    TELL US ! WHY DID YOU PICK THE BIKE YOU NOW RIDE ?

    Post  shaunthesheep on Mon Nov 30, 2009 5:06 am

    if ya got 2 , tell why about em both

    i'll start then .

    picked me bike coz i liked the " style " ( all down too taste i know )

    liked the physical size as well , being a little on the " rotund " side , also i liked riding me mrs's bike ( firestorm ) love V-twins , like the grunt and all that , SO got shot of R1 bought Prilla , very satisfied ( although i dont seem to have as much " low in the rev-range " GRUNT as me 1st prilla ( 1999 ) nevertheless . its as faster then i'll ever need to go , or if honest , its more then i can handle . like the " feel " of it anawl , not so quick turning as me R1 BUT i like it .
    drawbacks . well , round town its dire , a little hard to get into neutral ( gorra be rolling) ( nothing wrong with it , other owners say the same )gets easier when been on a long ride though . ALSO clutch needs bleeding regular ( so they recon ( mine needs it , but i have done 8000 miles without a bleed )

    to re-cap

    looks ace
    lots of grunt
    large in stature
    lots of " feel " to it
    and makes ya look Sooooooo sexy on it

    minus;s
    crap round town
    hard to get into neutral
