Slowly - Never thought I would buy a Honda
« on: 06 September, 2018, 10:58:28 AM »
Hi everyone. Picking a 2010 MKII tomorrow. Seems like a good all rounder bike, will have to commute to work every day rain or shine.
I'm originally Italian, became a Kiwi living many years in New Zealand and now I'm in France.

Not been as far as NZ, but France and Italy are great countries to ride in.  :028:

Thanks everyone. Starting to get a feel for the bike.
I love the torque and comfort and the quality of some finishes that Suzuki would never think of (I come from an SV650)

NZ is definitely a better riding country if you like endless empty roads full of corners with amazing scenery.
On the other hand Tarmac is non existent (they spray ashfalt on top of gravel, grip is awful) and you have to get used to rain.
