very light thing with lots of power wins drag race shocker.
Bikes still rock
Very distinctive location too
Just learnt that Performance Bikes magazine is no more. A shame but I suppose a sign of the times.
It’s now merged into Practical Sportbikes magazine so will probably have a couple pages devoted to modern stuff.
I haven’t bought it regularly for years.
The last time I bought a bike mag was when I was going on holiday last summer. The previous time was pretty much exactly 12 months prior to that. I bought, Bike, Practical Classics and Classic Bike. Not bought PB for years, although I did quite enjoy it. The centre pages used to be great until they sanitized them.
The Maserati one is cool as fuck
And now the fairing doesn’t either.
I do have a play on that site quite regularly. Not sure how accurate it is but it does give an indication at least. Ie just how quickly a sports bike would trigger my sciatica
But, but, you’ll look like a Polis rider on the beemer
My last bike , and the bike I’d like next. As you can see , the Ducati is much more sensible
Now to convince wifey
Lol! I had a hypermotard as a courtesy bike when the 998 was In for a service. The fucking thing hardly ever had the front wheel on the ground, it was an absolute hoot up to about 60mph whereupon it became a literal pain in the neck because of the wind blast.
Has to be someone’s tag…
On the old Ducati forum they were called Hyperretards which might work better here.
