Well the Balius is nearly on the road and when it is I have a choice to make........ My Triumph Street Trip ain't seeing much use let alone it's engine potential and my recollection of my long departed ZXR 250 is one of a useable rev range of joy! Is it right to favour the little Balius over the Trip? I need to satisfy myself that it will produce as many grins as the ZXR did. So why hasn't the Trip left such an impression? Could it be the fact that opening it up full throttle would launch me somewhere into Central Europe rather than the lanes of Bristol ? Sitting at 4500 rpm on a Trip keeps you in 4th unless you wish to do 80 mph everywhere.......this must be the USP of the quarter litre multi pot machines. Rev your heart out and stay alive and within the law if you so desire. I just hope my test ride of the restored Balius lives up to my recollections of the ZXR. Min.
