Cheers to your spring. Ps. How many miles are you getting from a tank of juice?


'It's all your fault Kamchat' - It usually is!

Nice looking gixxer! ..Is that the 750? ....... Congrats on the new ride ..you won't be disappointed...great bikes. Enjoy.

As for 'miles to a tank' ?...that really depends on the type of riding .... normally I would expect the fuel light to go on after about 100/110 miles or so ..with roughly another 25 miles left to empty. On a 'spirited' ride the light will come on after only 70/80 miles though. So I guess if you take it easy I could probably stretch 140 miles out of a tank .... alternatively I could guzzle it all in less than 90.

It's all your fault Kamchat!



Yep! It's the 750. Good deals in Oz at the moment free on road cost etc. a mates got one and supa happy with it so took the plunge. Bit freaky after having a GSX1400 and haven't had a sports bike since the days of the Katana 750. Been riding today and loven the responsiveness. 80 miles out of a tank!! That's some good riding. But like I said if it wasn't for you and Sarah I'd probably be still plugging away on the 1400. Hopefully the pic works this time.

The country side in your pics BuBu looks magnificent whether its snow or green fields or coast. I'm jealous. It's getting a cold where I am.
