Info: Was away from bikes for a little while after a minor crash put my Gixer out of action. Decided to go for a gutless, cheap and easy to ride option for my come back and this bad boy only set me back 460! Spent a little on it in terms of brakes, and carbs but other than that been running it since the start of the summer 2011 and now going through the winter months with no issues.

Purchased: Aug 2003
Info: Quite possibly out of all the bikes Ive owned from my Fire blade through to my Gixer thou this TLR has been my favorite of the bunch. The bike has always been slated by any review your find but with a combination of the sound (twin arrow cans) and the handling (Ohlins rear shock) it was the best all rounder i could of wished for. I pushed this bike to the point i was wearing out my pegs an

Info: My first proper superbike as it were and the bike i owe everything too. Possible the easiest bike in the world to ride as they take a lot to crash them. This bike i learned to to wheelie, go fast-ish and to get my knee down with, all the hard way. The bike finally died after some kind man drove into the side of me, a blessing as with the money i bought my TLR 1000 - good times.

Purchased: May 2004
Info: This was my Suzuki GSXR-1000 Rizla K1 and as anyone who has owned one will tell you it was an amazing bike, the power this thing had through 3rd and 4th was something else. The bike was stolen in late 2004 and i used half the money from the insurance to buy a car and the other half for a track bike :)

Info: Had this bike to get me by while i was waiting for the cash from an insurance claim to come through. Thought i''d try something different with one of these and to be fair it is to this day still the only bike i have bought and sold in 1 piece, that''s got to count for something i guess. The bike on the road was boring and i was glad to see the back of it to tell the truth.
1993 Honda CBR 900

Purchased: Nov 2004
Info: This bike was CBR600 frame with a blade ''93'' engine inside. I was going to use the bike to do some track days at Snett throughout the year but on my first track day i found the oil sump had a leak and on a quick warm up ride round the car park found it had coated the rear tyre with oil. I did my best to patch up the leak and got the go ahead to ride on the track. 1st session went fine and come

Purchased: Jul 2008
Info: Bought this bike for 2,300 Had a lot of fun with the Blade since having it and compared to my last bikes it kinda sits on the fence with what it rides like. Doesn''t quite have the power that the Gixer gave but it feels light and wants to dive into the corners like a much small bike.

Info: spent more than most would of getting the bike up to standard but its done now and should last a few years. Bike tops out at 70mph and for a 4 stroke automatic it doesn''t take as long as you''d think to get there either. Handles like a sofa but thats not why you buy a YP-250 i guess.

Info: The GSXR 1000 ZK4 limited edition model. Bought the bike for 3,000. In good condition (not mint) and has a power comander fitted and after market exhuast. As long as the thing doesnt blow up on me it will be the bargin of the century. Its the bike ive wanted for some time and still cant believe i got one for the silly price i paid.
