All winter I’ve been beating myself up about having three bikes and barely enough dosh to run one. I change my mind from day to day as to which one I should sell first in order to finance my riding in 2012.
At the moment my Gixxer 6 is in pole position for the chop but when I fire her up I wonder WHY? She is so eager to get out there – barks like a good un and is so-o light to wheel around.
She will be a tough sell in more ways than one —
These first two photos are from the warm roads of Croatia – so easy to get lost —
But fettling her in the open air was a pleasure —
and playing the fool on a cool hilltop after lunch at a village inn was fun —
This baby can fly and has some trick bits to help keep her in check —
including some meaty Galpher discs as the originals warped far too easily.
I do like the ABM top yoke – another expense I hadn’t allowed for but my early attempts to modify the original left it looking like a school workshop project —
It had to be a top of the range Supersprox sprocket and ‘O’ ring chain that went in when I lowered the gearing —
H-mmm — I DO like her —
a LOT —
Maybe I should forget about selling her and do the Lottery instead 🙂
