Meet my new bike

I've still got Goldie the Gixxer, the new arrival is a second bike for relaxed rides on sunny days :sunglasses:

I've always fancied getting one of these, so when a good deal came along I decided to go for it...

I know it won't be to everyone's taste, so just remember the old saying - if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all! :winkie:

I had mine converted.

I don't now what year yours is, but I'm fairly sure it needs to be 2000 or older to make it worth doing.(2000 is the last year they came without all the emissions gubbins on). Then change the gearing. I used the bigger front pulley from a Buell. Less vibration and enough acceleration to make sports bike riders wonder why you're still in their mirrors, laughing at them.

Beelady/Oldish

My bike is a 2011 model, so possibly destined to stay at 883cc. TBH, when I was browsing the used bikes it was a 1200 I was after, but this one turned up at an independent dealer way cheaper than everything else, I would have been mad not to take it.

I don't know why it was priced so low; it came with owner's wallet, service book 2 keys etc. I also checked with the original dealer and it's all genuine...

Like oldish says, the plan is to enjoy pootling about on sunny days and not have to worry about speed cameras or cop cars! :biggrin:
