    Lambretta GP 225 TS1, 35mm TMX Mikuni Franspeed Super Tourer

    "why ride a vespa when you can push a lambretta?"

    As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding; like the Roman, I seem to see "the River Tiber foaming with much blood."

    I don't think I could ever ride a bike without a fairing again - I found my 125 wayyyy too cold and that was a naked jobby. All my bikes since then have been half or fully faired!

    I wonder what GSA Adventures and Honda Varaderos are like at keeping the wind off?!

    This has been an interesting thread... you dont hear a lot of people admit how poor their naked bikes are when it gets cold . I suspect the adventure bikes are a little better with hand guards and tall screens but surely not as good as a sports tourer or a supersport where you are leaned over plus get help from the fairing in directing air around you.

    Possibly the only thread on CUK to get to 6 pages and not have a single bit about brex..... I'm not going to finish that word so as not to ruin it

    Not sure naked bikes look better. It seems to me riding a naked bike is like riding a bike naked. I prefer to do neither.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Anyone commute into London or any other town or city using a super sport like an R6/Blade etc?

    I am thinking of scratching that supersport itch early next year and just wondering how practical litre sport bikes are for the daily commute

    We have to be thankful to all those bikers providing organs to people who need them during sunny weekends. But stop ruining my weekends because every time one of you lays dead on the road I'm driving on and I can't recht my destination in time

    Try driving on the Links instead, they might stay alive longer.

    not very IMHO.
    they tend to be very uncomfortable and twitchy at low speeds.
    you'd be better with a second hand bandit /diversion/ whatever for commuting, and save the rice rocket for weekends.
