My thoughts too Dave, now thinking of going back to the most sensible of Honda's ~ a Pan Euro ST1300.

I can work on with ease, proven track record, reasonably priced, great CoG and the very best Japanese quality. :028:

"what happens when they go bust"? Which they did

One of the more responsible decisions in my biking life was to say "I'll have a think about it and call you next week" when asked at the factory if I wanted to put a deposit down on a Norton, I never did call them back  :164:

I had a 2007 ST1300 before I bought the TTSE.  I remember thinking the ST was 'the last bike I'll ever own'.  Then I made the mistake of trying out the Triumph...

They are heavy and the engine is a bit too 'automotive', but reliable as a rock and get the job done admirably..

I went for the BMW 1250 RT, got a  decent deal on a 3 month old one, not for everyone, thats why this one was back in the showroom after 3 months  :008:

Its been good for me, very similar to Trophy, more tech, less weather protection, but new with a 3 yr warranty.

Sadly it comes down to that with most modern vehicles. I wonder if Kia will ever make a bike I like  :084: 7 years warranty could be quite persuasive.

If they did, I wonder if they’d restrict the mileage in the same way they do with the cars, so that only the lowest mileage users can ever see the full 7 years?

Kia's new car warranty is 7 Years or 100,000 miles - equivalent to over 14,200 miles per year !

I bought one last year, and can honestly say it's absolutely superb !  :169:

Glad you’re pleased with it   :002:

But, it does illustrate my point, it works well for low mileage users; my Land Rover is still under warranty at 100,500 miles (and would have been around 135,000 miles, if not for Covid) and the warranty still has until the 30th of September to run  :028:
