You going on the Mayday run?

PS the GPZ thing is ugly rofl

That's no threat Cabbie, that'll just encourage me to leave it so you do come round, your do a much better job than me! Laughing

Mayday is a definite as long as it's not raining, just can't decide weather to take the Ninja or the XR?

The GPZ is just a quick money spinner mate and to use for commuting for a short while, infact it's already up for sale as from yesterday!!!

I'd have kept it, but then I'm a shortarse.
Looks a nice find; hope it goes to a considerate owner.

That's the main problem with it yammydave, i'm just under 6ft and weigh over 16 stone, when i get on this Ninja it disappears up me arse!
I hope it goes to a good home too, the past 3 owners have obviously cherished this bike, when i first see it i couldn't believe it was almost 25yrs old.

the GPz was awesome when it first came out.

redifined the middle weight market in the same way that the CBR6 did later on. As a school kid it was a poster on my wall... I waited years to ride one...then I did...

How right you are mate but (as you know) they handle quite well (for their age) and they have a great little motor for use in the city and built up areas, it's just a shame their so small in size because i'd definitely keep it for commuting if it was a bit bigger.

Yeah I'm just a sucker for the old shite. Smile
I keep looking at Z650s (had 3) and though I realise just how totally inadequate it would be now, can't help myself.

Well can you Adam and Eve it, i've actually managed to get some money together and the last few bits for my Blade!
I got my wheels back from the sprayer who done a wicked job and got my tyres fitted yesterday. The new air filter, iridium plugs, Dzus fairing fixings and pimpy grips are all on their way so with luck and a fair wind it could be up and running by next weekend. Already been sweet talking Masterblade and the guru is gonna cast an eye over it Tues/Weds.... Fingers crossed eyebrow

Cheers lads, it is a great feeling when you hear it come it life, i have to thank Masterblader again, without him here it wouldn't have happened.

It's not quite finished, it's only a handful of silly little things now like re-bleeding the brakes putting in all new fluids (brake, oil, coolant, water) then putting the last few cosmetics on and that's about it.
The rest of the bits i can do while it's complete like rear sets and carbon/billet pimpy bits.
