If it's broken, it's not fixed.

First glance I thought it was an early Mazda 323, RX2 or Capella but the filler cap is on the wrong side.

Or a Nissan 200B :lol

Some say that he eats habanero chilli peppers dipped in oil of capsaicin for extra bite and that his pyjamas are made from Nomex. All we know is, he's called Ad the Bad

54 plate gen 1 Thou and a street triple r.
I'm thinking about swapping the FZS for an XJR1300 though, fancy a change and think the XJRS look great in the blue or yellow speedblock paint. Will be more bird friendly too I hope.

I didn't say I don't have a bike; just that I don't have one in my garage at the moment. It's gone on holiday for a bit. But it's sad to walk into the garage and there's no bike there. Very empty. Even when it's pissing down with rain, you go into your garage, and there it is, a promise of sunny days to come.

I know 1 thing already, having gone over 2 bumps on the road home near me ,that used to kick me out the seat of my Fazer, the Tracer just soaked them up-guess I should of fitted that new R6 shock that ive had laying around since the autumn.
Im loving the Tracer, a great handling bike, easy to ride and the sound of the engine/exhaust is  growing on me.
desperately trying to get the bike run in to get the 1st service done before easter.the down side of having a brand new bike is being stuck to the bloody warranty !!

You do know there is more than one theory of how best to run a new bike in?

I really like them! Like a TDM850 only with Honda build quality. The only problems are price, and I think they would be a little underpowered for my taste at about 55bhp? That's the only reason I sold my TDM, another 20bhp and it would have been fine. Now that Yamaha Tracer, that's more like it, still too expensive for me unfortunately  :'(  Plus, im not quite sure about the look of the engine, too may engine covers, all covered with shiny bolts, lots of them, kinda looks as if they have thrown the various parts of the engine at it and bolted them on where they landed. I think it would be a black engine bolt set if I ever had the cash to buy one. Which should be in about 8 years.
