For drool purposes, the daytona has my vote, If your using the bike every day for commuting etc, the hornet is much more comfortable, as well as more useable, but still has enough power to raise a smile.
Im going for the 250 as its cheaper to run, insure, tax etc then a 650, in a couple of years ill probably change up, after I get another few years no claims!
I just had a look at the Ninja after seeing my local ktm/kawisaki garage is selling a couple of 2011 models at clearance proce... £3799 but I bet I could get a bit more knocked off... only problem is insurance for me would be almost £3000 for those fully comp! Half that for the Hornet or Daytona... I am VERY confused :(
HOW MUCH TO INSURE!! :eek:
Im looking at £400 max for a 250, and £500-£600 for anything bigger!

It's horrible :( I dont know if it's just where i live... (which wouldnt make much sence anyway as i live in the countryside) but i always get high quotes... my 125 has cost me just over £1000 to insure this year! I spent DAYS shopping around and coulnt get anything better! It is kept in a secure brick garage overnight and has an alarm!

I have just seen that my Ninja 250 quote drops too around £900 for fully comp if i put in a years no claims but that's still high!

Fully comp is always going to be high until you've got a few years riding and no claims sorted.

I'm looking more and more like I'm not going to be able to make this. A rather large unexpected expenditure has appeared that's vital if I want to keep on vlogging, so I'll have to see what I
I can do.

Don't count me out completely though, you never know what can happen :)

Though I'm in the CMA, MAG and a bike club too, and tend to forget the hundred and one other things I'm supposed to be doing, I think I'm free. let you know nearer the day.

Ah that stinks mate! Hope you do find some super miracle glue to fix what's broke and be on your way! What is the vlogging related expenditure in question may I ask?

It's a long story, but the basics of it are that I bought a brand new camera and it had an accident before I even got to use it... So it comes down to whether I have enough money for another one or if I should just not bother.

Certainly is going ahead :)
I'm still not sure what we are doing after meeting, other than getting something to eat and introductions, I'm about to put something on Twitter to ask my followers!

It'll be great to have you along too, the more the merrier :D

I had a rather expensive somthing go wrong on me yesterday with relation to mild steel meeting salt despite regular cleaning and coating in protective fluids... of course im talking about my two stroke exhaust. Bad timing too as im due to do my mod 1 on friday...

I guess that what im trying to say is that due to unforeseen expenditure and despite the relative low cost of this trip... i might not be able to make it.

Thats a shame mate, I'd much rather you spend the money on your exhaust than come and make it worse!

Best of luck with your MOD1!

Must confess i had forgotten about this! BUT i managed to grab some extra work last Sunday which earnt me £25 aka enough money for fuel for a meet :) I'd love to come along for this, have we got any more detailed plans? Plus Bikermole, if you want to meet in Sudbury i know the back way via haverhill, might take a tad longer but is more 125 friendly lol

I have no idea whats happening after the meet, I'd only thought as far ahead as taking some pictures, and riding to get some lunch! :p
Curly, I plan to ride through Sudbury to get to cambridge, so I could probably meet you en route, say, at the swimming pool (I know where it is :))

You have to pay to park in there, the train station is next to it and is free, there would be better! What time are we thinking? i need to be home by 3 to get ready for work, so a morning meet would work better for me, don't know about those with distances to travel though!

At the moment were meeting at midday, and itll probably tak an hour to get from yours to milton, so you'd have a couple of hours with us, unless I can change the meet time to say, 10.30 or 11.00 so we would get more out of the day
