Test Ride
« on: November 13, 2013, 09:40:04 PM »
Currently running a Yamaha Fazer FZ6. Had made the decision to have a change for a sprint GT SE so arranged a test ride for today.

Rode it for a good 2 hours. What a great bike loved it and got off the bike with a big grin. Fully expected to put a deposit down but noticed the Trophy demo parked up and asked if I could have a go on that as well.

So off I went and  :005: OMFG what an incredible bike!! Was a bit daunting at first at slow speed but I was throwing it round like my little Fazer within a few miles and that torque WOW!!! Had much more confidence on the Trophy than the Sprint which I really did not expect.

Just need a lottery win now cause there is only one bike for me.

Does anyone not buy one of these bikes after a test ride?

Dave.

Dave,
Good luck with the lottery!!!
In answer to your question I can only speak for myself.
I took it for a test ride and bought it.
I'm done buying bikes for a while, a long while.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

Didn't have to test ride it.  Ordered one sight unseen.

An old biker must be a good rider
