Any bikers?

As title really i passed my test in 2008 had a ninja400 for 2 years sold it and havent had a bike since. Well since last week anyway, picked up a totally standard gsxr600 k8 with just 2300 miles on and in showroom condition and absolutely love it forgot how much i missed riding a bike! Picked it up in lincolnshire and had the 3 and a half hour journey home apart from some slightly sore wrists i thoroughly enjoyed it!




Any other riders on here and what you got?

You need to ride faster, that's the only way to get the weight of your wrists on a sports bike.

On my last ZX7R about 120mph+ was most comfortable and best for the wrists, err honest officer.
