that's really nice, my sort of ride...
Added a new toy to the stable last month. MT-10, love it to bits!
@Evotion thanks! To be honest my long term plan is to keep the Suzuki and run it for another 1-2 years then get a new shape (2018) R6 track bike, so not worth spending time or money on it just now.
The MT-10 is so many bikes rolled into 1, I can use it on my commute and it will be docile as you like or take it out for a weekend blast and even go touring on it (european tour is in the pipeline at some point). Even has cruise control which is a nice touch, especially if on a long motorway run.
Only downside is you only get about 120 miles to the tank.
Liking the SP1 though!!
Very nice Mario. You now need to either paint the Zuki in that lime greeen to match Yamaha or vice verca
I love the livery on the MT-10,. Always liked it since I saw it on the MT-07 a few years back.
As it happens, just started looking for a new bike. Was at Triumph today and the new Speed Triple 1050 RS looks pretty damn good, lots of electrickery. I need to go out on a few bikes as not ridden propoerly for a couple of years now.
I will try the MT-10 but might be too frenetically fast for me. I will def go on out on the MT-09 SP though.
Also looking at a Tuono Factory, an S1000R and the Z1000.
I will ride them all and add my thoughts on https://www.youtube.com/c/whichbike_com
Got the Speed Triple RS ride on Saturday morning for a couple of hours.
There is this SP-1 in my garage.. not been used for 2 years. Battery dead of course.
My foray into moto x didnt last to longa few of my earlier bikes....
Honda CR250 (red rocket) great bike and so fast...bonkers sometimes , then downgraded ..lol to the newer waterpumper version with pro link suspension....good but not as good as the first flavour.
And one of my first proper road bike , didn't do mopeds but did have some 175's etc prior to this, passed my bike test on it , that's when you could have a proper bike on a provisional.
Bought it new for £799.00 pic was not long after.
Suzuki GS250T , another nice bike and I did a lot of miles on it .
sorry the pics are not that good …

My foray into moto x didnt last to long
I had a 2 stroke Maico 125 like this one
****** thing had a light switch powerband & was a nightmare to ride after a sedate trials bike
Fell off that more than the Bulto lol
I did the whole moped thing
My love at that time was a yellow Yamaha FS1E like this 1
Was a bt scary at times scraping the pedals round corners lol
My was soooo fast at the time, 52mph (every mph counted in moped days lol)
My first 250 was a Honda Superdream (yeh right)
Fortunately I had a large circle of friends who all had 250's at the time
So I ended up owning /using for various amounts of time, in no particular order
Honda CB250RS - a true lightweight 4 stroke single. Lightweight but not as quick as the 2 strokes
Suzuki Gt250 - felt slow after having a
Suzuki 250 X7 - proper lightning quick, but very unstable as it was so light
Kawasaki KH250 - great triple sound but a bitch to keep running on song & by good it drank fuel, but the noise was all worth it
Yamaha RD250E - my fave, brilliantly fast & handled well (or so I thought)
Yamaha RD250LC - cutting edge at the time but never really got on with it TBH
Remember 'em all lol
