Well hello. Well I've had a little look around so thought I should say hi :D
Just before Christmas I traded in my 1098s for the 899:) weather has been pants so only managed 265 miles so far :( I'm desperate to get 600 so I can get the term is fitted and a couple of other bits.

Bring on some dry roads :)

Hi Ballbagracer,

A very warm welcome to the forum:). Even i am ready for some good warm weather:D.

how do you compare your new ride with the older 1098s??

Cheers,
CJ.

The biggest difference is the low down punch that I had with the 1098. That was a major grin factor but at times a bit of a handful lol the delivery of power in the 899 is so much smoother/linear. I haven't pushed hard yet but think it will be a bundle of laughs it feels more agile. I had considered the 1199 but 195 bhp phew!! I am sure this will be everything I need ;-)
