    Hi everyone been over on the dark side and had a gsa adventure for a bit just selling it at the moment and thinking of getting back on a triple I'd say my fav bikes so far were my 2010 daytona and 2011 gsx-r 750 :)

    fancying something a little more comfortable though as I still have a blade for superbike duties

    anyone rode a xsr-900 or mt 09.

    considering a 675 street trip to not had one of those or a daytona/ gsxr 750 again one of those

    Thanks in advance
     
  2. MCN done a write up about 2 weeks ago. Don`t think the XSR was too highly rated as the riding position was not great and the `Extras` that were fitted to make it an XSR generally made it worse.
    Should be available on the MCN website reviews.
     
  3. Or even better than that. Completely ignore MCN and find out for yourself ;)
    Go book a test ride.

    Striple R and S1000R are the best two bikes I've ridden

    Can't say I noticed the vibes in the pegs on the S1000R, was too busy shouting "WHEEEEEE!"
    As far as the looks go, Yeah it's not the prettiest but not hideous at all, riding it felt like a cuddle from a lady with big pert boobies. Sometimes you just have to be willing to see past the looks just to experience those amazing boobs.
     
  8. I have a Striple R and it is awesome in every way! More than enough for the road
