Got a test ride booked for saturday at Padgetts

Jacko - i've got a knackered shoulder from an accident years ago, some days it's ok and some i can hardly move it (shoulder was shattered in a RTA).
Riding the STR was ok as no weight was put on it but last week on the RR i felt the strain, not too bad on a short run but painful after a few hours riding  Crying or Very sad  - thought it'd be ok but not too sure?
If the MT isn't that cracky i'll put up with the pain on the RR for this summer

Check out this month's Ride magazine for reviews on both 09 and 07.

Cheers - i'll pick up a copy tommorow

I was thinking the MT-07 as for £5200 i can get a brand new 1, looking at similar bikes for £5k i'll be getting a 2 year old where the warranty has run out

Been offered £3800 - £4000 for the CBR which is what i paid so i haven't lost out - just wondering how much the MT would be worth after a year  Rolling Eyes

Looks like a proper budget built bike to me, standard forks this day and age, still think there's a lot better for that money at a year or two years old, don't forget thing don't break these days...

Well the write ups seem to praise it saying it'll pop the wheel in 2nd with just a slight bit of gas so it sounds fun.
The 2 main problems are
1. not available in black? would be best colour i think
2. the dash clocks look weird - too digital

I'll have a look/ ride on sat if the weathers ok - can't be bothered if it's peeing it down  Rolling Eyes

Have a look at MT09 first though. Both bikes built down to a price and you can tell. Only 74bhp on the MT-07, don't know if I could live with that for only bike.

£5k would get you a very decent Aprilia Tuono, and as Dorsoduro rider with a big grin I can recommend this bike also.

One of the main critisisms of the MT-09 has been the basic suspension, suspect it will be the same with the MT-07 once the full tests are in. Not dissing the bikes totally but for £5k there are some brilliant bikes you can buy.

Well had a call today from a dealer and RR is now sold  Shocked - didn't expect that so quick? it's being picked up tommorow so a replacement is needed in the next few weeks before the good weather starts.
I'll be looking at other nakeds as well as the MT - should have kept the Triumph  Crying or Very sad
