Thread: What bike?

  1. #1

    What bike?

    I am looking for a motorbike to go from Mullingar to Dublin without killing or boring me?

    Previous bikes were all sport's bikes Blade, ZXR, TLR etc

    Any suggestions?

    MT 09 SP off the top of my head

    Many more out there though.

    The choice is amazing at the moment, 1 bike can do it all. Just tell us your budget
    Any car that merely takes you from A-B does not go far enough.

    Another blade? Seems to be the default choice. Was there something wrong with the previous bikes that you were not happy about.

    The question is far too broad to answer without more details on your specific requirements.

    My preferred method to avoid boredom is to have a different bike for each day of the week. I am almost there - just three more bikes to get.

    I’m assuming the “hunched over” position is the killing part...?

    I was commuting about 35k into Dublin and ended up with a K1200GT lots of grunt and with full luggage or just the top box it made easy enough work of filtering when needed and with 150+(ish) bhp on tap and over 200 miles to a tank it was easy to run. parts are cheap and its easy to work on when needed. Heated Grips/Seats, a great big screen, Xenons the list goes on .... I think these are often overlooked for the big GS1200 but they make a lot of sense I reckon! also the K1300GT or S models are great value at the moment

    My commute has changed now so it does'nt get too much use mid week but they are worth a look for sure

    Is that a commute?

    I'd have an R1200RT for that trip, or the K'GT mentioned above.
    boring, I'd want comfort for that trip.

    Big and comfy with fairing and a decent screen with reasonable running costs. If going newer I might look at a tracer 900. A little older and a tiger would do that very nicely. RT is a good shout.

    These will go on forever, and still look fresh 15+ years on.
