Welcome back !  Good to hear all is well in the land of Banger Racing, (speaking of which, a lot of what you see HERE may seem strangely familiar).

I eagerly await pics of the finished Lambo !  Check is as circumstances allow .  .  .

Hello,

It's been a while, I notice a few of the old crowd are still here that may remember me. Hope you're all well.

Winter over here so the cars and bikes don't get out, although I did get out for a short ride on the VFR last weekend, blimey it was cold.

Nothing to do on the cars in storage apart from maintain the batteries and pop over to start them from time to time. It's Lambo's 50th anniversary this year so hoping to get to the celebrations in the Urraco.

I still have a thing for bikes.....

Since my last visit, this arrived.



It's another Bimota! This time a YB10, fitted with a Yamaha FZR1000 EXUP engine. Low miles and limited production run.




This turned up a few months later.



A Bimota YB6, fitted with a Yamaha FZR100 (pre-EXUP) engine




Along with this...





A Bimota YB8, fitted with a Yamaha FZR100 EXUP engine

 


A couple of my bikes appeared in a bike magazine. 22 bikes got together for a free trackday and photo shoot.







Catch you, hopefully sooner than another 6 months  Cool

Hello everyone, hope your all well.

I'll have a look around the site later to see what's been going on and what people have been upto  Grin

I've been very busy, working away for months at a time, but things are now getting better.

The weathers starting to get better over here now so the bikes and cars will be coming out. I'll have to get the Urraco out for some pictures when it's back on the road after it's winter hibernation.

I've still got all the bikes, plus a new one. Have been out for a few rides this year, but not many.

This time I've gone for a brand new bike, rather than the old Bimotas.

I took four of my Bimotas to the Manchester Bike show to go on the Bimota stand. We managed to get 17 together, which is the biggest gathering we know about.





The new bike is a 3 cylinder triple, 800cc, MV Agusta F3 (italian again). They have traction control, quickshifter, 4 engine maps (one custom programmable - engine breaking, throttle response, etc), slipper clutch, fly-by-wire throttle (with two injectors per cylinder), counter rotating crank (only seen on motogp bikes), etc. what a bike!!!

Welcome back !  Great addition to the family.  The new MV sounds like a purpose-built machine.  Awesome .  .  .

Welcome back and congrats on the beautiful MV Agusta!  That Bimota gathering must've been fun.

I was just thinking about you (not in a weird way) the other day! Love the MV Agusta! I was looking at those last week, I didn't realize they were so expensive! Holy cow! They only ones I found were between $22-$30k.

I may be making a thread of my own very shortly which I hope you will approve of.... (yes, that is a hint) Smiley

Wow that is a very nice bike! I love how the exhaust ends and compliments the curve of the tire. Nice to see you back

Dang, RBNA, why do you have to leave us hanging like that?
