So, I am off to buy a new bike!
After a solid week of perusal and the laughable intent of a 10k budget I've ended up with two shining standouts that give me psychotically intense sensations of arousal culminating in tingles throughout my body when I see pictures of them.
- the ducati streetfighter / 848.
- the benelli TNT R160 / 1130.
To help me decide which one to ecstatically mount, I have a few rather open ended and potentially heat conducting questions so please bear with me.
Will I regret not getting the bigger bike of either model? I am not looking for flatstick hooliganism as I have a job to keep but...
Can I test ride these bikes somewhere?
Is Benelli's purchase by a chinese mob something to be cautious of?
What are the bikes' idiosyncrasies or perks that put them apart?
Is the Benelli a PITA to service/get parts for?
I can't trust youtube so which sounds better?
They all look amazing, the Ducati seems a little more authentic and sexual while the Benelli is all space-tech and appeals to the boy who loves transformers in me. They're similar in price, exotic and freakishly potent in their allure.
Please help. Thanks!
