  1. Telemetry has been released by Lambo for the run - amazing aero, sticky Tyres and heroic driving seem to be the order of the day!
  2. can't believe I missed out on this opportunity!!
  3. Incoming MT09 (2017)

    Basically I didn't write what I thought I wrote in the original post - meant to say the pair was for me plus the university mate I did my direct access course with, the matching plates were a good idea after some bottles of red wine at the pub one evening lol!
  4. Incoming MT09 (2017)

    After much faffing about on my part finally went down the Yamaha route and picked up this pair of beauties at the weekend - with 35kg less and 40bhp more than what I was learning on, its quite quick and the quickshifter is pretty cool too! Looking forward to getting some miles and experience under my belt - fingers crossed for nice weather and not too much time spent abroad
  5. MT-10

    Dude - that is brilliant, kind of pisses on my incoming MT09 thread I was about to post
  6. Almost a new biker....

    To be fair its not much over 400 when I'm sat on it lol
  7. Almost a new biker....

    That was not entirely my fault, there was A LOT of alcohol involved and someone has switched around the goped front/rear brake levers!
  8. Slovakiaring : 1st - 3rd Sept '17

    I already feel like this is a slippery slope lol! Dates being investigated.....
  9. Almost a new biker....

    Get ready for an incoming bike thread, less than 1 month to go.....
  10. Slovakiaring : 1st - 3rd Sept '17

    Tell me more!
  11. Almost a new biker....

    Yes please dude - have just been on the phone to firm up a quote but gave up due to the absolute bell end on the phone at MCE. Had literally already gone home for the day in his head, couldn't be bothered to go through the quote details and said "you got zero bonus, the cost is the cost init".
  12. Almost a new biker....

    Good point, my dad's with MCE - will give them a go Am going a bit round in circles tbh, still haven't found time to test the MT07/09 - actually thats not strictly true as I did almost get a date booked but the dealer sold their 2016 demo bikes! Now waiting for the new ones to arrive. I go from MT07/09, then thinking the new Street Triple, then thinking get a deal the old Street Triple, to thinking the new ST-R has loads of new bits, then get big insurance quotes, then go back to the Yamaha's MT09 for punch and 07 for sensible - except I think the 7 feels too small just sitting on it not going anywhere!
  13. Almost a new biker....

    cheers for the linky - £1,100 with 600 excess - for the 9, getting better
  14. Almost a new biker....

    Just found one company, Lexham who have the 2017 MT09 on their underwriters system and they want £1,400 GBP (garaged with abus lock+ground anchor, no commuting, 3k miles a year)
  15. Almost a new biker....

    After the technical fluff up that was the Street Triple live launch I've looked at the specs and the middle model, the 'R', seems to be the one that gets most of the new trick bits - its also going to be at least £9k (the base model S is 8k). The other challenge at the moment is that neither the new Street Triple, nor the 2017 MT07/09 are on the insurance underwriters list yet - so currently unable to get any quotes until "the system" catches up (tried online with, Devitt, Bennetts and called the last two directly). Understandable for the Triumph as its only just been announced, but for the Yamaha's there are physical bikes in dealers to ride off on today - any ideas how to get round this insurance problem or know anyone who can quote?
