Default A new member from italy

Let me briefly introduce myself.
I am a middle-aged father of two and owner of two bikes.
I live in the north of Italy.

I have a '94 CBR600F2 for a bit more than a year now and a '96 TRX850 for almost 6 years.
I ride solo and mostly for pleasure on short trips (no overnight stays allowed) with two, maybe three, track days per year where I am always the slowest, but still happy at the end of the day.

I plan to let the TRX go at the earliest opportunity (after bringing the CBR to the racetrack I can't use the TRX there anymore because of the lack of feeling in comparison!) and replace it with a modern bike.
I plan to keep the CBR mostly for the track but still street legal.

Hi Mullasci, welcome to the forum, glad your enjoying the CBR.

So what modern bike do you have in mind to replace the TRX850?

I'm thinking of getting a duke 790.
The local dealer doesn't have one to test drive yet but the static position on the seat seems a good fit for my body size.
Apart from missing any fairing it seems to be better in every possible area when compared to the TRX: safer, lighter, nimbler, more power, less vibrations.

The MT09 seemed an option too, but the engine on the right side conflicts with my leg.

In any case the TRX has to go first.
