Just a quick posting to say thank you to Chris Ball for another opportunuity to try lots of different bikes .... and the excellent all-you-can-eat breakfast at the end.
A quick review of the bikes 'wot I rode' - hopefully avoiding any worn-out over-used cliches from the magazines ....
CBR500R - good riding position (for me), punchy motor, light responsive handling - sweeeeeet! 🙂
GXR750 - sounded like, and went like a turbine, very smooth, quick(!) handling - hooligan! 😉
CBR1000RR - (Fireblade) - rocket ship, responds to a committed rider - awesome! 😯
CTX1300 - different, but fun to ride, really torquey motor - cool! 😎
DL650 V-Strom - nice ride, good handling, but I suffered from helmet buffeting 😕
Brewers Fayre (Broadland) breakfast - excellent!
The other bikes on offer were the DL1000 V-Strom, VFR1200, VFR800, Crosstourer, and .... the last one escapes my memory 😕 Anyone care to help me out and add their reviews?
