    Newbie UK

    Good Evening. Picking up my Tuono on Saturday, it's a gen1 04 and my second fighter. My first was taken from me after just 6 months but thats another story.
    Been riding mainly v twin sports bikes from a Honda Firestorm through to tl1000s's. Spent the last 3 years on a Hayabusa, which is currently up for sale on ebay.
    Been a great bike took us round Europe twice and with a few trackdays thrown in.
    I live in West Sussex and if time permits will try get the bike on the track this year. I tend to do all my own work on the bikes as i have had some bad experiences with so called mechanics. So i may need to pick some brains occasionally. The tuono doesn't seem to suffer any great faults unlike the tl1000s's i have owned.
    My riding is mainly 2 up and off to see or do something but i don't mind the odd blast. I do occasionally arrange trips out and we have just come back from the Somme.

    Thanks for the welcome. I am getting rid of the Busa as i really only get enough time to ride 1 bike. After the loss of my 1st fighter and that particular series of events i am the complete opposite of a hoarder.
    I don't really like owning very much at all and basically have my clothes, bike and push bike plus a few other bits. Much prefer minimal.
    Also i am constantly fighting the csa due to a greedy ex wife and the less i have the less they can take.....nothing is registered in my name its easier that way if you know what i mean.
    So unfortunatley the Busa has to go. Checkout the listing on ebay, spread the word if i can get 3K for it i'll be happy

    Welcome to the forum. Bike does look nice & in good condition.
    Mate of mine had a Busa and could throw it around quite well, but it took it out of him. He's got a Triumph Ex now
