    Ben Fortt. He's doing some Hottrax races and then going to Superstock 1000.

    I think I've got enough with 2 bikes for now! I know someone who is after a bike though so I'll let them know :)

    another biker here,my current steed is a suzuki gsxr 1000 zk4 with a few mods thaqt make it a little different.the bike is absolutely minted and loads of fun.

    i like to ride like a complete loon and did numerous track days to calm myself down but it didn't work at all,quite the opposite.i ended up binning it at knockhill with a rather silly incident and broke my arm badly.......but its all good again.sadly i'll be selling this bike come april time but i'll be back on 2 wheels again in 3 or 4 years with hopefully something newer and more powerful.

    the mods are

    k5 swingarm
    k8 slipper clutch
    320mm brake upgrade using cbr1000 calipers and discs(wavy front and rear)
    k7 gsxr600 m/c
    harris rearsets
    yoshi 25th anniversary end can
    stomp grips
    atre digi gear indicator
    healtech speedo healer with top speed recall
    ohlin fork internals
    fabbri double bubble tinted screen
    bex moto crash protection

    thats all i can think of at the moment,the bike is running 154 rwhp and if i were keeping her i'd fit a quickshifter just to make upshifting easier whilst pulling big mono's......this bike wheelies for fun.

    i think next time round i'll go for a k5.

    Here it is on my test ride with my mates Speed Triple:

    Has a full Arrow exhaust, sounds fantastic with the baffle out. Can't wait to pick it up! :)

    Heres me on my 05 Triumph Sprint ST1050 on my very first track day at Snetterton last year, not the quickest bike there but I had a brilliant day.

    Also shown is my Sprint with my Sons Daytona 675, a great little bike.

    Recently sold my beloved ZZR1100D7 for a BMW R1200RT for the long tour this year.
    But I am peeking over the wall at a ZZR1400 at the moment.

    I'm getting older and fatter, so while I miss the performance of my ZX9R and the sheer hoot of the DRZ400, I now ride around on this:

    I'm not afraid to get caught out in the rain...this isn't a "garage queen" in that sense, although when it gets dirty I end up spending a few hours on an OCD cleaning session :) ...

    That's a great looking cruiser.
    I had a DRZ400S for a good while too, a lot of fun was had on it.

    hi all, im not so much of a biker being only 20 my biking came to and abrupt end when I was 17, woman in a red focus pulled out infront of me, as because I was so close to her (about 10 feet) I had nothing else to do but hit her... I hit the driver door but instead of being thrown over the car my head hit the roof and my body smashed her window, then I hit the ground. was in hospital for 14 nights, broke my leg mm's below my knee joint, dislocated my knee and shattered my collar bone, but due to the injurys sitting on a bike for any longer than 20mins is absolute agony on my knee and I struggle to walk afterwords.... so what I have got to ride around for a little bit of fun (to the shops and back kinda thing) is a little 250cc road legal Chinese piece of **** quad, lol[​IMG][​IMG]

    DRZ ;) Nice.

    Going to get my license next year I think and get one or a Yamaha YZF (I think that's it) 450 equivalent. My mate has a 636 Ninja and is getting an RSVR soon, but I just don't think that they can be enjoyed on the road compared to a supermoto type thing. In my opinion, of course.

    Passed my full test in January (just before the regulations came in) and been meaning to get a bike all summer. Bit late in the year now but I finally sold my CBR125 yesterday after buying this as my first big bike on Saturday. 11k on the clock, FDSH and also Datatool alarm and immobiliser. Couldn't contemplate how fast it is, but taking it easy for now as I've not got that much experience under my belt and still need to build my confidence with the bike (leaning and cornering etc.).

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Have bought some uprated bulbs for it so far and got a few bits and bobs to change such as the exhaust and crash bobbins in the future. Anybody know where I can source the alarm/immobiliser certificate from. The dealer mentioned getting it online but forgot to ask him to print it off in all the excitement. Might give them a call today and ask them to forward me it. Also, looking for a smaller rectangular numberplate (two lines of digits as I hear this is a legal requirement). If anybody knows where would be good to start I would appreciate it.

    First bike,

    [​IMG]

    Then this,

    [​IMG]

    Then this for winter,

    [​IMG]

    ZX6 went and replaced by this with a plan in mind,

    [​IMG]

    Several ££s later the plan came reality,

    [​IMG]

    And the latest, fancied something totally different to previous bikes plus it was cheap.
