    Hey all, I run a 2010 Blade and a K5 GSX-R street-fighter. Used to be bike only, but now have the luxury of a cage, so bikes are for fun, fast transport, general misbehaviour and emptying the wallet. Wherever possible, I like to do modifications, maintenance and repairs myself. So, for me, a good forum is my knowledge base and support network- wise counsel always sought. Hullo!

    Instantaneous emotional response?
    Because she’s an absolute animal. I’d done 44k miles from new on a 20th anniversary model. She’d gone from baby blue to matte black and been an absolute terrorist in several countries. She’s that good I doubt I will ever let her go. But, I’d never had a street bike and don’t race. New bike or take her clothes off?
    —-A streetfightered sports bike will out perform any factory street bike offering- KTM, Aprillia and Triumph excepted. Top speed is irrelevant. Brutal good looks desired.

    She’s still not road legal or finished, but is an absolute hooligan.

    Sorry to make my introductory post about a GSX-R, but you asked...

    Still, here’s the Blade. But, having said all that about the Gixer, think the blades getting naked now...

    Thats’ a Trumpet. Some Bonny version with mods I think. Not mine, not hooligan enough. Don’t get these retro things that eschew the advances to moto tech...
