I love the look of the engine, I would like the frame stretched a bit, and a shaft instead of a chain..but that is just nit picking, what year is it and did you get a really good deal..I have heard that the insurance can be a bit high..

I think the new cost is about the same as the new Vmax which is too rich for me.

Having said all of that I would be proud to own one..

Wow a V twin with over 800ccs per pot, that is only just run in and hardly any extra insurance and a great buy as well..I hope you get a lot of very happy miles from it..Is that headlight original?

Cracking looking bike mate. I know someone that has one and he is a fecking lunatic on it. He has done something with the pipes and it really does sound good. One of the best looking bikes around. Hope you enjoy it.

Mate in the office a few doors down had one. The whole building vibrated when he started it up.

Simply stunning bikes.

First Impressions

fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..................c..........gigg le giggle

Gotta say i'm impressed with the bike , everytime i looked down at the speedo it was way over what i thought i was doing

Can't see me licence lasting too long , its so deceptive how quickly it just digs in an fucks off , Overtaking Cars is absolutley fun then yer look in the mirrors and see the speck in the distance you just overtook .

Bars are a bit low for me but i'll get used to em , looks like a fuck load of grief to change em for summit else . Seat is nice an comfortable , might be a cunt to clean its a sort of seude type covering .

Exhaust Noise well it still seems quiet after me Harley

Last but least the Brakes............................Fuck me they are scary on the front

I'm happy

Obligitory Pic Outside me Local Shot

I like these a lot. If Yam had thought to name it something more, err, interesting than MT01 they might have had the "brand" product they tried to make it.
Word of the grapevine seems to be that no bugger wants to pay list price for 'em so discounts a pleanty; but no showroom can keep a used one of the floor for more than 5 mins - sounds like you bagged yerself a bit o' a bargain there.

Spent a Day with Dave Sausages last weekend between us we made this for me bike as no one makes a decent rack . well actually you can bu two types

Ones rated at 5 kgs the other at 6 kgs , thats the max load they can carry

Useful if yer carrying a few bags of sugar i suppose

Oh yer the cheap one is near 90 the dearer one is around 180

fuck that ,this cost me 55 including the metal , gas to weld it and the powdercating
