  1. As some of you know my restrictions are up in a couple of months and I have been looking at a few diferent bikes...at every opportunity anybody I cornered would get asked for opinions or suggestions of posible candidates. I have signed up to basically every owners forum there is doing my research..and after seriously mulling over the VFR-800 and the Blackbird...I chose the Blackbird...the head said VFR the heart said Blackbird...and lets face it buying a bike is all about emotion as well as practicality :grin:

    I got a deal on the bike that was to good to refuse so she will sit in the garage for a couple of months till im legit...but thats ok the anticipation will make riding here evn more sweet!

    So here are some pics of my new baby

    Honda CBR1100XX Blackbird
    2003 Model
    Black with Staintunes(no baffles...fcuk me it's loud after the Hornet)

  4. Nice work mate! My restrictions come off June 6, I have been told the 675 will be available for me to buy anytime between june 7-end of june (depending on customs, triumph getting bike to my dealer)
