    60 years and 10 months haha

    Body is stuffed

    Did my research over about a month, looking for a suitable bike. Also knowing my mates don't really like the bigger heavier bikes as much as they used to, as most of us have stuffed bodies these days haha + i have seen them man handling them when loaded on tour!

    After making my mind up I ordered a 2016 Yamaha MT-09 Tracer having never sat on or rode one, till the day i picked it up!

    There is so much on the net about these bikes i just new it was my next bike!

    This one will do me for many years VERY! happy with my purchase

    Only complaint! Gee it's hard to sit on the speed limit LOL!

    Cheers Chuck...........

    I get that it is tailored for the older rider, but I have had a lot of fun in the 2 years I have owned it. It still surprises me how agile and quick the bike is yet happily covers distance in comfort for me and my wife on a tour - best of everything
    Nothing better than buying a present for yourself,,, and you get what you want....

    Okay.. so here goes... i'm 24!

    Came from a Tuono... wanted to do some touring this year so the bike needed to be good for 700-800 odd mile days atleast, so needed to be comfy... still wanted something quick enough and light enough to have a play on a Sunday too.

    Tried a Tiger 1050 Sport... felt like a tank.. was about to give up and go back to something more traditionally sports tourer styled but test rode the Tracer and loved it. Couldnt believe how good the engine is and how agile it is.

    Never looked back yet!
