    Default Been taken for a ride!!

    On this lol!! Stupidly fast, my friend lives off the beaten track down a private road and took me out for my very own, FREE, red letter (brown trouser!) experience.

    Attachment 4559

    It has been clocked strapped down on a rolling road at 202mph, but obviously its not possible to achieve that sort of speed on the road.

    Now I'm not a small lad at 14 stone and he's a few stone heavier, but in 4th it still lifts the front wheel when you flick the throttle.

    Absolutely loved it!! So much so that I didn't ask what model it was. All I know is it's a Yamaha! I spent the entire 20 min ride giggling like a school girl and grinned for about an hr after.

    I guess that the R1 logo by the footrest gives it away a little......

    Nice paint job, though - not to my own taste but nice.

    I kinda like the look of that, and I don't really "do" bikes.
