Default My new toy

Sold the Triumph last week to thin down the number of bikes I own (was 5) & ended up seeing this on a Facebook selling page. This is my 3rd naked curvy, I can't leave them alone
25000 miles, 1999, looks mint, just hope it rides as well as she looks as I haven't taxed, or insured her yet. It was going to be track biased, but I think it's in far too good condition to do it, so may end up on the road.
I only need a pointy now & I'll have the set

There are a couple of blemishes on the tank, but the engine cases & rest of the bike are absolutely stunning. It always makes me worried when they look this good, makes me think that there is something wrong deeper down lol

Wow, that made me look twice! My old 99 blue naked curvy had a similar fly screen but the buyer did not want it so it's gathering dust in my garage, and mine had the dark grey wheels. It's still getting MoT's so I know it's still on the road and I half wonder if it'll pop up on here in a similar thread one day. Enjoy it Col.

Took her for a short run this morning. Everything is spot on other than shaking her head over 50mph (Needs new tyres) & the rear brake travel is very excessive, so will take a look at it in due course. I could really do with getting rid of the Gladius now, I can see it just sitting there while I use the SV.
