  1. Naked vs Faired
    In 1900 when young men rode push bikes they where attracted to the early motorcycles because they went faster than the pedal version , if this was not so we would all be looking at ct90’s and BSA Bantams . Fairings are one of the things that help a bike to go faster ..longer ..to take a fairing off a modern bike is like converting your 500 OHV to a SV . When you strip all the B/S away it comes down to going fast , I confess , that is, what I love about motorbikes

    Ps I suspect we all do ?

    • So you subscribe to Hunter S Thompson’s analysis “Faster, Faster, Until The Thrill Of Speed Overcomes The Fear Of Death”? I’d say a few of us have been there if we’re honest!

  2. Faster Faster Faster ! is what I yell at the petrol cap of my old Es2 when I had my helmet touching the triple clamp, my right wrist in a anti clockwise cramp ,eyes on the speedo hoping to register 75 mph at the bottom of Dunlops hill before suffering the humiliation of cresting the hill at 35 mph . These are the lessons that make us love speed and motorcycling .

    Ps Can’t wait to ride with with the boys to the races .

  3. Jules,
    I wasn’t aware of the release of this bike and am slightly surprised! Last weekend, a new IAM member came along for an assessment and she was riding a new 750 which looked identical (colours ‘n all) to the 800 in the video. Is the 750 being phased out?

    I must say that it was a great – looking bike in the flesh.
