I bought a museum quality 900SS 1991 model with history and thrash the hell out of it the way it was meant to be rode. Yeah, FCR's are on it now and there are no regrets. In 16 months I have 5 trackdays and 10,000 miles of sex with my leathers on. This is what the SuperSport was for, not some living room decoration or some punters investment oppty.
Your opinion may vary of course, which I would respect only once you take on a track day with me. But you would have to take the bike off the coffee table to do that, wouldn't you?
Maybe this was a bit over the top - my apologies OP and others on this thread.
But sure, if you have the witherall to hold pristine examples of significant bikes that are never ridden - fine. It's like art at the Louvre. But, I gotta know you have others you ride otherwise I feel you are cheating the world of riders that can really enjoy the bike. I dunno, but maybe governments going to outlaw combustion engines in my lifetime and I say throw your leg across it while you still can. I mean, I cannot ride my SuperSport in Paris to visit the Louvre with a hot French girl now, it is illegal and this is only the start of similar laws. Realistically, I think my bike could be impounded in California today, and this is a factor in planning my trip to see friends in Humboldt. // end rant//
