Well the time has come to say cheerio to what has been an absolutely fantastic bike and a pleasure to own.

I know many of you have had many a woe with your bikes from numerous sprag clutches to dud batteries and everything in between. But I can honestly say, hand on heart mine has been an absolute gem and not missed a beat in nearly 3 years and 7500 miles.

Sure at first I thought I'd made an awful mistake, especially seeing as I couldn't test ride one before I signed on the dotted line. The fueling was iffy and the handling positively scary but a few map updates later and a fettle with the bouncy bits by someone who knows what they're doing and it was transformed.

The best bike I've owned so far

And so on to the next chapter..................

Ackers, have fun with your old man's bike. We are going to miss you. The Stradale topic is a bit quiet so i guess we'll be seeing you around.

Have fun with your new bike.
I for sure like it, at least the old man in me.

It's not how old you are, it's how you ride it that counts

No ridden the Rivale a few times though, loved it's mental supermoto attitude just a bit too focused and impractical so figure the Stradale will be the best of both worlds.

Looking for something I can hoon around with my mates on on a Sunday morning and then click the panniers on take a few bits a bobs and take my gf on the back for the day and you know what, it may be my age but sometimes it's not just about hunting the apex and riding everywhere at ten tenths. Looking forward to its arrival

Not a popular bike here in the UK and so got it for a great deal.

Im currently riding the Stradale as a courtesy bike (without Panniers)

Great little machine, quit modest until you crack the throttle open and hear the lovely intake. I've been on her for about a month now. Getting my Draggy back tomo, will miss her, but not as much as im missing my Draggy
