The Ninja 1000 looks great on paper, but I've yet to read anything good (or bad) about it. Seems to leave a lot of people "meh."

Cheers,

1/13 Rider Mag has a test. It aint a triple but a Trophy isn't either. Just sayin Triumph has moved from sport/touring to touring/sport. Light is good in sport/touring. My next might be a Street Trip R with soft bags if i can' t find hard bags.

I think I get what you're saying there, but the new Trophy is, in fact, a triple. A giant battleship of a triple, but still a triple.

I'm still hoping for a Street ST or something like that; a sport/touring machine based on the 675 or (more likely) 800 motor. Not that a new bike is in the budget any time soon, alas.

Cheers,
