Pure madness !

Feb 23, 2020,01:03 AM

All the bikes, except for the one at the end ( same as on the second pic) have over 200 hp.

The world has gone mad, in normal circumstances i would celebrate this but since there seem to be more speedtraps than common sense in my home country all i can do is weep.

Offcourse i’m not weeping all the time, riding one of these beauties is pure fun, best you can do is ride it with no license plate attached to it ;-)..... .

The 959 Panigale only has 150 hp ... only 😂.
But i do like the looks of it, if i buy it i don’t think i will ride it that much, only to visit some clients and not for the occasional country ride as i’m sure i will end up in jail.

Things could be soo much more simple:

Check out this NOS 1994 Honda CBR 600 .... 90 hp.

And this barely used 1996 Superlight ... 75 hp and soo much fun to ride.

Now the only problem is to find one ofnthese old gems for myself, the two above are owned by friends so i get to ride em if i want to..

I used to ‘hate’ MV because they looked like the 916 but now i know better. Next to Ducati and many others another fabulous Italian brand. Never sell it !

Pocket rockets! [nt]

But people are heavier nowadays as well

That evens things out doesn’t it? And driving without license plates is ill-advised; cops see it straight away Better drive with plate nicked from your grumpy neighbor

I got heavier as well.

A sign of getting old i guess, as well as my longing for older stuff 😁. When i was ‘young’ i took off the plate more than once for several weeks, at one point there was a police car behind me and they didn’t even notice it .... or they didn’t bother 😁. Th...

With age comes wisdom At least that’s what they say coz I turned 30 (with 30 years experience) and still waiting for the wisdom to reveal itself

When i was 30 ...

That yellow Superlight is my favorite.

 By: bimbeano : February 23rd, 2020-04:21
I once owned one briefly .... next to my CBR.

Wow, I didn't know that. [nt]

1996 Superlight 👌....

 By: Cpt Scarlet : February 23rd, 2020-02:50
Superb and all the power you realistically need to have fun.

True .... 75 hp should be enough.

My Scrambler 800 had 66 whp and was tuned to an astonishing 72 whp, but the engine got a lot more fluid and easy to control now. The sound with the open ( i threw away the db-killer) ZARD exhaust might be a bit over the top but it’s soo much fun now. It i...

And that sounds like fun. Love the photo.

916 SPS

 By: milwatch1 : May 11th, 2020-11:26
Ducati make some beautiful bikes. I used to own a 916 SPS, insane power, noise. A real beast it was. Lord knows what a Panigale supeleggera is like.

Back in the 90ies...

.... i used to ride my best friends’ 916 SPS on several occasions , as well as other examples from another friend owning the store . They were very fast compared to anything else on the road. Back in 2014 or so i took out a 1199 Panigale on the streets. M...

In today’s politically correct climate I wouldn’t bet on loosing 60.000 Euros because I coincidentally took my Alpine up to speeds of over 200 km/h. Loosing my 35K Megane would already be sad enough .... but loosing a 10K Clio or Ducati would be ‘acceptab...
