hey  all - I'm new here - so thought I'd say say hullo and show off my prilla which I've had painted as I wasnt really into the original color - and wanted something a little different.

not to everyones taste - but I like it

All things considered - the best place for a bike is inside...  good for the bike, security, and I can't tell you how nice it is to work on the bike 'inside' during winter too!

Over the past few months - I've done Akra full system, double bubble, lots of polishing - you can see the wheels if nothing else, few bits of carbon etc,  also been restoring my little TZR stinkwheel (in the background)

just a few niggles to sort out yet on the mille and it will be lovely...   pictures don't really do the bike justice, gets plenty of thumbs up where ever I go - though the twin akra  full system is thunderous , almost embarassing

I know what you mean ben, ive got a 2 into one Akra and a newly fitted rene copy airbox and it really does make some noise . As for working on the bike , i have to do that outside and its no fun. Next winter i will have my workshop built hopefully Thumbs%20Up

Welcome Ben,
 
I'm glad your exhaust system is only 'almost' embarrassing.  We don't want you to be uncomfortable do we?
 
Have fun

I used to have one of those, blue and yellow. It was in really nice condition until I put it through a fence.    Ouch

mmm - they are a fickle little beast....  mine put a rod through it's block - which locked the back wheel - and threw me off the highside a few weeks ago... little b**ch

Still - I'm halfway through rebuilding it... call me a sucker for punishment...
It's soooooo tiny next to the mille
