My next Litre Bike
So, I've been toying with the idea of getting another bike for trackdays and canyon riding to offset the mileage I've been gaining on the 899. I've been looking at the RSV4 and S1000RR longingly in a way normally associated with leering old men in a strip club. Now that the new R1 is out, that's entered my shortlist as well.
So, for my own entertainment (and possible prodding) I'm conducting my own little poll here to help me decide on the next bike (along with some testing of course). You can vote for more than 1 bike.
I'm also interested in hearing from owners of these bikes what their experience has been on the track, on backroads, and with maintenance rituals and costs.
