I knew I'd get round to intro's! Lol

Post  northernmonkey on Thu Jul 15 2010, 14:19

Hello everyone,

Just a quick intro with a few pictures. My name's Neil, 35, Train driver from Kent, UK

Only passed my test a few months ago so this is my first bike, and I'm slowly but surely getting there with it!

Bike how it started out:



And how it is now:







Colours are Lamborghini Murcielago Orange and Silver with the later type decals in Carbon Fiber.

Hope you like, although i do understand the Orange is a taste thing, you either love it or hate it!

Neil

Cheers for the comments, not sure about it looking like a busa though. Maybe time for a repaint! Lol

er WOW Shocked well there's one thing - no need to put you on spotted there can't be more than one looking like that around - wouldn't be my cup of tea (as everyone on here will testify i am very quiet and like to stay in the background - you won't notice i'm there) but its certainly a nice job - do you have matching leathers naughty

Fortunately not! Ha ha!

I did say, it's a personal thing and I completely understand how some people would find it too much!

Thanks for your nice comments though buddy!

Hi & Welcome,

Very, very nice bike, if someone described it i'd be unsure but looks crackin' in pictures and sure even nicer in flesh! Very Happy

And now 2 on forum that get me thinkin of Lee Evans, one of his things where he gets called 'monkey boy' as well, and nickname for pal of mine to.

All these northern monkeys & southern shandy drinkers makes the midlands feel almost appealing, almost!!

Enjoy the bike & forum, all the best!
