Was in Ducati Glasgow yesterday getting a new rear tyre for the gixxer and saw this .... my jaw dropped! - A second hand gixxer 600 that someone had traded in for a Ducati .......




..it was virtually new ..with 105 miles on the clock! - 105 miles! Why!? Why would you do that!?

They also had the new Panigale R's in........ 26,500! Ouch! ...and they have sold loads of them apparently. I asked if Panigale owners were trading their standard and 'S' models in for them ..... I was told - 'No, some buyers are buying tem to add to their existing Panigale sitting in their garage!

Nice ! That's going to be a real 'mile-muncher'. Looking good for what must be about a 15 yr old bike ?

That must be eight bikes now ? ...You are going to need a bigger garage! Lol!

yes, it is my eight one

Really a big great bike. Not really easy if you want to go fast on bends...

Now i am starting to set up it perfectly (new shock, new forcks, new brakes, etc...)

not only a motorway cruiser.

You can be very fast on small roads too (if you are not a beginner and if you have ice in your blood )

We were out again on Sunday ..dodging the showers again....Because of the weather to the west we had to head north east ..for a run up the A93 past the Spittal of Glenshee to Braemar ...


Filling up first thing ...this lovely wee Frog-eyed Sprite pulled into the garage behind me.




A tank of gas later found us refuelling in Blairgowrie ....When I say 'us' there were nine bikes out on the run ...

30 000 miles.

full BHP

it is an immaculate bike. I must change the chain, and for me the rear shock
and prepare the fork and the front brakes. And after this bike will be perfect...

The name of the ZZR is Casimir ( a sweet monster of an old french children tv show )

You will turn in an R1 club, not a GSXR club
