    Good luck with it.
    It's absolutely immaculate, someone is going to get a great bike there.

    Cheers @hitch . I am way over the top price wise, but I'll give it a week before I decide whether or how much to drop.

    Realistically, I should probably be in the 55 - 59 arena. But hey, a man has to finance his next beast somehow!;)

    Yes mate, completely agree.
    The bike is mint and given all the original fairings and bits included PLUS the history...someone surely will make a decent offer sooner or later.

    Hoping for either the proposed Daytona or 2020 Blade. If they both catch my eye I might also drop the RR4.

    Had a letter from the Triumph factory advising they're making an announcement at the Silverstone Moto GP. Of course I read between the lines on that and be hopeful of my Moto 2 rep.;)

    Think I'd have to sell the SP2 to afford that!:D

    Fingers crossed your reading between the lines is correct. Would be a good time to announce the new Daytona.

    2020 Fireblade isn't going to offer you anything different over your sp2.

    Fully agree. If it's just another few stripes I wouldn't bother. But my reliable source is that it's an 'all new' one.

    Shame is that 'all new' could simply mean all new paint and plastics with little to no other change. If that were the case, I wouldn't bother - I'd seriously consider BMW and replace what are said to be 'shoddy' plastics with carbon.

    For your riding I dont think you can get a better bike than the SP2. It looks amazing, has brilliant build quality and is a great road bike. Your sp2 is a better bike for your needs than the new BMW. As a track bike that's a different story all together.

    No all new fireblade in 2020.

    Honda work in 4-5 year cycles so can’t see a new blade out next year! If it is “new” it will probably be more ironing out of the ecu and dash with new paint scheme

    That's what concerns me. Another 2 white stripes instead of blue and pay an extra grand for it. No thanks.

    Sure, Charlie. It's off SORN at the mo and been out a few times, and perhaps again this weekend. It's a keeper for me; I mean, it might be worth 10K in five years!:rolleyes:;)
