ok, so this is my story ~
I was hit by a DD two years ago on my Yamaha R1. It was totaled.
My husband who has many bikes, RDs, RZs...NSRs..a water buffalo (he restores) and has ZX7rr and a 996 ...persuaded me to buy a Duc....Which I completely love BUT...
I don't want to be a poser! lol
you are absolutely right , I cannot ride it to it's full potential and it has soooooo much torque, completely different from my R1 which fit me like a glove. (I would have gotten another R1 at the time, but the new ones look ugly...IMO)
Anyway so last weekend I took a skillzday class. I just thought it would help, I still have alot of fear left over from the accident. Super fun and learned a lot. (btw, I've been riding dirt/street for 25 years)
But I realized I think I need a different style of bike.
I have ALWAYS loved cafe racers, and doing the research...everyone saying how comfortable the Thruxton is, and I absolutely love how they look....I'm sold, just need to sit on one to confirm.
I will keep the Corse, but technically now it will be my husbands since he is going to buy the Thruxton.
I really appreciate all the input, it really has helped.....alot!
