It had the nickname of being the only cruiser that GSXR riders approved of.

    Ah yes! A beautiful machine! Narrow for the horsepower as I recall. And I always loved those scoops on the sides of the tank, they really gave it that “Jet Fighter”, appeal!

    Unfortunately I never had chance to ride one.

    Actually had a commission for a Ducati 916 from a friend of a friend. I wouldn't mind doing this for a living.

    I have finally found the photos of the model train station I made about 8 years ago. I’ve got like 70 pictures of it, so I’ll only post one here, so I won’t highjack your entire thread! I’ll start another thread about it elsewhere.

    Love those Ducati’s by the way, I lusted over the 996 in the showroom for hours! Our man John Fogarty won World Superbike championship on one for 7 years! It was a privilege to watch him race.

    Super stuff !!

    However , my mind works in an odd way and the thread title had me thinking of when I attended Cockpitfest at Newark a few yrs ago.
    One of the Newcastle lads from a museum (aviation one ) was there ,with an Auster I think (cockpit)
    He told us how one day a young man with a camera bag asked him (he was volunteering that day) if he could take a few pictures on models on the plane wings ?
    They were by the model section I believe ,when the question was posed , so he said 'Sure '!!
    A while later , he noticed a couple of well made up girls with American tunics and skirts, stocking came in and draped themselves over the wings of 2 of the exhibits whilst matey took some -artistic posed shots !!
    Plenty of suspender and bra on show too

    Unfortunately the man in charge buggered them off ,as soon as he realised what was going on !!



    Carry on the great work , models with a difference
    I only ride 'em, I don't know what makes 'em work

    I absolutely loved my moto-cross in the mid eighties, but by god I'm paying the price. Replaced discs in back and neck, need new knees, etc. etc. Mind I had a go on a full race spec 900 Fireblade and the first thing I said when I got off was...feel my chest. My heart was beating like a kodo drum. The acceleration was unbelievable.....hats off to the guys who race these....awesome.

    I have to admit I didn't know much about it but some reading and a few YouTube vids and I can tell it would certainly give ones bowels a challenge to stay in tact. 1000cc supercharged 310 horse power, recipe for naughtiness. There's a video on YouTube of one put on the road, somewhere it was never meant to go. Thank god mad bikers are still out there.

    I've been on a bit of a Ducati vibe, sporting thourghbreds and iconic styling. The original 916, a modern classic, the 1199 Panigali, superb ride and very desirable. Then there's the 888 World Superbike racer, forerunner to Carl Foggarty's 916 world beating 916 and finally the Desmosedici, 2004 version in the late Nicky Hayden's trim.
