First ride of the year is always fun!
@kev bandit 6 bought as a budget bike when my new house requested every penny I owned! Replaced a beautiful 2014 Fireblade 🙈
@bigbrownepaul I used to have a B6 as my workhorse bike - the thing was bulletproof and surprisingly fun to ride.
@bigbrownepaul the full naked bandits are like rocking horse shit these days - all the ones on Auto Trader etc. seem to be the part-faired version. Which is what I had...
@kev Easy to convert to naked, about 30 mins of unbolting the fairing etc then Street Triple headlights mount right up the the headstock holes on my Mk.
Just need to create so indicator mounts (£12 off ebay) and bobs your uncle naked bandit with OEM quality headlights. The aftermarket lights are somewhat variable in quality.....
@kev yeah the 650 does look good too! Having owned 3 Fireblades over the years this is the best compromise for my older bod.....
@kev Im spoiled here in California. I get to ride all year long with the right gear for the weather. That Tracer is a beauty!
@richards Very jealous! How are the roads out there?
Also, what are you riding? I'm considering adding a cruiser (possibly a HD) to my garage this yr.
@kev Plenty of fun roads just waiting to be found. Ive managed to find some questionable routes the further I push into the mountains but that's part of the fun I suppose.
I just picked up a KTM 790 Duke a month or two ago, and Ive got a ZX6R that needs a new engine. At some point I need to add a cruiser to my arsenal too.
