    Hi,
    I am English but based in Wellington NZ.

    The first litre bike I ever rode was a 2015 Blade and it ruined me as after that I immediately went out and bought my first litre bike a 2009 R1.

    A few weeks ago I got the opportunity to purchase that 2015 Blade and jumped at the chance!

    So now I am the proud owner of these two beauties.

    Welcome mate, R1 looks good but you should have gone for a Repsol with that Orange lid.;)

    I wouldn't say that for fear of a 140 kilo Maori afro living beneath the helmet!!:D

    And welcome, Pooks. Always good to have a spare bike. You never know when the Yamaha might fail!;)

    Lol, cheers mate ...at the moment the blade is the commuter and the R1 is waiting for some additional parts to be fitted to get through its MOT. They are such different bikes to ride and both equally fun when you give a hand full of throttle.

    Cheers mate.
    Yeah NZ has some epic rides, especially on the South Island where there are less road cops about and great roads.
