    Nice one so it was you that followed it lol
    They sure did, and that is felt from riding the thing.
    The wrap was quite subjective and divided most readers - with the majority hating it.
    Fact is it is certainly unique and wont pale into insignificance over time - lets be honest it you saw this bike in 5 years time as is, you would recognize and remember it.

    Anyway its insured until March, i got till then to win novice on it at Anglesey lol
    And there is some unfinished business with this bike and hopefully will have a date with Rutter and Donnington - this wouldn't be possible if it had been broken up for bits and scattered all over the country

    :(:(:( I have fond memories of mine.

    Your pic reminds me of seeing a former wife, but the added complexity of trying to work out which one!:D:D

    Great you've got it home though. Now the work begins!!;)

    For sure, I’ll be having it out and getting the polish all over it to stop the drool marks over the weekend. For now a couple I took at the dealers (and an “arty” one too haha)...

    My Candy Glory Red 2009 Non-ABS - Owned for 5y. Finally got round to doing the Xenon conversion and black side covers just this month:D
    My Pop (in his 80's) called it a Red Gorilla when he saw it... it stuck:cool: 20200520_112856.jpg 20200520_112911.jpg 20200519_203926.jpg

    Oooh i forgot about this thread.
    Well i did manage to get the PB Blade out on track last year.
    I had a day at Anglesey in Sept i think it was.
    I doff my cap at how anyone can muscle one of these around for a 20 min session. All i could muster was a couple of laps before i was knackered. Mostly on one wheel. it wouldn't stop going vertical down both of the straights and over the start finish.
    It caught the eye of Jenny whom clocked a few juicy parts on it shared with her own 08 blade.
