Post  thunderstu600 on Thu Oct 03 2013, 23:40

Only went to have a look so spur of the moment thing. Wasn't planning to change bikes until the new year but I really can't rely on Frankensteen and really don't have confidence she will look after me, I've spent a fortune on her and she's no better for it ok first incident was more than likely my fault due to inexperience a bald tyre and freezing conditions but after it's any ones guess.

As you know I like give names to my vehicles, so now it's my pleasure to introduce you to POLLY rocket.

Polly rocket here she is, well, on saturday when I pick her up Very Happy 







My hose pipe is already set up for after every ride and the purchase of ACF50 is on it's way.

Seeing the wear on the rear tyre tells me it is pre-owned, but what year is it, you didn't say.

Done 2 days of riding and 150 miles later, wow what a bike. Very Happy  Yes, it's tourque is somewhat less than the cat but chuckability, balance, rev range and sex appeal is second to none, Ive not ridden anything else so only going off my experience, green smile i may be biased too lol. Not dissing the cat either, great bikes and i learned alot from frankensteen. You never forget your first eh.
My boy loves it and it gets looks everywhere, and the can, wow sounds sexy.
No issues with comfort really, yes it's a more racey set up and the wrists do feel the pressure but I seem ok when not carrying pillion. Dont tell my son lol

ellie, I've done 14 years of trying to make the misses happy. I must be doing ok lol
Ill upload some sunshine pics later

Nice bike!

Still a Yam, and it's blue, so I guess you can stay great 

Good to hear you're going to take your time to get to know Polly.
Glad to here you've already found out she's good in the dark - oh err!

Chris

PS My bike's headlight is just a little worse than the Thundercat blind
