My 2007 Suzuki GSXR 600 Isle of Man TT edition.

I feel like these things never age. Still gorgeous as ever at 12 years old.

Was thinking of selling her to put towards my m240i, but I really don't think I can!

It would definitely be a laugh riding that !! The torque off that 2.5ltr motor wouldn't half give you a rush.

My Sports bike days unfortunately are a distant memory, Us Old farts gota stick together !! :lol: :lol: You with yer Knees & Me with just about everything else :shock:

Good for you, as the rest of us "Sons Of Arthritis" are lucky if we can throw a leg over anything these days !! Thats possibly why the missus refers to me as "A Tool" :lol: :lol:

:lol: I Totally know where your coming from !
After dosing up for years on the pills before throwing me leg over numerous sports bikes, i felt it was my time to chill out a bit on the ride, and bought a HD !
I know the haters will think WTF ?? It always seems to follow when you mention you've gone from a Wok Burner to Yankee, but 2 wheels is 2 wheels, and Nowt gonna replace it !!

But I wanted to still ride, that will never end, just at a different pace than i was before, & if you can still do it..... Great, id like to see more "Ole farts & Geriatrics" Riding em :spotman:

Got myself a GS.
Comfy for massive distances, will literally go places you wouldn’t believe and bulletproof.
Still got the intercontinental ballistic missile and the Exocet rocket too as well as a couple of short range multipurpose tools.

Been riding for 25 years although this is the first year I’ve been without. House move meant the money was needed to give to the Government for the pleasure of moving!

Not actually missed it, there’s so much traffic on the roads nowadays even riding a bike becomes a chore. Also too dangerous to ride them to what they are capable of on the road. Used to do a lot of track days but down here on the south coast there aren’t any tracks locally so it got pretty expensive.

Had various Kawasaki’s over the years from ZXR’s to Z1000’s and tourers but the best were the MV Agusta’s, typically italian, fickle and unreliable at times but when going well there’s nothing else like them.

Once the itch returns I’m sure I’ll get another at some point.

Yep absolutely they've Mirror imaged the Ducati XDiavel S with the TFC Rocket 3 !

Although that said, you'll find most manufacturers do exactly the same thing in there "Secret Squirrel R&D Dept".... I Much prefer Triumph's attempt at a "Muscle Cruiser" than Ducati's any day of the week !! 8)

Tbh I have ridden the new 1260s diavel and if I had the dollar I'd buy one in a heartbeat! The ride was sublime and loved being carved into corners.
The only off-putting thing is the rattly clutch but then again the three cyclinder triumph I rode was also like a rattly diesel engine sound.
All above my budget anyway

I have done 1200 miles on the Diavel now and it hasn't missed a beat, the other bikes haven't even got a look in recently.
