2019 959 Panigale Corse, and traded the 2018 Super Sport (which I LOVED) for the 2022 V4 Street Fighter. What a machine the SF is! I still miss my panniers, but making do with a back pack for the longer rides. No regrets, for sure.
My neighbor has a Triumph Thruxton 900 that I really, really want. It sits in their driveway in the rain with a rusty chain, and I expect a dead battery…She will not sell it to me because it means too much to her, is that ironic?
Let it get good and rusty, that way I’ll get it cheap…someday. In the meantime I keep my own bike immaculate.
My current motorcycle is a 1993 Yamaha FJ 1200. I’ve upgraded the suspension and front and rear wheels to modern standards. It is a total hoot in the twisties and is as comfortable as any street bike that I’ve ever ridden. I will be adding a lighter, more tossable motorcycle suitable for track days to the garage soon. Probably something like a Ninja 400, KTM 390 Duke or a Yamaha R7.
Too bad your neighbor is so attached, you’re right to want to save it. I love mine cause it takes me back to my old Meridian Triumphs, the new ones are more advanced but they just don’t sound like Triumphs with their 270 degree cranks.
