Evening all, It's been a while since I last visited the site. Only because of selling my 2008 RR8 when my son came along (miss that bike!) However, I'm missing two wheels, and now find myself back in the hunt for a new bike, with 'Er indoors' permission lol. My criteria has changed and now a new bike, will need to commute me to work (41 miles) each way. My shortlist of bikes are of 3. 2019 Blade 2016 SP Or 2017 S1000R Sport. I haven't yet test driven any of these, due to Covid, but at 42 years old, will a blade hurt me on an infrequent commute into London, and have Honda ironed out their dreaded ABS faults/issues that have dogged the bike in recent times? Your thoughts are appreciated. Cheers. Wayne.
