Great bike? Maybe... all of my European friends who have ridden it have declared (and I quote) "one of the worst bikes ever." MCN seems to agree:

Owners love their Yamaha BT1100 Bulldogs. Everyone else hates em. Depending on your point of view the Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog is either a relaxing, better-braked alternative to a cruiser, rather like a Japanese version of a Moto Guzzi Breva (that wont break down), or its an ill-handling, gutless chump of a thing that would sooner dump you on your backside than take a right-hander with any kind of vigour.

Read the comments under that MCN review.

Or any other review.

The value of those bikes on the used market (at least here) has
gone up in the past years.

True, I have a friend that had one and said the bloody thing was always trying to kill him it handled so bad. And that was in a straight line .

i can't blame you on the color issue, not one bit.

I want that 1100 Honda, red & white, with the Mugen quarter fairing. So far only home market & Oz/Nz.

The euro cb1300 Bol 'd Or also red/white, would do almost as well.

My back would hate me, my neck probably won't let me look up enough to see and my knees and hip would throw tantrums. But it sure is sexy.



Did I mention Ferrari helped design the engine?

I really want the NTX I ordered several months ago. I sold my 08 GSA a few days ago and there's a hole in my garage that needs filling right now. I really thought I'd always keep that bike.....I'm such a fickle bike whore.

Ever since I started riding (about 4.5 years ago) I have loved the way the Kawasaki Z1000 looks. Especially the newer generation. Today I went by the Kawi place to get some bolts that I needed to replace on my ex500. After spending the 2 dollars on what I needed, I happened to notice they have a Z1000... If I was ok with being divorced and only seeing the kids every other weekend, I would probably have bought it. "Like a glove" is how it felt. Seat is a little stiff, but I have seen very few bikes that actually had a good seat from the production floor. Oh to dream. I can't afford the price tag on what would ultimately be a luxury item.

It looked like this:
