Sam,

I used to be part of the 'BB is the best' club and also the 'there is no other bike as good as the BB' society but I reckon that if I could afford a brand new bike the ZX12R would be top of the list - at least until the new BB shows it's credentials.

Good looking bike, performance you just can't argue with, better handling than a BB - now I hardly ever take a pillion I'd be up for one :yo:

Good call :bow:

And there lies the rub

If I didnt carry a pillion I would have an SP2, or an R1 or a ZX12 or a Fireblade or a GSXR or a 996 or a Bimota, or any of the 'arse up nose down' plethora of exotic stuff, however, the pillion doesn't want to look a twat sitting on the perch that passes for a seat on ALL of these, with her knees round her ears, even for the odd summer night bimble. let alone a 3.5k mile 16 day trip round europe!!

So, until she gets bored with that (unlikely) I will happily stick with 180+mph scratchin mile muncher.

None taken.......

I think the mirrors are questionable, looks like they belong on a scooter - thinking about it the whole thing looks a bit scooterish..... :goofy:

Powers a bit wimpish too at 108 BHP :B
