    Ok, so recovering well after my accident (4 weeks ago as I write this post). A few days ago I put a deposit on a HD 883 custom 100th anniversary edition (it may have the 1200 kit, not sure). Not what I set out to buy,certainly doesn't look like the zx14 I had in mind! Anyway, pickup next week and looking forward to chugging around town :)

    I'm still on crutches, so the dude didn't know what to think when I crutched into the showroom. :)

  3. Congrats mate. Be interested to hear how that switch in thinking worked as that's quite a massive change from ZX to HD... ;)
  4. The psychology associated with an off maybe ?? Or not.
  5. Never been a great fan of faired bikes, like to see the motor. The sprint was the odd one out, though I will miss its zippiness!

    Cruiser -> sprint -> cruiser -> who knows
  6. the 883 looks nice, plenty of bling options there if you want them. they do have a bit of clearance if you want to somewhat sporty. knees in the breeze is always good.
