    Thanks, mines a non abs bud. Looking at carbon original Honda rear hugger on eBay but unsure if it worth the risk as it £175

    pretty much all my crashes (outside the track) have been slow speed (< 15 mph) crashes. a few of those left me stranded due to cracked stator/etc

    I’m now prepared with an engine cage & subframe cage

    Brilliant photo, Andrew. I sense some professional knowledge behind that shot, or did @raphael take it!:D

    LMFAO... must try harder!
    Would love to take credit for the picture but it was done by someone who is a pro, but he took a darn fine shot of her. See, I do love her, even if she is currently breaking my heart! :)

    Here is my 08 blade.
    Some of you may recognise this bike from somewhere.
    As you can see it has been extensively modified and is quite a special bike.
    I purchased it from Bauer (PB) before someone broke it up for spares and cashed in. This bike is the end of an era for PB and it was far too good to end up broken up and sold for bits.

    So i now commute on it lol

    Very nice and the 500 LC behind brings back memory’s - was the second shot taken whilst you’d nipped in a public convenience? Others will be interested I’m sure :D

    Ha well spotted - ok this originates from PB too funnily enough, the forum word filter substitutes the C word and replaces it with GENT, i still get a smug sense of superiority when in business meetings and i can say to someone "you are a real GENT" and they are like "cheers man"
    GENT was also one of my surname Alias's when they had borrowed any of my bikes to feature. Again for reasons of common sense / security but also because it was a silent nod to the PB regulars
