Now comes the hard question.

Which one will you be taking, left hand or right hand bike from your signature?

old wobbler


Its the Purple one - thats always been the one for a good ride on my own - its faster in accelleration and top speed as well as more economical. The blue one was never intended to be ridden as much as it was last year, only due to the problems I had with the purple bike that took me ages to afford to have fixed. All done now. Blue one is due MOT March but should go straight through

i love your blue one drac. why do you prefer to ride the purple one?


The blue one is special - I will ride it to events, meets etc and the crutch carriers fit to that but not the other so I will always use that if I need to walk far once I get anywhere. It has a lot of stone chips and paint off on the belly pan and nose and as its so white and aged, not easy to match.

Also as it was done in gsxr colours I am not sure what years colours they used. I tried to get touch upo paints but they weren't an exact match. I love it more than the purple bike but see the above post for why I like the purple bike

russ got out on his today haha first time I;ve been pillion in ages!!! really strange as a bike feels so different from the back when you have no control. had to physically stop myself from pre-empting corners and leaning before the corner, instead of just leaning with the bike.....

Boo hoo!. I have used the RF every day since last Saturday :D an it was very mucky. I decided that Friday night I would clean it and cover it up as I will not be around for at least three weeks. :( I had decided to use the supplied company van for work on this Saturday's travel to Sittingbourne and when I came home in early afternoon I see the glorious sun shine and all the extra bikes on the road only to be in the van. :( I was glad that at least I did not suffer heavy traffic at the tunnel.
