Ok people I value your opinions... why? god really knows, most of you will suggest somthing other than the bikes I want but I dont care. I need some imput on my next bike and its a real tearing choice! :roll: I've been riding non stop on '01 TT600 since I killed my 98' CBR600F LOVED both these bikes so the next step up in each brand for me is a killer. The VFR800! and the Sprint 1050!!! I have a plan with my brother that we will leave my place Hobart with or with out girlfriends and travel all the east coast of Australia to my brothers place in Brisbane where we will continue up to Cairns to celebrate New Years 2009-10!!! I've had my girl who loves to ride and its seriousl... not going away so I've had a sit with her on both of these bikes and she loves them both and has said "its up to you" :roll: damn I have to chose Mw hahahwa :twisted: More than ample room for her, bike rack, paniers and tank bag.. etc So now its down to brand loyalty!!! I'm a bit whoreish in this department... with standards!! So as long as I get a good ride from the bike I dont care which brand so I'm organising a ride on the sprint but I have to come up with $1000 for the bessing of the dealer. so in 6mths... I have a friend with a VFR800 who will be back from Europe in 6mths. So Till then I have no sense of either bikes... Thats where you lot come in... Your votes may sway me to the darkside and the VFR... but I'm after your opinions on both bikes.
