looking over the site there seems to be a lot of chat about which is the best bike to own, ST4R/999/998/916SPS/748,9/888/SP/SPS/
surely in an ideal world we'd have one of each,theres nothing fundementaly wrong with any of them.
to me personally they just get more sanitized as you head towards the new bikes.
i was fortunte to try my 888 back to back against a mates 748 and anothers 749,
i must admit the 749 was like riding a 250 size wise it handled superb,but neither had that brutish involvment that i get from the 888.
it doesnt make me better rider i just get more fun trying to tame it,if i wanted a fast easy life i'd get a FireBlade!!!!
its like Beemers would you buy a brand new sanitized M3 or the original LHD M3 EVO with less power but more driver input.
everyones taste is different which why this web site is visited so often.
