Nice, I didn't' come across many F reviews when I was shopping for mine. This one in particular for the naked I did enjoy watching.

It's certainly nice to here great reviews from experienced riders (like ourselves) extol the virtues of the bike we know and love.

I've been reviewing the old Video's as last week the 2017 DL1000 found a new Owner and my Bank balance looks a bit more healthier.
2/3's of a new F in cash is a temping amount towards a big brother to the 750 or a indeed new 1000 Naked again.

My amalgam of the reviews seems to be on the F "Save your money and get a Naked as the screen and bodywork is no better than the Naked".
Over the years here there have been a few complaints posted on the screen.
The 750 at today's 2800 KM, is now really fulfilling what I wanted from it, so I am not going towards a 1000 at this time.
A 2019 Honda CB500XA mmmmm- Learner power at 35KW !

Hey Slower, congrats on getting your DL sold! That is a great feeling. Money in the bank and one less bike to be watching over. I still think you should sell the 750, get a naked GSX-S1000, put a tall 'fly-screen' on it, a Wilbers shock and call it good. POWER is fun. Live the dream! (PS - definitely not dogging the 750...please don't take it that way. The 750s are lighter and lighter can be 'righter' )

Everywhere I go:

Quote:

"Whoa! That's a Gixxer... with bags! I haven't seen anyone do that in years!"

"Whoa! That's not a touring bike! Looks like a lot of fun!"

"That is a gorgeous/pretty bike!"

"What IS that?!"

"I was going to buy [insert just about any bike here] but I'm going look at one of these instead."

"Can I see your license and registration, please?"
I don't know what it all means, but I'm quite sure I bought an interesting bike.

Ha Lost, good stuff, though I try to avoid talking to people. The last guy on your list is kind of hard to ignore.

Yes Froggy, that upgrade has not gone unthought by me.
The 750 won't get money spent on it's flaw's. That's the attraction. I accept it as it is.
It rides the road a lot better if you cane it hard like a track bike. Engine, transmission, suspension all seem to come together then.
Suspension at the rear simply cannot cope with high frequency hits and packs down with compression and rebound too hard.
It fit's its scope of 'Owning the Racetrack'. One freshly resurfaced like the MotoGP at Silverstone though.

It's got till 1st October ( 4 weeks away) on it's current road taxes before I have to renew that, so that coming timestamp may trigger a change now decision.
The latest Honda CBR500R in all White trim really fit's me as a dead slow sports bike junkie, but in conjunction with what ?
(We in Australia missed out on a White GSX-S1000 Naked . Otherwise my 750 would have been another 1000 in White rather than my 750 in Blue).

The 750 riding triangle seem's close to the CBR500R, but the 750 has twice the power and now that it has loosened up a lot, it's more like my past K9 GSX-R 750 in the lower down half rev range.

The Scrambler 1100 Sport is expensive (Ohlins both ends), and could be too perfect for me. I don't want perfect 'transport'.
It's torque pull is more than the GSX-S1000 down low, and a match towards the top side.
It's roughly the same shape, size, seat height as the GSX-S1000 and both feel's just 'right size and weight'. The 750 feel's 3/4 physically of the GSX-S1000, and a SV650 half.

If something happen's in 4 weeks, I'll post back, but I think the 750 will go the normal 1 year tenure anyway but could have a non GSX-S1000 Mate.
It certainly won't be a more emissioned 1000 like the new Katana M0 got saddled with - it would be the current Euro 4 AL9 version !!!
