The best and the worst

Recommended Posts

Feel free to make your own list of stuff that you feel have its best and worst performers. Here is mine (for now):
Worst bike I've ridden: Tempo Corvette 50 in a horrible conditions, with Sachs engine and flat tyres. Gearbox had mostly neutrals.
Best bike I've ridden: Triumph 900 Sprint due to its all-day comfort and suspension that would iron out just about any- and everything.
Worst bike to launch from a standstill: Suzuki VS1400 Intruder. Extremely grabby clutch and shaft drive made every start a cluncky and lurching affaire.
Best bike to launch from a standstill: Kawasaki VN800A Vulcan. Perfect throttle response and superb clutch let it do 0-30 in an instant with no tricks or revving required.
Least fun bike to ride: See Tempo above, but speaking of a real bike it was the Z1300 DFI that earned this title.
Most fun bike to ride: Yamaha FZ-07. Never have a bike been pieced together by so many bits of plastic or been so reluctant to give access to its spark plugs. But the ENGINE!!!
Worst bike to work on: Closely challenged by the FZ-07, the dubious winner of this title is the Royal Enfield 700 Meteor
Best bike to work on: Suzuki A100. I have no fond memories of the thing, but it was simple to work on beyond belief.

Triumph has some good ass engineers, the seat even looks comfy.  BTW, pet that doggy for me!  ;)
