Took the plunge

Wife been complaining about comfort on my bikes a while now so I took the plunge today to add my 2010 f4 to my collection of track only bikes and bought a 2015 1090rr on the cheap (10,000Ä, 250 km...).

Pick her up this weekend!

Beautiful bike!....Jochen (Cherche) had one the same...unfortunately he wrote it off on the track

Here's his bike along with him and myself when we met up in Lake Garda in Italy.

Congratulations!!

nice.

For me, the motivation is twofold - 1. i was getting tired of swapping my F4 from road to track each time i wanted to play (or if i just didn't want to use my daytona) and 2. my wife complains waaaay too much when she has to climb on the back of a sportsbike.

Congratulations. Lovely looking bike. Definitely more suited to street riding than the F4, although I'm not too sure about pillion comfort. She'll just have to hold on tight!!!!
