    NEC bike show

    I went to the bike show at the NEC yesterday .
    loadsa bikes to look at ,but the star of the show for me is the tuono 1100 . some of the accessories for it are a bit salty tho .
    926. + vat for rear sets ( aprilia by DHM )
    ducati 1200 s monster very nice too as is the new Yamaha MT 10 .

    All in all don t think I will bother next year 20 t get in and 12 t park the car , and if you book on line you have to pay a fookin rip off booking fee 1.,50 .
    3 tickets = 3 x booking fee,s = fook you next year . I,ll go to the excel show in feb instead !!!!!



    although I did buy a 440 helmet for 299 . I suppose it softens the blow a bit !!!

    I was going to go to see the 2016 fireblade as its due replacement (usually every 4 years) but they haven't done it but instead launched some crap 500's instead so Honda have cocked up in my opinion as there's a new Suzuki and Kwac

    I went to Jim Allen's in Falkirk and looked at the 1100 factory, they even offered me a test on it. Glad I saved the money not going to the show ��

    I ken mucker, keep looking at other machines but love my Tuoldo. Had a go oan a few IL4s this year, quite nice if you're feeling lazy as you can leave them in a high gear but nothing has the excitement of the rotax engine when battering down the b roads
