just picked this little beauty up the other day




absolutely mint condition kwaka zx9r with a few nice bits fitted too plus original items came with it,

rode it back late the other night and first time ive really ridden a bike for almost 10 years and was very edgey on her if im honest but it was fookin cold and drizzly too so not the ideal time to really get a bike, still the ultimate adrenalin rush to being a suicide jockey Laughing

these things can still mix it with a lot of modern stuff on the track so il see if ive still got the balls to ride it on the edge or if maybe ive lost my bottle!
being off bikes for that amount of years is a long time plus being older and bigger with slower reactions doesn't really bode well lol but I couldn't resist buying it as was soooooo clean and never been dropped or tracked

r called jay


Looks nice Bob. Is definately a rush over driving a car.

And I imagine it was a real shock riding after 10 years. I don't ride my sports bike over the winter so first ride out in spring is a real shock to the system.

Take it easy and build up slowly, but I don't need to tell you that, and it'll all come back to you with a bit more experience on your side to keep you rubber side down.

Yeah planning on doing a few track days this year as my lads into bikes big time now so would be good to hopefully teach him a few things about racing on the track and pass on a few things I've learnt in the past.
Think il need to do a bit more riding on her first though to get used to the bike and try brush off some cobwebs as been a long time but hopefully it will come back to me, if not il flog it before I end up wiping myself out, that's why I stopped almost 10 years ago

Not for me bikes, love them as the engineering marvels they are but i'm no biker & like my 4 rubber tyre patches. Have a Honda wave runabout but don't use that much as basically i'm useless on bikes & hate hospitals :-) See so many bike crashes over here & it not good :-/ plus no NHS so even minor Bike accidents can be expensive ...

Santa bought me this . It's absolute concorse right down to original tyres. Never been touched and totally original for 23 years old. It's done just over 5k miles from new and never been restored. Had 5 owners 1st was in the forces so he didn't use it much then his mate bought it off him and kept it in his garage for 3 yrs until he needed cash so his dad bought it and kept it in the same garage for another 3 years. Then Suzuki borrowed it to put on show at there NEC stand. The 3rd owner sold it to a bloke who wrapped it in bubble wrap in his front room then he sold it to a collector now I own it. Just Gina keep it and watch it go up in value. Still after a standard clean ducati 916 to store as well. I've got a blade that's my normal use bike for TT etc and riding in the rain lol but now I'm gun a start collecting rather than looking at money in the bank. My 1999 blade has almost doubled in price over the last 2 years I've owned it

I got my licence when I was 20, so been riding on the roads 8 years, my first bike on the road was a Suzuki rgv r 250 2 stroke, then went on to a cr500, that was an animal! And all ways had motocross bikes! The ninja looks a weapon bob, love the old school bikes as much as the new ones!

Fetching good money them RGVs it's the one between bob the slab sider was just before and there fetching some dollar too now. Think its a case of seeing what will be expensive in 10-20 years and the rgv is one of them

Thats the thing , my dad has about 12 old british bikes and theve shot up over the last 10 years but his generation is slowing down on bike buying and the next will take over. Its getting in before the nostalger rush. I mean who expected mk1 and 2 escorts to be fetching 40k ??
