Myself and my ride buddy have traded in our Diavels for BMW S1000rr's. Christ, they are fast. The Diavels were quick, but these are on another level. Not the torgue grunt of a V Twin, more of an insane, very addictive, top end rush. They are quite flexible engines as well, the bikes handle fab, stop great and aint too bad on fuel. BUT WAY TOO QUICK !!

Stunning! I have had two S1000RRs and they're in a different league, well was when they came out. Brutal power, but also a great package, they do everything so well.

Hi,
I build and maintain race bikes for living, in fact I was involved in the building of the MV that Martin pictured at the start of this thread, we worked together in 2007 BSB SSK, fast that lad, and bloody clever, that MOTO 2 bike is awesome.

Currently not riding on the road, just sold my KTM 1290 super duke to fund M4.

Got a few race bikes, mostly Honda's but mostly sat gathering dust now.

That is very cool! I wish I had the time to put together a little cafe racer to pop out on during the summer.

That MV looks like a serious but of kit. I stopped riding on the road about 5 years ago and sold my track bike recently due to lack of time and funds after our second baby. Hopefully get back into one day though...

The LEGEND that is Wurz!! damn nice to hear from you mate!! I hope all is well with you? Good choice on an M4, when I can bring myself to part with the V8 I'll be looking at an M4 to replace it.

All good here mate, still playing with bikes!
Really enjoying the M4, been a while since I had a toy car so learning how to drive again
What you busy with, any new builds on the cards?

I am getting on a bit now so have slowed down and ride large Yamaha cruisers

My 07 Roadstar 1700cc has now done 54K miles and apart from tyres and brake pads had a new battery last year, an old plodder that is comfortable and reliable

My 13 Raider SCL [ star custom line ] 1900cc I bought of USA e bay and imported it myself, it is one of only 2 in the country, a different bike, very capable and now nice to be able to switch between the 2.

There is also my daughters ZZR1400 in the stable, which lives with me, she used to ride it like she stole it but has also slowed down with maturity.
