Tell us about it: “This is an early 2007 model , so it still has carbs and it’s bullet proof! I’ve used this every day to ride to work and it’s never missed a beat. It’s why I bought this one after the XJR1200 before. It handles great, and is just a brilliant all-rounder, especially with the fly-screen fitted. The only time I stop riding it is when the snow and ice build up really seriously – I just borrow a car for those few odd days a year.”
