New bike!

Post by Westbeef » Wed Feb 19, 2020 8:43 am

Some of you know, my CBR was stolen recently and my hand was forced to come away from sportsbikes due to the insurance premiums. My budget was also pretty low for the new bike so I was expecting to be riding a bit of a shed round for a year or two. However I found this gem, in budget and it's immaculate. Now it isn't a CBR but it's certianly a great bike 8-)

4.

The last owner had it 18 years and most of it has been stripped and repainted and meticulously cleaned on a regular basis. I have a mutual friend of the previous owner so know it's history well.

I spy a lot of non standard upgrades on that bike... It's always nice to get them and have a previous owner the one to pay full price.
A wonderful thing is work, I could watch it all day.

I bought one of them new in 2002. I'd like to hope that, if I had kept it, it would look as good as that.

The only modifications I made to mine was to connect the second dipped beam through a relay so that I could have both on instead of the standard one.

I took it on a track day - brilliant brakes, good handling, could have used another few horsepower. Rode it to Imola and back (WSBK Bayliss v Edwards) and it was comfortable, quick enough (130 mph max) and had a good range when ridden at sensible speeds.

A super bike ! :D

im thinking of an xj 600n one that isnt too shiny to play with in the cave, will have to bend my mates ear as he is a bike mechanic and buys and sells a few bikes
