Not new but returning.

History: I bought a 600 mile old bike but got rid of it after about a year. Just could get it round corners. Everyone told me how good they were, but mine needed a whole load of pressure on the inside bar to lean and I kept going wide. I loved the bike but started finding it dangerous. Test road a GSA1250 and it was so easy to corner, so swapped it in.

Now: I loved riding the GSA but couldn’t love the bike. My dealers set up a Euro3, Euro4 and a new Euro5 to try, and they were all fine. No idea why my first one didn’t work, I tried al sorts of ESA setting, dropping the forks, tyre pressures and all. All I can think of was a bad tyre or the OE Pirelli’s didn’t suit me? So to cut a story short, I am lining up a Triple Black and should have it in a few weeks time  :152:

It was a tire issue! Put some decent sport tires on like S22, power 5 or M9RR and it becomes light turning.
