And, perversely, am now fancying something like an xr125 do it all economical work horse. :lol:
Don't.
I bought an almost new one off eBay for 1500 notes. Fantastic little thing, but if you have other bikes available it'll never get used once the novelty wears off. ;)

Re: Anyone had Fireblade ('99) ?

Thanx all, It's a straight bike from a mate who's had it from new ( known him 20 years and I never knew he owned one til now !). Price is mentally good but It'll have to pass the ULEZ Nox test if I'm to use it. I'll check it over next weekend. Looks like all I'll be needing is a 17 in the front........

Re: Anyone had Fireblade ('99) ?

That's what I'm talkin about, my old 600 has done 170 plus thousand without even a sneeze. This blade has 30000 on it, and for the money I'll be happy if it gets to 100,000 with out major surgery and only consumables.

Thanx.

Re: Anyone had Fireblade ('99) ?

Cheers Bob, ain't spoken to him for ages !

I was across the top of Bristol both Thursday and Yesterday to Cardiff again. I remember what you said about meeting up, but with the Pandemic I couldn't afford to catch your accent. I think it's still 14 days quarantine for that in London ? :D :D :D

Anyone had Fireblade ('99) ?

I'm replacing one of my tired old work bike's and don't want to use one of my nice ones really. I've been offered a low milage blade that may fit the bill.
Any owners here with tips or stories to tell ?
(only downside I can see so far is the shell suit colour of it !) ;)

Re: Stella Alpina 2020 cancelled

Probably a wise decision.
Poor old Bardonecchia is like a wild west boarder town when the Stella crowd hit the main drag. The locals have enough to worry about without an influx of humans from all over Europe !
Always another year and the mountain isn't moving any time soon. ;)
