So I was surprised to find another member driving the same motorbike as me. And a number of other members seem to "live to ride". So what's your steed?

Mine: 2006 Suzuki GSR600, about 17k on the clock.

Currently being stripped down (by me) to confirm a suspected conrod failure.

My current ride (2007 model GSR 600 - Same as Boogie's)and my dream ride (which is waaayyyy out of my abilities). :/

On what is to my mind one of the best balanced motorcycles of all: A Yamaha SR250. Hundreds of pharmacy deliverymen can't be wrong. It's 240cc mill is almost bulletproof, and frugal as hell, while still being torquey enough to lug my overfed ass around at a swift 90km/h. At 35,000km, its already paid for itself in petrol savings!

I don't know about that, you seem to lean into that corner very competently! :)

You know what they say: no pikchas, no bike! :P

Petrol savings:
For those who enjoy an algebraic challenge -
Suppose you buy a small motorcycle for Cm rand. You find that it consumes on average Vm liters of petrol per 100km. In contrast, your car consumes Vc liters per 100km. The fuel price is Cf per liter. How far do you have to ride your new bike before it has paid for its purchase price in fuel savings?
