Hayabusa Update
I’ve not posted about my Hayabusa for sometime and as it is my main go to bike I feel this is a little unfair!!

So I was working hard to reduce the amount of bikes in the garage…………….. and then I accidentally buy a TRX850.


No.19 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa Mark 1

While in my local Triumph and Yamaha Dealer I noticed a Black Stealth Hayabusa for sale. I asked the salesman I knew what was a less than 6 month old Suzuki doing in a Triumph and Yamaha dealer. He said that the chap had brought it and only done under 1000 miles and then part exchanged it for a Kawasaki Vulcan (Why they had a Kawasaki in the Triumph and Yamaha dealer is another question) The thought of this Hayabusa sat at the back of my mind for a while.

I was then asked to go to a wedding in Austria, some of my friends were going to fly out for a week and some for only the weekend. I had just started seeing a girl called…

No. 18 Triumph Speed Triple 955i

After getting a cracking part exchange offer I brought a brand new Triumph Triple, this was the new model for 2002, which had the better styling on the seat unit, and a bit more power. This bike was brilliant and I loved its pull and handling. Unfortunately I did bin this bike. I had arranged to meet a girl biker that was a bit of a blind date. She had a 600 Monster which she kept outside, the bike was only 2 years old but it was an absolute wreak.

The date went ok but I never did see her again. However I set off home but there was a large roundabout a few hundred yards from where I had parked. It was the 16th November…



Ok avid reader (you know who you are!) Heef’s sad Blog will be taking a short break while I go to a secret testing facility to try the 2011 Kawasaki range, I was picked for my exciting riding style after I was spotted at a Cadwell track day! ……… Oh wasn’t I meant to mention that! Sorry.

Talking of track days if you look in Bike Magazine (November Edition) you will see a photo of me with one of my bikes. A prize to the first person to guess which one is me!! (Bladebert can’t enter as his photo is there too!) So I’ll speak to you all after my 2 week Holiday…….…
