Hi peeps

I just bought a '99 Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 today to go with my '94 Blade, which i've had 7 years and can't bear to sell.

I took it for it's maiden voyage and it is soooo 'kin fast it's unbelievable.

I'm so excited and still in shock about how much torque the thing has. It feels like it's got twice the power of the blade. I'm off to work on it tomorrow so the 190 mile trip should only take about an hour :shutit: .

I've attached some piccies if you fancy a look, i'm very happy :D :D :D :D :D

nice bike fella

would look sweet with C/F cans

Gimme a chance! :hehe:

Thay're Scorpion aftermarket ones and sound very nice(much quieter than the Micron full race system on the blade), i've ordered a MotoGP double bubble screen and a HID kit already, well yesterday actually.

That was before i'd even got it.

just thought i'd suggest a first mod for ya mate.....seems like you've already been buying away :shifty: :D

the double bubble screen is a must and the HID kit will not only look sweet, but will greatly improve visibility :D

What is it ER staff refer to bikers as????

Oh yes, organ donors...

and now you can get there twice as fast... joys ;)

Not necessarily true. Some of us (me) did this regularly for over 35 years, without losing any organs :winky:

It's such a blast to do, if you are that way inclined. If it wasn't for my dodgy foot, I'd still be doing it.

Enjoy your new toy adz.

theres so many haters of bikers but the fact is most are knocked off by idiot car drivers not paying notice to other road users.

But everyones allowed there own opinion :)

I dont actually hate bikers - i used to be one..

What i hate is they all seem to blame car drivers for the accidents...

"yeah, i was overtaking this long line of cars at 150mph, and some idiot car driver turned right... i was going to fast to see the indicator - but he should've looked in his wing mirror constantly to see me arriving at the speed of light before performing a perfectly legal and safe maoveour - idiot!"

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
