Good ride today!
« on: 24 September 2020, 10:42:25 pm »
Nice 150 miles round the Peaks again  (before the rain came!) Out with a guy I met a few weeks back, who rides a 1986 BMW K75. He was very interested in the Faz, so let him try it, he loved it, said way lighter and flickable than his Beemer. I got to try the K75. Fuck me! weighs a ton! ride wise, gotta say, worst handling bike I ever rode, and Ive been riding over 50 years! Front felt real heavy, absolutely no feel at all from front wheel, felt like it had a mind of its own, and when over taking, if you crossed a white line shook its head!  Interesting experience - but thanks but no thanks! Also had the weird BMW indicators, left one for left, right one for right and press up to cancel.

I took a K75 out for a test ride when they first came out. The only test bike I ever took back before completing the route. It made me appreciate the CX500 I had at the time :)
