Got a big boys bike now !

#1 Post by Leejitsu » Tue Aug 13, 2019 3:43 pm

Hey all waited until I got myself a big boys bike before joining any forums ! Even though I've had bikes all my life !

So here I am saying hi and hoping to pick lots of brains !

Now, some pics of the bike(s)? :o :D
Or is a Triumph sprint RS Kawasaki ZZR1400 a frankenbike you've bolted together!?

I've always had bikes but this zzr is something else ... something I definitely need some advise with !
So joined to pick brains on how to best set up the suspension to my weight, riding style etc and any other must haves, does or don'ts πŸ‘

I would say Triumph Sprint RS is a big boys bike :P but Kawasaki ZZR1400 :shock: is something else.

The triumph is a lovely safe bike to ride, it's super predictable and having had a nice A16 can and remap on the dyno it's rather lively now !
I can't see me parting with it just yet, it's been on a massive journey the last 3 years and is practically a brand new bike now with thousands spent on it .... I definitely would never get the money back so would rather have it as an expensive ornament πŸ˜‚ but with a growing son now 12years old but 5ft10 and 11st I needed that bigger bike to take him out on πŸ‘
