    Never mind that, who noticed Orinoco browsing the Datsun Cherry in the background?

    True.   They did come with the Imperial, though, as well.   Corgi put a teaser on the original boxes saying "Surprise in Boot!" 
     
    Yeah, surprise!   The same piece that came with the Cortina.... 
     
    There were two figures in the car originally, too.   A man and a woman.   And a golf bag in the trunk....Bet that wasn't his wife, though - she was probably sat at home thinking hubby had gone off on a golf weekend with his buddies.

    I test rode the Z900RS last weekend, it was a lovely bike and felt like a premium product, it also had all the latest electrics which was nice but not really needed, I liked it, it wasn't sporty at all which for me crossed it off the list, I'd have one as a second bike any day.
     
     

     
    The PCP deal I was offered on one was £1200 down and £120/month for 3 years, depends whether you want to rent or buy one I guess.

    I'm sick of bikeshite and the constant cycle of having to fix stuff on older bikes so bought this today, its not comfy but its fucking fun!
     
    Picked up this brand new with zero miles on the clock,   Managed 221 miles before my arse cried anough  Its great fun, and plenty quick enough,I was told to keep it under 6800rpm for 600 miles, fuck that, I don't think it was below that all day ,  it feels like a bicycle after the FZ1 which was planted and stable, this is anything but it gets a bit flighty at the top end of 5th and 6th gears, and likes to waggle the bars a lot, its also impossible to keep the front wheel down, which is nice, the OE Bridgestone S20 tyres are crap and the ABS seems over enthusiastic but overall its great, I might fit an Akrapovic to it but they are a grand, I'm currently trying to secure one a bit cheaper than that.  Pic without the screen fitted, its now been put back on.

    My BMW K75 Ultima (..following on from my previous post < here > ) had its tyre changed and was MOT'd on Wednesday and today was taxed. It's now ready and legal to earn its keep again.    but my savings are down by £200 (with tyre + MOT + tax for 6 months)
     
    The starting-to-slip clutch will need doing soon, but if I ride her sensibly and just for the daily commute to & from the boat-yard ..then perhaps optimistically I hope she'll last through until I take her off the road sometime late December.   We'll see !
     
    The new Bridgestone BT45, on the back, felt not a lot different to the Avon Roadrider.  If anything just a little less tracking across ridges along the concrete section of the A14.  No noticeable difference on the farm's dirt track, but it felt harder dropping into a pothole.  Tbh I've not checked the tyre pressure since it was fitted and I have done very limited miles., and non at all on wet roads.  Anyone interested in feedback later on ought to drop me a PM ..as I'm sure my experience with one tyre versus the next on this particular bike - is of no interest to most of you.
     
    I bid you safe but fun riding.

    Why hasn't the auction ended then, that's a superb offer.....
     
    Would I have one of these again ? In a heartbeat. Especially for £199.99 in 130 GL spec. Woo-hoo.

    Ref spotting ex track bikes, they are usually found with mint road bodywork, marked wheels, often scarred chassis parts, possibly even track scrubs too.
    Thing is we see a few that look mint at a few paces, but bodywork hiding crash damaged frames.
     
    Dont mix ex-trackday bikes (not scrutineered) and race bikes (scrutineered) as maintenance varies hugely.
     
    If you are not clued up, you could easily end up with a complete turd for strong money. I would take someone with you who has a bit of nouse as the worst thing you could do is get shiny bike syndrome! - Be wary of traders as they will tell you pretty much anything to bag a sale.
    If I could say anything, it would be to look for something with service history and all the original bits, its more likely to hold value and is a better indicator on the owner (Bolt on tat and Monster sticker kits with no service history is something I avoid for resale)

    I had one (99) I used as a trackbike a couple of years back. The engines are very strong, its a fast engine, chassis and standard suspension were spot on once set up for the rider's weight. The only mods being full system, dynojet and K&N filter, all good.
    If I had not cartwheeled it into the scenery, I would still have it
     
    Folk usually suggest CBR600 but personally, found the power delivery very linear and a bit slow, but deffo solid. Early R6's are plagued with cylinder crack issues which kills the engine (Tell tale smoking when hot). Eary GSXR600 K1/2/3 are a good solid bike too but watch the gearbox...
    They are all popular track/race bikes so tread carefully as many find their way back onto the road!
