Gotta say been very impressed with the FJR1300 I bought a while back for SFA. Excellent fuel economy, handle decent once on the move, been made for ever it seems. Don't miss the 6th gear even the stock seat isn't bad on them. Hard Cases included

Would a black 2009 CBF1000GT 19500mls on the clock be off interest ?

FZS 1000 is bulletproof. Great tourer/commuter & economical to run

I'm looking at a gen2 CBF1000, had the earlier one and a few other bikes in between and fancy another.
I also had a Ducati ST3, which was an excellent bike, very reliable and light, around 200kg. So its modest power and vee twin torque felt like a lot more. Very comfortable also.

For something even more off piste... https://www.donedeal.ie/motorbikes-f...miles/17447181

Not saying no, but still having a good think...
stuck on the idea of a VFR 800 at the min .... for about ten mins, No rush and up to 90 so I'll hold any notions for a week or two.
FJR, Bird .. might be a bit on the bigger heavier side, but frankly.. no solid idea yet.
