I find myself looking at ZX10s on gumtree after having ridden a friends ZX14 on that sweeping road between Napier and Bredasdorp.

Endless long sweeps. Did those flat-out, throttle to the stops, in the 80's on a BMW R80RT.

For 6months solid.

It was on a Beemer. Between assist trailers, parts downtime, recalls and big-ends, 6 months goes like a weekend. :3some:

The road between Napier and Caledon is lekker  .
Someone mentioned the 1050 Sprit earlier , that is a very good sports tourer , perhaps a bit older but the last of the Daytona 955ís were magical bikes . And then the Honda VFR range canít be faulted .
