Mak­ing a small point

Motorcycle News (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

Fol­low­ing your con­clu­sion that the Du­cati 959 is more fun for less cash than its big­ger brother, I was re­minded of my own re­cent mo­tor­cy­cling his­tory. Like all of us bike ad­dicts, I have nat­u­rally climbed to the top of the ca­pac­ity, speed and power lad­der in search of the per­fect road bike. In my ma­tur­ing years (now 53 of them), I find my­self climb­ing back down the lad­der and hav­ing a lot more fun. My 1000cc Fire­blade was swapped for a Tri­umph 675 Day­tona. I went to test ride a 1050 Speed and bought a 675 Street. The trial of the 1200 Mon­ster was bet­tered by the 821 ver­sion which proved more fun, more of the time. All these bikes have brought more of a grin than their larger coun­ter­parts. Paul Clark, email
