Are there are bikers here on the boards? If so, what have you got, how long you been riding, done any touring, etc?
I'm currently riding a Yamaha YZF600R Thundercat (£10 to the first person who makes the obvious joke) and have been for about 5 years. Possibly looking at getting a Suzuki V-Strom 650. Been riding for about 14 years and toured a few times, Ireland, Scotland.
Almost did John O'Groats to Lands End in a day.
Generally, biking is great!
