Back in Feb I passed my Mod 2 & it was just over a month before I purchased a bike. Well after endless searching & looking I eventually got out to vie some bikes, I wanted something suitable for a passenger NO SPORTSBIKES.......... a Tourer A Pan Europeean was my choice but after spending some time looking at one I decided it was too heavy, too big & decided to look for alternatives. I soon settled on the Yamaha FZ6 S2 (Fazer) but it was just too much ££££ however once I realised I could pick up a bike with ABS the search was on...... A trip to Budget Bike in Swindon was on & there was a huge choice complete with a fantastic deal on the day for a FZ6 S2 but I just couldn't stretch enough to bite the bullet. The next day we went to Coventry to look at a One Owner Suzuki with ABS & a deal was done. 1x Suzuki GSF 650 SA Bandit K7 delivered for £2050.00 & the Learing Really started............. Well ive started learning the real method of Countersteering & watched a fantastic video Twist of the Wrist II that fully explains cornering, I have good days & I have bad days, one day it all gels & the other I probably look like a complete twat that should not hold a licence to ride. I think I am only just starting to get the hang of it but I have no intention of Filtering unless absolutely necessary or speeding infact the fastest I have gone was almost 80 by accident honest. Aerodynamics : I wish this was something that was explained to me as I passed my test on a naked & went out & bought a faired motorcycle for some protection at speed however it has turned out to be an absolute night mare as the aerodynamics of the motorcycle combined with some weight loss around the face have played absolute havoc with my helmet. The result is the wind is being forced to my neck & up into my helmet & thus my ears have suffered. Oh how I wish I had known about this.......... Well I love the bike mostly its not fuel injected so I have had to adapt & learn some more & slow riding is an absolute art with a bike that has carbs & an after-market exhaust. But the main issue is the wind noise. So at the beginning of the week I ordered a Vstream screen & am currently waiting for delivery & today after trying to stuff all-sorts into my helmet I decided to go & just look n try on some new helmets, well after a visit to my local shop to look but not buy I walked out with a new Schurbeg C3 Pro the quietest helmet in the world just dont ask how much..................................... I am looking forward to the ride to work in the morning.
