What's your single most recent motorbike purchase ?
« on: 06 March 2015, 09:42:55 am »
I know we all have a tendency to fritter a bit of money away here and there, but what was your single most recent (non-consumable) purchase relating to motorbikes ?

Mine was a pair of Gerbing G12 heated gloves which I bought whilst my bike was being MOT'd.

Top tip, get your bike MOT'd somewhere that they DON'T sell motorbike gear.  It can get expensive.

Saw a high rise exhaust, link pipe and modified pillion peg on ebay and just HAD to buy it.

Told the wife I really, really needed it.
Stop polishing it and ride the bloody thing!!

A 4 degree ignition advancer for my fazer 1000 (excellent value!) and a pair of tyres for my sv1000 suzuki (not quite so cheap!!)  Soon to get a stage 1 Ivanising kit fitted - hoping that will be good too!
This is as young as you're ever going to be!

Did you see Roadcraft Nottinghams video about the Tracer ?  (
) I really wanted to love the Yamaha 3 cylinder but I'm not tempted until they can make the EFI smooth as silk and the fuel tank looked a bit small too :-)...
...
...
...
Takes a lot to beat a street triple though ;-) (obviously not the same demographic as the Tracer, but it does go up against the MT09)

A big Italian supertwin and a Carbon Fiber helmet to match.
Not quite sure what to do with my early mid-life crisis. Ideas on a post card to P.O.BOX 150...

I always wanted a v2 tuono, as i owned a falco and loved the v2 rotax engine. Bought the v4 tuono and it's best bike i've owned bar none! Aprilia bring soul to motorcycling :)

I would agree, but so far I have only brought it home from Glenrothes in -2C Snow!!!  :lol


The Sprag Clutch is gubbed. First job in the new workshop? Maybe.

Not wishing to diss' anyones ride, but what does that fairing look like in the flesh, not sure if it's the angle of the photo or the light, or the lens cover, but it looks distinctly odd ...
