Sorry Scotty Billinom8s just shared!
Ahem, yes, my first ever session at Llandow :oops: An unfortunate combination of the slight rise in the track near the start of the home straight, 2nd gear, and full throttle, and Armageddon was upon me in the blink of an eye :shock:
On subsequent visits, 3rd gear was deployed there and when getting it just right it was possible to wheelie half way along the straight...

Bit late to this thread but just wanted to say cracking looking bike ( the Gixxer not the crashed Kawasaki) not going to get any jokes from me have owned 2 over the last decade and we’re great bikes. And not a hedge or gay love experiance anywhere in sight.

What I didn’t see is what Gixxer is it. Looks like a K7 1000cc but can only see one exhaust so thinking it might be a K9 / L0 600 or 750?????

Having sold the same model at the start of the year I can say with great confidence that that bike is a total weapon and goes like stink. Found it so confidant and planted. The only real reason I sold mine was it was so capable I needed to be doing warp speed to get a smile on my face. And trust me when I say warp speed is totally possible on that thing.

I trust that as it’s a single exhaust it’s been dyno’ed. Is so bet the furling is like silk? Mine used to pull from about 2500 revs. Was amazing.
