Then I was at home today and a fine day in Cape Town it was, I set out this morning to go and look at what else is out there, Superbikes only with the possibility I would maybe get a new bike for 2018.

Well, boys (and girls) here is my story and as we say beauty is in the eye the holder.

I went and looked at a high end Fireblade with The suspension and all the toys, my god the Honda is really not pretty (sorry if Im annoying Honda owners)
Then I toodled off to Yamaha and well was told that 2018 has no new R1 M spec and its the same as the 2016 bike, in fact I was offered a 2016 Yamie?
The I went to Susuki, its also fugly IMO unless you like bikes that advertise other products on the plastics...
Finally I went to Kawasaki and again the bike is like a lot of shapes one would expect to find in a transformers movie, so again in my opinion not nearly as pretty as the 1299, I accept that some of the Jap bike have similar performance and may even be more powerful, and may i say it yes they are possibly more reliable?

However I put my pride in my pocket threw my leg over my 1299 and went home thinking this is still the Taylor Swift of the bikes,just my opinion, and I am going to live with her period and bad mood from time to time but for me coming from Jap and now to the 1299 I just cant see me replacing the 1299 with a jap offering and will hang on and see what the V4 brings to the table and if I can afford it I may take the plunge.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions
Well said Greg
Thanks from Captain Greg

Perhaps a good tea-bagging is in order to solve the issue...

I've heard that helicopter basic flight control and understanding is immensely accelerated after a proper tea-bagging session
