My 98 R1....full QB carbon bodywork, JHP titanium high level exhaust, Harris rearsets, Haga rep paint job in blue, Marvic wheels, Penske shock....


That's why I had to get rid....

Better to have something you don't need than need something you don't have....

Sold Aprilia May 2015 to buy it, sold it 3 months later and bought same Aprilia back

Wooden handling, terrible brakes, very worrying top end rattle (apparently the norm on these but I still didn't like it). Very pretty though and fantastic engine once it got going

My Ducati 916 sp. One of only 711 built. Pushed it from the Isle of whight in a shocking state as a non runner. Rebuilt it from the ground up. Only sold it as had to due to an emergency move to a flat with no garage. Never seen one as original since and have only seen 4 for sale in the past 5 years. Wish I could find it and afford to buy it back.
If its not broken then fix it until it is

My 2005 zx6r which I sold as it wasn't getting used after I got the Tuono. Would have liked to have kept it but not enough time for 2 bikes unfortunately.

Sv 1000s

Bought it new in 2003, bike 2 of the first batch of 3 sent to the dealers at launch

Kept it until a couple of years back but once I got the Mille I hardly ever used it

Now the Mille is a track bike and I have an 09' Tuono as a road bike

I still have the bike before my Tuono, my 998

I was very cruel to her and barrel rolled her at Snetterton necessitating a long and painful rebuild so it now has pride of place at the Dining table.


But they do make a nice pair


Would love a Tuono Racing to add to the garage

TL1000R, bought new in 99 and sold in 02 to be replaced by a new Mille which I still have. I wanted a bike with better handling which turned out to be much better handling.

My last one was a ZX7-R, in green of course. The pic below isn't mine (Pinched the image from the web as I can't find one of mine at the moment) but it's the same version. I really liked that bike even though it was a bit heavy, but what a planted front end and probably the best face ever seen on a sportbike.

Sold it because I fell in love with my Gen1 RSVR (Bought new in  2001) as soon as I test rode it.

That's the one, best Tuono I ever had. The insurance thieves wanted £1,800 for the wreckage Shocked, it was probably worth £800 max.

Bought this my first ape back in 2010 absolutely loved it. Only sold it because my current bike popped up on here and it was cheaper to buy a factory rather than upgrade the original bike. So here's the factory [IMG]http://URL=http://s40.photobucket.com/user/adamfennell/media/Mobile%20Uploads/DSC_0015_zpsntxloyni.jpg.html][/URL][/IMG]
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

My Blackbird in Glen Coe, owned for ten years and sold due to my aches & pains, did 25,000 miles on it, toured Ireland, Holland, France and Scotland as well as many UK trips, did 162mph at Elvington Top Speed Day ( 180 on clock )
Sold on eBay to an English bloke living in Sweden and I bought a Fazer 1000 for touring.

K7 GSXR600 Isle of man TT LTD edition.  Let a friend have a go, he binned it, we re-painted it.  Then it decided to have endless electrical problems. Bye bye bike.
