I just had to kick myself up the Ass and go modern. Still got the t595 shaped trumpet, but when i saw this in black , just needed a good clean, a GSXR 750 K6 , with supercorsas and an Akropovic, Renthal bars . Piazzo levers all for well under £3 and half grand....well i had to have it. spur of moment.

 

Now i cant get off it! And the rush is just fab.

 

Born happy again!!!

correct

but when i first rode the gixer, i thought the previous owner hadnt removed the throttle restrictor (he was 21)

wondered what the fuss was about, till i realised i was at 3000 rpm...the triumph stomped off at that revs. changed down 2 gears , pinned throttle and YEEEOOOOWWWW!

 

Now for an early nite, jog past carpers at lake at barston (7am), get home, buy the beer and food, for after the YEEEOOOWWWWW on the black banshee.

 

Life is what you make it, and its Fab.:winkie:

i got to admit that my gixxer has been mainly a polish toy this year with me only covering 2k miles on her and most of them were on two overnight outings up north:shock:.................but she does look all shiny n new under a dust cover in the garage:wink:.......................but in my defense the work bike has covered 18k in the last year so that probably explains why i aint been on her much:biggrin:.......................though im disappointed i only managed one trackday and that was very wet and cold with hail stones as well:wacko:.....................heres hoping for a better 2013
