Streetfighter 1098 test ride

... and is still on an Irish plate. As with all test rides i took it a bit leisurely to start. the traffic round the dealers was chaotic due to some road works but did give a feel for just how manageable the bike is. Its easy to filter through traffic. Easier than the Multi as its so slender. one ...

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

And who’s definition of “grown up” is he using??

My definition is getting a big boy job and being able to afford a nice bike (lol)

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Re: What do you want to vent about today?

... a very smart man & realised what was happening to him & that he was losing it, and losing it quite quickly. So he pulled himself off the road (or maybe his doctor did & he forgot!??)....either way, he got it sorted.

Panigale V4 to race at Macau.

First road race for the v4. My guess is we may see at least one at the TT next year.

Re: Kwacky's ongoing Africa Twin Adventure Sport review

Nah, me testing the bike out. Not far from home there's a big straight on a quiet country road so I put the bike through the gears then near the end slammed on the brakes to see how quickly it can stop.

Re: What are you eating ??

Been out for a McDonalds. My boss is out so I took my 2 colleagues out. It's pissing it down and McD is just down the road.

It was edible. I do like their milkshakes.

Sorely tempted to run the bike into a mainly track bike with daytime MOT.
