    Default Motorbikes....

    Well the year has been good so far and finding a few pennies spare for a new toy.... So this is gonna be the year of the motorbike!!! Getting back on after 2 years off and it's time for a Hayabusa I think.. Especially after test ride today.... Phwoar!!!

    Anyone know of anywhere to get these cheap at trade prices? Not bothered about mileage or huge on condition just want the speed kicks again!

    Previously owned a Yammy R6 and R1. Lets just say I have got fat since I last got on them and it was a struggle when I owned them so they are out of the picture!!

    Any hints or tips appreciated

    I do Mark, I had the 'off' 3 years ago at 170mph+.... Ouch...

    By fat means 6ft 5in and 16 stone mate, just not as slim as I was lol. Had a blackbird on hire for a weekend and nice bike in a straight line....

    Was also considering ZX9R?

    At 6 5" you're allowed to be 16 stone

    ZX9 very nice if you must have a sportsbike

    Blackbirds handle better round the twisties with a few mods, the Blackbird forum is pretty useful for tips

    ZX9R mmmm im a sucker for kwacks , the noise they make on full throttle is just intoxicating
    my old ZX6R


    The thunderace that replaced it


    and then i got the fazer due to neck problems ,

    But if you must travel at light speed there is only one way to go and its not by eyeabuser ....
    i can get my mits on this if i need to


    quite frankly a jaw droppingly astounding bike if you need to pop to the shops and dont have much time
