Today.  Z1000SX. 114 miles.
Started dry but soon started raining. Nothing too heavy.
Maybe squeeze in another couple of runs before it gets too cold. 🤞

Can't believe you are spending less on the better bike. 🤔
You got shot of the cheap green perspex yet ?

KTM SMT 990
ride to work and lidl on way home

the speed triple has been with dealer since 23rd sept, and looks unlikely i will see again anytime soon :cry:


New gearbox ?

that was original plan, that then changed to a repair, now they don't have the parts in stock
i am not a happy bunny


No wonder.
No courtesy bike ?
I'd be jumping up and down wanting a new gearbox.
Hope it gets resolved soon.

Quote from: Lord Danoir the first on October 13, 2020, 01:05:40 pmJuly I think...... taxed it, MOT'd it, insured it...... rode it to work and ran out of petrol on the way home.

I've tried and tried and tried, and I get absolutely nothing out of road bikes.

Once things settle down, I might send it out to Spain and see if I use it more out there. That's where I do most of my track riding and the roads around where we live are sooooooo nice.

Plenty good roads in the UK. Shame we don't have the Spanish weather.

Possibly the wrong time to start this one.
Bike. Anywhere interesting . Bimble or spirited.  Or just to pop out for an errand ?

Sunday afternoon.
ZRX1200R.
Scottish Borders. Had to do the Beeftub twice.
Spirited at times.

Quote from: Alzo on October 03, 2020, 06:48:56 pmRode Davy's SX and thought the suspension was plush...ZH2 suspension was sublime too...Kwak seemed to have got that part pretty sorted.

Standard suspension is average at best. Not enough rebound damping in the forks. If I keep my SX I will be giving it the Maxton treatment.
Other than that, the SX is a great all rounder.
2021 SX looks sharp. 😎

The Kawasaki is officially known as the Ninja 1000SX. There is the Ninja 1000SX performance and tourer versions, and the performance tourer version too. Just to confuse folk.
If I was a wood butcher , I would have a Ninja 1000SX performance tourer, in black. 😉😎

Quote from: Alzo on October 01, 2020, 12:36:23 pmPS: I'm toying with the 2021 SX1000...like what I see...would suit for a bit of spirited riding and touring.
It's an impressive piece of kit still, not sure I'm liking the look but cant have everything

I thought you loved the look of the SX. Or are you getting the XR and SX mixed up ? Alzo is toying with the Kawasaki Ninja Z1000SX. The same as what you fancy.
