Hi All, Just interested to hear how often the people on this forum change bikes. Reason I ask is I'm really enjoying my z750 but I'm already having a hankering to get on a 1000. The reason for it is just silly... just because I can! Anyway just wanted to know what people consider is an "acceptable" amount of time to trade out their bikes. Also if you do swap out your bikes on a scheduled or regular basis what price bracket do you generally go for? I might add please no flamming on peoples financial choices, this is just a light, out of interest discussion! I'll start... Had my z750 for a year now and am tossing up on upgrading again. Nothing wrong with the bike, but I'm already wanting to mod it thinking the money would be better spent on a bigger bike and one thats already had the pipe and bits of bling already done. Before that I had a zeal for my LAMS component which I kept for a year before trading it in. Pretty much forced into it as the cost of repair was worth more than the bikes value. Got a trade in value I couldn't refuse and ended up making a profit in the end! Next bike I would sensibly try to keep it under 10k... stretch to 12k if its something I like. If the bike was a "life keeper" I'd consider going all out for 20-25k for the new Superduke. Finding it hard to justify though..... would definitely have to be a life keeper and not a passing fling.
