    Welcome Toggsy. You have actually already got a mention in here. Look in Great Biking Roads and read “Try These Too”.

    Your pipe noisy?? Is Tony Blair Tory??

    Just read the “try these too” How do you remember it all? all I remember is trying to keep up with you on the T Cat and trying to stay ahead of AP on the GPZ.I think you guys held back a bit just to make me look as if I knew what I was doing.
    You make it sound as if the exhaust on “Lassie” (Just thought of that name, although I am open to suggestions for any others, just bare in mind she goes well and screams when you open her up to 14K mind you who wouldn’t) exceeds the legal decibel limit.
    OK fare cop it is a bit (only a bit though) noisy, PARDON!!!!!!

    Opening up Lassie (who goes really well)? Think you’re in the wrong forum mate. Welcome anyway, I have my non-MOT pipes on too and the others are wrapped up in the garage for the winter.

    ZZR is a good looking bike I think. How does it handle?



    I’ve donated to the forum, have you?

    Haven’t had too many experiences on bikes, I have only riden a few in my time, my main comparison is to the GT250 of years ago, and suprise suprise it handles “considerably” better than that, hardly a review suitable for MCN or Which Bike, but you can only tell it as it is.
    Not being bias or anything like that but I must aggree with you, it is a Bl**dy good looking bike, certainly for its time.
    It feels very sure footed on the black stuff, being the younger brother of the 600 and sharing the frame and many other things ( I think) It feels like a solid bike, it looks like a solid bike and when you give it a few of the old revolutions it doesn’t go too bad either.
    I personally would recommend it to anybody who’s thinking of getting back into biking or someone who wants to get on the rungs of the big bike ladder,
    Oh! just thought (plug plug)I will be selling it in the New Year ( it’s upgrade time)so if anyone knows of anyone who might be interested. Give me a shout.
    Seriously it’s a good bike.

    No probs toggsy, if you cant figure out how to post piccie, email a piccie and details, price etc and I’ll go from there. Email addy is in my profile, or Radar has my alternative email address (yes I have a few LOL)!
    I know 2 peeps looking for a smallish sporty bike so I will see if they are interested in yours.
