greatest motorcycle EVER!
Seriously though, RD350LC YPVS …… !
Nah. I had one after two 350LC’s. Though it’d be brill, but it just felt too grown up.
Best bike I ever had was a Kawasaki ZX9R C1 -whether it was flat-out on an Autobahn, Donington Park to Aylesbury in under an hour or commuting in all weathers. It was brill. Put 50k on it.
But best bike ever – it depends.
For my era, it’d be a toss up between Z900, 350LC, first oil-cooled GSXR750, RC30, GPz900r and maybe the 916 as a late entrant.Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Devil’s advocate re the NR750:
Oval piston tech failed on the track and was too expensive to mass produce for the road.
Yep, the styling was massively innovative (Tamburini acknowledged it as an influence on the 916) and it featured all the latest tech, but all that stuff would have appeared anyway sooner or later.Posted 4 years ago
For utter road-legal crazy-ape, bonkers mentalness, it surely has to be the RG500
A mate had one. It was insane. His quote was ‘It’ll pass anything! Apart from a petrol station!”
Most fun bike I’ve had was one of these
FZR400 RR EXUP. Used to redline at something absolutely insane. More chuckable than anything on the road. The grin factor on Welsh B roads was through the roof.Posted 4 years agokiwijohnSubscriber
I remember seeing the Britten race at Wigram in 93.Posted 4 years ago
Had a half lap handicap behind the rest of the field. Was second by the end of the first lap to a big Kawasaki & did a wheel stand the length of every straight.
Such an immense machine to be built in a shed from scratch.
So tragic John Britten died so young.
