Ivor, you would not believe the cost of living here......makes me thing twice about really twisting the throttle as gas is never under $4.00 per gallon. Other than that, the 14R seems to like its new home.

56 years young and I ride an extremely nasty CBR900RR and still leaping tall(ish) buildings with my CR250R MXER.
Never too old to feel the need for speed and/or living on the edge!

Hmmmm? mind of a 4 year old?? Sounds about right!

Speed kills play safe and buy a Honda!

Sounds like you need to move; that's how it sounds...

Located a nice 2009 with 9000kms ( about 5500 miles ) on it for $7200... Kawa green...going to check it Tuesday. Very excited. I've been looking for a black one but with this low millage for the price, I can get it painted next spring if I don't like it...

Wish me luck old timers !
