    As Iím retiring at the end of February I thought Iíd treat myself to a present.

    My ZZR needs a lot of tlc and to be honest I fancied a change. (Anybody want a tatty ZZR 1100)

    So bought this, 2013 with 2500 miles on the clock.

    Iíve sat on it..does that count 😂.

    I expect it to be comfortable, torquey, a bit lazy on the steering with the long wheelbase and a not fantastic gearbox.

    Itís going into hibernation till spring. Iíll see what itís like then.

    Happy new bike day
    A mate of mine had one, effortless touring, plenty of torques etc. I followed it around a lap of France and it was pretty good on the twisty bits too. He only sold it as it as he moved to France and registering it locally would have been such a Ball ache that he sold before moving

    I have the ST. The one with the perfect fuel injection. I think the GT is supposed to be more comfortable. More tour oriented where as the ST is more sport oriented.

    As soon as people hear you are retired they will be looking to fill up all your free time. Be sure to stake out your time early and establish your priorities with everyone you know. Otherwise you will have no free time at all.

    Enjoy your new ride.
