    The original 600 Fazer used a detuned Thundercat engine. A logical progression would be that the FZ6 engine would be a retuned/detuned R6. If so your enquiry could be widened to include them.

    The fun factor makes up for the risk, though, especially when you're younger. The princess would love me to get one, as she LOVES going fast on the back of bikes (and she'd probably look quite good in leathers), and gets silly-excited on bikes, but it's not likely to happen.

    If Del is up for a bit of an adrenaline rush how about a tandem paramotor flight?

    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    That looks like a good way to find whether this is for you, and prices look reasonable. I'd give it a go
