Hello Boys and Girls! In the coming year It looks like i'm getting on top of my finances, which means that I can get another toy to stuff around with. I'm thinking of getting something that's a polar opposite of my bike for long distance rides - two days or so, up to Sydney and back and so on. What kind of kays do you have on yours, and your mates bike? I'm trying to keep an eye out for ones that can have a few kilometers on the clock and still keep thundering on. I've heard the ZZR1100 is excellent at this - and easy to work on too. A customer I was speaking to the other day said the clutch basket pops out nice and easily etc. The other one I've been thinking of, and there'd be something charming about it - is the ol' BMW R65 or similar. Spannerman, who's in the SR500 club could ride just about anything he wanted to on any day, but he's always putting around on a crappy old boxer twin. I've also seen ones with mega, mega miles on them still kicking. Whatever I get will probably be cosmetically ratshit, or end up that way because I'll ride it on the days the SR doesn't make it out. Now the catch - looking to spend around 3k. I'm also budgeting on the second hand bike market dropping in the next year - but I really think that'll be more sportsbikes, Harleys etc as people have to sell off their toys to keep themselves going.
