, trying to keep my budget under $9000 and from what I have seen in ads and shops I have shortened my list to the following; Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat Honda CBR600F Kawasaki ZX636 Triumph Daytona T595 Honda VFR800 (favourite but a budget stretcher) Final choice will be ride and compatability but any feedback on these, positive or negative would be appreciated, also considered the Honda VFR750, being an older bike are they still a good option. My apologies to the Suzuki riders I forgot to add the GSX750F to the list. BTW. My ZZR250 is a black 2004 model with 13000km on the clock, Ventura gear rack and a set of Megacycle pipes, if your looking around October and have around $6300 to spend, PM me.
