Which big sin­gles float our boats?

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Welcome -

Jim Moore Ed­i­tor

I love big sin­gles. Pure, sim­ple, light and fun. I con­tinue to lust af­ter a Gil­era Saturno 500. They han­dle like a 250, yet drive out of turns like a rut­ting stag. That would make me very happy in­deed. [email protected] prac­ti­cal­sports­bikesmag.co.uk

Damian Smith Art Ed­i­tor

Fun­nily enough I’m on the look­out for a big sin­gle at the mo­ment – a trail thumper that I can ride to work and do a bit of green lan­ing on at the week­end. Top of the list is a Honda XR400. [email protected] prac­ti­cal­sports­bikesmag.co.uk

Mark Gra­ham Pro­duc­tion Ed­i­tor

Plenty of stuff to like here; early KTM Duke, Yam TT500, but I’m a mas­sive fan of the early Honda XL500 with the 23-inch front wheel. Rare, but find­able. New front tyre would be a chal­lenge. mark.gra­[email protected] prac­ti­cal­sports­bikesmag.co.uk

Alan See­ley Tech­ni­cal Ed­i­tor

Honda once showed a con­cept ver­sion of their Dom­i­na­tor as a sports­bike with an un­der­slung rear shock. I’d find a crashed Domi and try to build, the same, or at least sim­i­lar. alan.see­[email protected] prac­ti­cal­sports­bikesmag.co.uk

Gary Hurd Tech­ni­cal Con­sul­tant

I’m a big unit, even af­ter shed­ding the weight of a large child, so I’ve al­ways needed four cylin­ders to pull me along. Most sin­gles are too phys­i­cally small for me to, so it’d have to be a DR Big for me. psports­[email protected]­me­dia. co.uk
