{Moved from General}Well I ended up buying the trumpy!

Discussion in 'Showcase' at netrider.net.au started by TRA, May 7, 2011.

  1. Brand spanking new Sprint ST. When I stop smiling I will write up in the other thread why I chose the Sprint of the VFR. I picked it up at 2.30pm and by the time all the final paperwork and run down was finished it was 3.30. Took it out for a good hour and half putting along the water front. Cant take it over 3500rpm until I have done 200kms. Managed to rack up 70kms so far.

    I decided to keep the GS500F for now. I really dont want the new bike getting banged up by knobheads in town who think they can fit their old shitter in the 20cm space between my bike and the next blokes. Plus the GS500 tires are already like car tires from doing the straight line commute each day. Not to mention that I just could not let go of a near new gs500 for the price the dealers would offer me for trade.

    I love reading about people's new bikes; it's the closest I'll ever come to having one, great vicarious enjoyment.

    of course, it goes without saying, pictures or it never happened :LOL:

    Its pretty hard to take pictures when you cant get off the bike :D :D

    I will take some today. Need to update my facebook avatar with the new machine.
  12. Sprint ST was definitely in the hunt if I ever gave up the 9R... however for me the new Ninja 1000 has taken the lead.

    Enjoy your new bike. 'Gratz :)
