when i was taking a demo earlier yesterday i blipped the throttle and the front wheel just lifted up all by itself! I'm gonna have some fun with this I think.Rincewind said:.... the Speed Triple is a hoot to ride, you may spend most of it on the back wheel tho :lol: !
Enjoy the beastie!
My last bike was a cbr600fy. Great bike but expensive to drop with all that plastic. Had an indicated 175mph a couple of times too!mattyfab said:My dad wont let me have a bike (even though im 21) cos he thinks i'll ride it the same as my motoX bike when I raced them
Nice bike though pal, ive been looking into doing the direct access course and getting a 600cc bike such as a CBR600 or Kwak ZX6R.
Be careful though, car drivers dont seem to be able to see bike riders coming most of the time.
They dont as standard! Had a race pipe fitted.mattyfab said:Blimey, didnt realise they went THAT fast.
As I have said the speedo is inacurate so probably no where near 175 in real speed. However the "FY" has longer gearing than the sport so is capable of going faster at the expense of acceleration. Don't know bout the "FX".robbo sps said:My 600CBR FX has been dyno'd at 111.4 bhp which is very good.
I wont see 175 even on a track, but a very good bike.
But that power is very high in the rev's
What would it be like to have that at say 5000 rpm, like a CBR 1100 Balckbird!!
As in make it go quicker or have more torque? Cool. I'll wait till it is run in first I think!robbo sps said:A dealer can re-mapp the engine, FOC regularly for what ever you want to do with it !!
Should be on dry land now till Just before Christmas I think so I am looking forward to a hot, dry summer. I love driving me car tho so it will always be a dilema as to what I should go off in/on! lol Guess I'm pretty lucky so shall deffinately make the most of it. :beerchugGas-Axe said:Spend it while you've got it and can enjoy it Pete - there's a nice long summer ahead of us - presuming you'll be on terra-firma?
it did but i'm coping quite well with the hardship of breathing fresh air, looking at the sunshine, eating fresh food, drinking more than 3 cans of beer a night, sleeping in a big bed, sleeping in my own room, having internet etc.... Oh how tough it is for you surface dwellers, I don't know how you all cope! lol :lol: :lol:Gas-Axe said:Good stuff Pete - bet you're looking foward to it! :beerchug
Does it take a little getting used to natural daylight?
Yes you could use the word "gradually". I think "Excessively" fits better tho! lol :beerchugGas-Axe said:Hahaha very good Pete! Gradually increasing your alcohol intake now then? :beerchug
Jixaman said:Mad mad bike... How are you out though ??? The weather is crap !!! The Gixxer is still wrapped up in a blanket on the paddock stands...I used to ride all year round before I got a car, so a bit of rain or snow is not a bother!
I'll generally ride on sunny days but if I get the urge I dont care what the weatherman says.
Anyway when the roads are slippy you can have scary fun at low speeds, snaking the tail up the road and sliding round roundabouts!
