    The R1 is a great bike..... but it's setup more for the track then the road... a few of my friends have them....

    The R1 has an aggressive riding position... and the clutch starts to smell if you are going at very slow speed for a long time... which is very rare.

    Hey Sazook,
    How did you like Donington Park?

    The Craner Cuves are scary huh?

    One track I would love to run is Brands Hatch.

    Nothing but twists and turns. Another one is Cadwell Park.

    I used to race till I totalled my GSXR-600. Now I just do trackdays.


    Here is me at ButtonWillow:

    @Jehanzeb

    Sweet pic.....

    Really like "Donington", the most heart racing moments for me were the "chicane" (also know as the Esses) before the pits and "Redgate"

    Everyone anchors on the brakes and you see speeds from 160mph to 40mph in a matter of seconds.. seen a rider missed his line and headed for the "Melbourne Hairpin" (which was closed....ouch)

    I'll be a Donington in May, after I retun back prom a holiday in Pak...

    haven't done "Brands" or "Cadwell Park".... maybe this year.

    It's mostly track days and road for me... not race....family goes nutz

    Hey SaZook,
    I hear ya....same grief from my family as well.

    I just pretend I am riding slow

    The GSXR-1K must be a beast after the 600.

    I love the Silver paint with the black frame on your model.

    Allright, good luck with your trip to Lahore.

    BTW, ignore the jealous comments

    Jehanzeb and SaZook,

    It is great to see you guys pursuing your passion of motorcycling. I am a bit of a motorcycle entusiast myself also, but only from a distance .

    I was wondering if you guys could let me know what would be the price of a 250cc bike, model around 2003, in UK? My brother, who was living in the UK for the past 9 years, is moving back to Pakistan by April 2007, inshAllah, and I was thinking of importing a basic-level bike for myself.

    My budget is 500 pounds (I shall take care of the import duties separately). I have been checking out eBay, but have not been able to find any 250cc. All bikes quoted there are generally around 400cc and above, and hence in the price range of 700 pounds and upwards.

    I need the bike only for the weekends, and no serious racing, etc.

    I would be truly thankful for your help.

    Hey aye44,
    Sorry, I wont be too much help as I am in the US.

    But usually the best place to look for a used bike is to become a member of Motorcycle Message boards and search the Classified sections.


    Usually, there are good deals to be had.

    Although I did find a 250 on Ebay for less than 500 pounds:

    @Freshy

    I won't get a chance to get back on the track until May, even then I'll have to get someone to take the snaps.... here's hoping

    @xtremist

    Never done the drag strip myself, i've always been knee down type of rider.

    As for the litre bikes....I'm hopefully test riding the K7 1000 next week, I just love the way Suzuki's lay down the power and keep the handling true.

    R1's have a setup more suited for the track and an aggressive riding position which will leave your wrists a bit sore.

    Honda's are great bikes but they compensate for your mistakes and therefore you lose some thrills....build quality is the best on Honda's.

    My choice is the Suzuki 1000 K7, with it's slipper clutch, hydrolic clutch, twin stub exhaust and switchable engine remapping on the fly.

    Setting 1=120bhp at the rear wheel (for wet weather)
    setting 2=150bhp at the rear wheel (for road use)
    setting 3=180bhp at the rear wheel (fro track use)

    I think I'd be stuck on setting 3 all the time
