Thumbs up Head 1st into Oblivion..

Hi Guys,
I'm 64 yrs young, currently riding 2008 F4 1000 R312 which I've owned for 7 yrs. It does everything it says on the tin!! it's got 32,000 on the clock, I px'd my 2000 Ducati 748 for it. I do all my own servicing/repairs, finally after 11 yrs the rear wheel brngs are fudged, I'm gonna sort em out in next couple of days. Bearings and seals - 70.

Any way I digress, been a biker for 47 yrs. My first bike in 1972 -

#1 - Yamaha 250 YDS7, #2 - Yamaha RD250, #3 - Kawasaki Z250 Scorpion, #4 - Suzuki GT380, #5 - Suzuki GT550, #6 - Honda CB900, #7 - Yamaha FZR600, #8 - Honda VFR750, #9 - Suzuki GSXR750 L, #10 - Ducati 748 Biposta, #11 - MV F4 1000 R312.
I had a ride on a Triumph Trident T160 with Dunlop TT100 tyres fitted.. what a death trap!!

Hi Cavey, and welcome.

Shame you didn't see the light until bike number 6, but I guess you've made up for it since!

Nice F4, although I am biased. I have the 'slower' one

2018 CBR1000RR SP2 : 2011 CBR1000RR : 2004 CBR1000RR : 2003 CBR954RR : 2001 CBR929RR (Erion Racing Edition)
