To mt-01, or not to mt-01.... That is the question... I got the liscence back after a loooooooooong abscence last week, an took temp ownership of a GSXR600 '05. Took it out to the hills with the Vic Sportsbike Owners Club today. Farking hell, those guys can ride! Saw one of em lose it, and put his 'blade around a tree at a great rate of knots... He was a-ok, but the bike was literally snapped in half. I like the GSXR, but as a lot of you know i would rather a dirty streetfighter or some muscly thing that scares little kids and makes grandmas curse motorcyclists... Sorry. I am seriously considering the Yamaha MT-01... A 1670cc V-twin (air cooled) with the motor from the Yam warrior tuned up for some more ponies. The only bikes in its class are beull, confederate hellcat (US) and maybe, maybe a 1000cc duke monster or KTM superduke... Does anyone you know ride one? I want something that I can just cruise on (unlike the aggro Gixxer that is always nagging to be ridden hard), and something that I can still wrestle with thru the twisties. Ive read the reviews and stuff, and all seems good. I have seen pics of these monsters doing wheelies, but does anyone know if their easy to pop up? Im not looking to go over the westgate, just little lofts off the lights, as the 48* twin would probably not like being at that angle for too long. Has anyone heard any negatives, apart from a 7 grand redline? Im working at evolution yamaha, and have one right in front of my desk, so the decision will be made soon... You help would be great! I'll try to make it to thursday mystery ride to have a chat! Ride Safe!
