Up until about 2 years ago I had a Yamaha YZF-R1... Loved it to bits, but sold it as the insurance was a joke when we lived in Liverpool, even though it was garaged...

Now that we have moved, and I now have a motor traders policy which gives blanket comp cover for anything "the property of, or in my custody or control" and incl cars, bikes and commercials... I am sorely tempted to get another... Esp as I borrowed a friends R1 yesterdayfor the day, and well and truly blew away the cobwebs...

Itching to have a run on a Fazer 1000 now.... Getting too old for supersports, too uncomfortable in town..

Go for it I have had bikes since the 60's and would not be without one, they spell freedom, to me at least, the Clio is cheaper to run by quite a way, tax is half that of the bike and it does more MPG, and tyres last 10 times as long but hell it leans the wrong way in corners.

Who would have a vehicle that falls over when you stop?
