My motto is 'Ride what makes you feel good not what makes your mates feel good'.

I had one of the first ballistic, unrestricted Suzuki Hayabusas when all around me said it was 'too ugly' - boy did I love riding that bike!
I bought a 999S Ducati superbike when all around me said 'it'll stop when it rains/the cam belts will break etc etc' - boy do I love riding this bike. Still have it
I bought a Triumph Thunderbird 1600, when all around me said 'but it's a cruiser for God's sake and not even a Harley!' - boy do I love riding this bike. Still have it.
I restored a '50s BSA Rocket Gold Star when all around me said 'it's a heap of old junk/they break down/are too slow etc etc' - boy do I love riding this bike. Still have it.

See the pattern?
