Been a very intersting year so far, and I have hardly been on here posting - reading lots of stuff though . Lately things have been a challenge. I am really hating the CB atm, and the latest thing to go wrong with it is the Master Cylinder failing...That pretty much said to me it is time to get another bike. So I am. I went to the Kawasaki Dealer today, and was lookin around the yard, when one of the sales reps came up and mentioned that an '06 model Hyosung GT650R had just rolled in. It only has 6600k's on the clock, and it's a stunner. Yes Loz I HAVE been reading all the posts on here about the hyosung bikes, and yeah it has swayed me a bit into getting a Jap bike instead. I still may consider this too before the finance for the GT gets approved, but I took it for a ride and it felt good...not as good as my old CB900 (maybe that's a warning) but it was still fun. V-Twins are very different compared to an inline 4, so the low-down power & chunkiness of a V-Twin compared to the smoothness and high-end power of the inline 4s is hard to compare. It's either this, or ride around on a bike with only a rear brake for a month until my boss gets his R32 GTR for me to buy...I keep thinking about it, and the more I do the more I want a bike, but I really want to be different, yet there's that many negitive comments about them screwing up all the time...I should really go back to the dealer with all the knowledge I've gained by spending about 4 hours on the net tonight reading up about Hyosungs and give that to them. If I choose not to get the GT, I want a new or near new Ninja 600/636. They are SEX!!! especially the orange ones.
