OK, so a few words on my bike, it started life as a 1999 600 yammy Fazer owned by the Suffolk spanner monkey, who for reasons of his own decided to give it a make over (cue the hacksaw ,checker plate, Matt black, and more importantly , the Turbo!) why? I hear you ask, because..., it should be answer enough.
Through a complicated series of events, (me getting shot of my much loved mt500 and a spare bike) resulted in me gaining possession of checker plated monstrosity, out comes the hacksaw of survivaldom along with the spray paint of blackness, resulting in a bike I'm really starting to like :)
Attention should be drawn to the fact that it has a turbo, yep its feckin quick, but it behaves perfectly well, abit like riding a big two stroke with loads of torque, although I've found it hard to ride slowly because of the ultra cool sound of the dump valve blowing ,the induction noise this bike makes is second to none.
Everyday, and I mean everyday, 'cos its a commuter, I love this bike more and more, so a big f*ck you to the shiny I've more money than sense brigade, and a big up nuff respect to the true garden shed biker , I've been doing this for 25 years and will be doing it for many more, ride safe and paint it black!
