I initially intended to buy FJR1300 after the coe of my X9 is finished but almost 40k was already too much, so I thought NC750 was a very good value for money, maybe MT-09, but now, damn, I will probably end up with a 2nd hand CB400 or a Duke. Not bad machines but slightly downsized to what was earlier planned.
I normally checked these guys for pricing

Now this list just shows the magnitude of the disaster.

Thank you... I don't know how, and we just made it through 38 years.

Wow, prices have sure gone up. My other bike will last the duration of my time in Sg, thank goodness.

The FJ1300 would be a lovely machine. That and the ST1300 are bikes I'd like to try. Also the smaller tourers. I've found a place that rents the Tracer so will give that a try one day. But won't be buying in the Sg market.

Yes, ST1300, the Tracer and the Concours, my another favorite and far beyond my budget.
Could you please share, which place rents out Tracers?

Holy crap those prices are bad. I paid $25k for my Ducati Scrambler 16 months ago and thought that was bad.

They also sell ram mounts which is how I found them.

Oh, thanks, forgot about them. I actually rented a bike from them when mine was at the workshop after a cab hit me few years ago. Can recommend those guys.

Even so, the number of SG motorcyles > JB motorcycles. Other than for work purposes, can't possibly think of why would JB riders come to SG man. Food maybe?

Considering you have said absolutely nothing of merit since you have been on the board, it's no wonder it was overlooked as most just skim over your posts as all here know that your content doesn't help a single soul. :roll:
