Info: 2001 Kawasaki Er5, 9800 miles, 1 previous Owner. - PowerBronze Cockpit Fairing - Skidmarx Undertray - Kawasaki Front Fender Extender - Renntec Sports Rack Accelerates faster than you would expect if youre graduating from a 125, and even faster if its your first bike. Far better than getting one of these restricted to 33bhp than getting a full power rs125. This cost 1100. Build qua

Sold: Apr 2003
Info: Had it for a year, a great learner bike, took me through my cbt fine and dandy and used it to do about 4000 miles in 8 months. A great wee bike, that has a the looks and a decent enough engine(max.60mph) to get you confident on the road. Never mind the latest sports rep 125´s, get something sensible, as you´re always going to break something by dropping it, and the only damamge I did
1998 Honda CB 600 (Hornet)

Info: Honda Hornet, did have twin Mivv race cans and some flashy bits but had a crap tank range too. Even though its a honda, its probably the best bike Ive owned up to this point. Bought for 1450, sold for 1350. Had crap tank range and I wasn''t really impressed with the build quality either. Crash bungs are a must, if it goes down, the tank and clocks will take the main damage which will c

2000 Kawasaki ZX-6R

Purchased: Nov 2005
Sold: Feb 2006
Info: 2000 model, 12,000 miles, standard bar the hugger and screen Got it for a bargain price of 1800 too!! Very good on fuel on the motorway, surprisingly so. But a bit boring to ride, it''s all about power with these bikes, didn''t really get much enjoyment out of it and when I did, I was doing top speed runs. Not very good for the license me finks.
2000 Honda VTR 1000

Purchased: Dec 2005
Sold: Mar 2005
Info: 2000 Model Honda VTR1000F Twin ART race cans (far too loud), apart from that, I think its a standard bike really. About as quick as the zx6r but with loads more go when you are riding sedately. Which for me, is 99% of the time. Feels a bit "agricultural" and most likely nowhere near as fast and sharp as say the rsv''s, sp2''s, tuono''s, falco''s..etc. But still got considering how ch
1997 Yamaha YZF 750

Purchased: Jan 2006
Sold: Mar 2006
Info: Bought very much on impulse. Probably handled very well back in the day but felt like I was only touching on this bikes possibilites when riding it. Bit too fast, handling was a bit tough, just felt kinda inadequate riding the thing!!! Bloody thirsty too, at something like 35mpg. Very cheap bikes to buy but spares are getting rarer. Soon sold on :(

Info: FUN!!! 2nd sv and I want another now that I''ve sold it. Had twin renegade exhausts on but beleive me when I say it...they sound crap. Nowhere near as nice as a single race can. Soggy front suspension as standard and usual crappy fork corrosion but polished them up and it looked good for it''s new owner. Fully fookin recommend these bikes I do. Not the pointies though, they are bast*

Info: 30,000 miles, standard, good nick, only cost 400! Good bits: Cheap to buy Cheap to run (on motorway 120 miles = 7 of fuel @ 97.9p a litre) Sounds pretty good Comfortable Bad bites: Vibration through footpegs!! It IS terrible!!! Short 1st gear Finds neutral between 2nd to 1st too easily. Sounds a bit rattly!!! Overall, a decent machine that will munch up motorway miles in comfort and b
