    Had this prime example for a while then ran out of talent. Yep that's me on my *** in the background. Bought another one and still have it.

    That's not ideal chap, bike looks wrecked what about yourself....did you walk away or a trip in the flashing lights.
    There is allways a limit on bikes , what it takes to cross that line really does depend on so many factors....looks like you crossed it big time on that occasion.
    hope you got over it ok.

    Triple figures did a superman and broke my collar bone. Travelled a fair distance from the bike. Luckily I didn't hit anything just slid so still here to talk about it. Bike was an insurance write off. Got the pay out and bought another identical if not quite as clean up in London. I've not put a lot of miles on this one. Weekend sunny day toy. Crash didn't slow me down, not learnt my lesson. I didn't die so all good. Only did 85 miles last year between MOTs. That's mainly down to getting a pacemaker fitted, but that's another story.

    My first experience of Audi's was in 1985 which was very up close and personal...lol
    A guy driving an audi 80 pulled out if front of me then decided to stop dead on a wet road.....needless to say a CB900 moving at 50mph on a wet road wont stop that quick, and it didn't and I just had nowhere to go except straight into the back of the audi, and it hurt big time.
    Bike just stuck in the boot of the audi and I went right over the whole car, ouch frankly, I walked away from it in the true sense of the word as I had to walk home, PC plod arrived too late but gave me a lift the rest of the way home.
    Still had to work the next day aswell as self employed but I really was not in a good condition and still suffer from leg problems all these years later, anyway like I say , it goes with the territory really, it took me nearly 5 years to get the claim against him sorted out .

    Two types of bikers mate, those who have crashed and those who are going to. I have had 2 x tumbles and resulted in broken back (twice), broken ankle, broken hand, broken ribs but all fixed. Does it stop you riding/wanting a bike, definitely not. Glad your ok buddy but I'm sure you'll agree, no car can compare to a fast bike.
    Brutale 1090RR for me and no chicken strips. EDIT well very thin ones :whistle2:

    That's a hell of a long claim time. I've had three bike accidents now. First one was on my old 5jj R1 again ran out of talent. I bounced well, so no lasting physical injuries just pride. Second one was an old boy facing me with a roadside car park to his right. As I approached him, I was thinking to myself he's going to move and low and behold yep. Turn over my path. Luckily I was only doing 25. Witnessed by the cars behind me and several pedestrians. Locked up the front up came the back end front tucked. And I ended up at the front of his car. Got up and looked in the window to see two old boss like rabbits in headlights. Was with MCE insurance and still am. Got a pay out and the bike fixed no problem within a couple of months. A lot of people slate MCE, But I've had nothing but top service from them for a number of years. With a premium of £132 fully comp on a gixxer 1000 K5 with my history. I can't complain.

    I'm a bit of a fan when it comes to MV's , classic models are great but the new F4 Rc looks like a proper tool.
    would love to get my hands on one .
    212 BHP and only 175 kg's a bit nippy then..

    Drop a bored out bandit engine into it. Is the frame the same as the 1100 slingshot.

    Would probably go straight in alright.. I'm going to try keep it with the original engine if possible as it seems to run well.

    Cheers Rob. The 853 conversation is the way to go alright. A friend had it done a while back and it transformed the bike.
    I really like the ducatis from the ninetys. Would love to get my hands on a 888 or an 851.
    I used to have a 900 superlight. Some sound out of it. The 2 valve motors have a serious thump out of them. Used to set of car alarms regularly.

    I must admit i'm a bit of a duke addict..lol
    Had a fair few too date but mostly the sports based.
    having owned 3 varaints of the superlight, the Mk1 was by far the best of the bunch really .
    My first 900 superlight was a mk1 race tuned by baines , it sounded awesome and really went well on road and track. The polished alloy and gold mag marvic wheels and white frame were really nice.
    Very sought after bikes these days.
    Best duke I had was an 888sps , a real brute very fast aswell but took some less than ideal advice and sold it for a 916sps which was a bad move in some ways , but hey that's life.

    Were the mag parts on the 955 when you got it?
    Really rare that stuff.

    No they weren't , I bought the bike in a right mess and it was missing a lot of the original race parts inc the narrow track ohlins and mag arm etc, but engine and frame were original .
    Spent a fair time tracking down original parts but it all came together in the end.

    Go the whole hog. 125bhp can be had without overboring and a good tune/exhaust. 150bhp and more with the over bore and the power band is still so broad and smooth. It would look stock too. If the frame could take it and was the same as the 1100 frame then it would be a cracker.

    Hey, bit of a newbie here, but love the forums and friendly advice!

    I drive an Audi S1 and a 1988 VW Panel van (when it’s running!), and have a BMW F800GS and a Husqvarna Nuda 900R. The BMW is currently SORN, but got the Nuda back on the road just in time for the rains to start up

    I haven’t been on a bike for a couple of years, so it’s been a blast to get back in the saddle again!!

    Hello all. Ducati Monster 821 Dark here. All black. My first and only bike and have no plans on changing it unless I got a Diavel which is not on my short list of things to get right now.

    Mines looking a bit sorry for itself at the moment. It’s getting:
    New brake hoses
    All callipers rebuilt with new pistons and seals
    Both master cylinders rebuilt
    Some new slider pins
    New discs and pads
    All the old CBS stuff has been removed and brakes de-linked

    Back on the road for Sunday I’m hoping. Original callipers and disks have done 149k in 22 years so they’ve not done badly.
