Pretty much just this one. Even when I was small these were boring.
Ah see, and that's where i'd have to disagree, i love my SV. It started out as an S, but after a few.. uh.. run-in's with the ground, it's a custom
I just can't get rid of that bike. The suspension sucks, but I can't get enough of that motor, so I fix the damn thing every time I break it. And spend money upgrading the suspension. At least now with handlebars it will be a much more comfortable bike. Can't take those sport ergo's, I'm not 23 anymore.
If only I could transplant that engine into.. say.. a Z1000 frame.
Try a Sachs Madass for a fun 125ccc.
Split traffic faster than anything I have ridden. And the build quality was so shit that the stand fell off when riding. That is not boring.
That's disappointing to hear about the build quality. I like the looks of the thing, I've wanted to give one a try since it came out but I have never actually seen one in person or in any shop I've ever been to.
To be fair it was a very early one. It had 12000kms at the time. I probably would still buy another its that fun. Not as my only transport of course
I had a 2 hour test ride on a 2004 VFR 800....what a boring ride...couldn't wait to get off that bike. Hated my 2010 C14..to heavy,to much heat,to buzzy..gave up on that bike after one season.(7,600 miles)
I rode a Breva-750 Once, there's a reason I took the 1200S over it-- It might be because I'm not as tuned to Guzzi as most of the other guys are but I found the Breva 750 to be a complete snooze fest, Then again I didn't have a chance to take it in the twisty so.
Yes, that was a bike that disappointed me too. I have a ZX11 and always believed the engines were basically the same except for the cams, carbs, etc. When a friend and I swapped bikes, I finally got to try his Connie. Where the hell did all that vibration come from? Mr 11 is almost electric smooth and the Concours felt like something was going to come apart. I guess the Concours either doesn't have the same balance shaft or it's not sized properly.
I agree. Had to sell my 2010 Concours after two seasons. Just couldn't stand the high frequency vibrations coming through the grips. And I tried everything! I don't think I will chance an in line four again.
Had to say for me it was my 2011 Vstrom 650, great bike, lots of great adventures on it, but it was the adventures that made it what it was. if you get down to it the bike is heavy, wide, and lacks any real wow factor.
the least exciting bike i ever rode was a honda transalp. i switched ride with a friend, he took my dr800. i like bikes that shake and rattle and that are loud. the TA is the complete opposite. the engine noise, the seating position and the power delivery made me feel like i´m operating a machine and not riding a bike. he hated my dr800.
Harley XR1200, Total let down, bubble was popped.
True that. But damn if I don't miss mine.
My wife's SV650S; I know I'm supposed to love it, but I would rather ride almost any other bike, which is odd as I love the naked SV.
The Ride for Trevor:
bmw dakar single, i couldn't believe how bad it was
I think it was a suzuki 125 cruiser I rode when I took my MSF safety course to get my motorcycle endorsement . Pin the throttle and I swear it slowed down .
During a Triumph demo day I got on a cruiser of some sort, either an America or maybe a Thunderbird, between rides on the Speed Triple and Daytona 675R. I don't think there was any way it could compare. Cruisers aren't my bag to begin with and this one was really s l o w.
Up there on the list would be a KTM SMT. I probably had too high of hopes for that one. It just seemed sterile and removed, too upright, too boring. The Superduke was a true blast, though, as was the Duke 690.
Whatever you do, don't ride a V-Strom... You will likely fall asleep.
