    sp50 in a car, 2008 bike, thats 100+bhp and 600cc... and hes 21 and male... oh and a woman reversed into him.. hes had the bike a year now, previous 250cc was owned for 2, so its a big jump up. Last time his insurance quote was 2200 and we got it reduced to £1000 so hopefully i can do the same again
    21, male and 600c... Yup, that'd do it, lol.

    I love the ninjas, but the amount of lowering i need to do means it will take time. and i need to keep this bike for longer than 12months.

    I only like sports so no option really... what i really really want is a S1000RR... thats sex on wheels..

    To be fair, I'm only 5'6'', so I'm pretty limited myself as to what I can ride comfortably. So you're not alone lol.

    But those 4 inches would make an enormous difference to me.. to start with i'd be able to reach the top shelf of my father tools without getting someone else to stand on something to get them..i'd be able to stand on something and reach lol. But it was never going to stop me getting a bike
