@HOSBUSA got a pic of that 550 b-king, my technician mate dave needs inspiration for his, he's putting 348 out at the moment
Here you go, photos by me and taken at Santa Pod.
I believe Sean at BigCC had a hand in this. Everyone who knows bike turbo's knows Sean.
It has 550 bhp at the rear wheel.
I don't know if the owner or the bike are still around.
He is 6 foot 7" tall and name of Steve.
Technical and tyres
I had a similar problem on my old marauder, bought it from a mate with the problem, changed chain and sprockets and it was fine
You ain't obviously seen my ol' witch cos then you'd realise it's not good to look at her from a distance never mind up close on the rare occasion we're bumping uglies.
So definitely not wanting to watch any re-run of that very short film.
Remember guys , it's a race and there's no points for coming second.
This is it - there are less than 24 hours before the World Superbike weekend at Phillip Island and the start of MCN's 2015 Fantasy Road Race! Be there at the beginning by competing in the "Two Wheels Good" league (PIN #19394), and in addition to bragging rights, maybe you'll win a little somethin' else. Enjoy the season, and see you at the chequered flag!
Legal and insurance
I've been with them for years and have no problems. Their European breakdown cover is excellent also which is included in the premium, which is why they probably don't appear to be the cheapest quote sometimes but I've had reason to use it twice and the call-out was quick. Can't remember how long I've been with them but it must be 10 years at least.
Touring & travel
Buying and selling
Mine is 2004 vintage and I must admit although I have been tempted by new shiny things I have never actually got to the point of trading it in. Now it's done 45,000 miles and still feels like a spring chicken there again for me it does everything.
Okay 170 is out of the question but hey who needs that sort of speed. It's comfortable up to 3 tanks worth of fuel and will happily tonk along at 90 all day.
Have fun they are great bikes
