  2. Ooops..... Sorry. I thought for a moment that the subject heading was a NAFFI thread...
    Carry on.
     
  3. Good effort to the fella.................

    Early twenties, first time rider, post tour soldier, with his "Secondary occupation (Royal)" with his postcode, a blackbird between his legs, body coursing full of testosterone..................... I'd laugh him off the phone if I worked for direct line

    Big fan of the bloke but I'm putting some cash on an early demise or at least a driving licence holiday for HRH :D
     
  4. I've never ridden a sports bike but I wonder just how much of the performance you can use safely on a public road. My guess is that it peters out somewhere about a CBR600 - beyond that even on a dry empty road you are beyond 10/10ths if you use all the potential. Fully comp on him will be the price of the bike, plus.
     
  5. Personally I resent being tricked into visiting this topic under false pretences with a title that promises so much but delivers a message completley different to what it offered / what I was expecting ! :D

  6. As much as you like.
    When Prince William passed his test he took himself off to the Isle of Man TT if I remember rightly. Perfectly legal to go as fast as you like and damned good fun.
     
  7. Ah ha DB, I too came in looking to relive some of the time I spent in the

    Caribbean as a young squaddie. Nassau, Kingston, Georgetown and

    British Honduras. Still, I enjoy motorbikes as well, so I'm not short

    changed. Good on him....he looks the boy for the part. Just keep those

    feckin reporters away.
     
  8. Well done , Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.

    Unfortunately you are right there - one of our lad’s funeral is next Friday.
     
  10. I got caught as well. I was expecting something more interesting than a motor bike.

  12. MSR, I envy you old son........but you have shown us your willie before.

    Seriously, good on you. There is nothing like it is there? :D :D
     
  13. A great bike but a very bad choice as a first bike, not because of the power, more because it has a dual braking system that will catch him out when he gets on anything else.
