Excellent display guys!!! I wish I could see those beautiful bikes from close...


Cheers Jure........perhaps next year you can hop over and help on the stand...can always offer accommodation...and my house and the event are only 10 miles from Manchester airport....But you may get carried away and consider your own collection is not complete.....so its an offer tinged with danger........ Wink

The lighting is good down there and can make shiney things seem even brighter......as all of the bikes down there are ran on the road and insured etc......theres no museum pieces down there...although most folk couldnt believe it........

I'd say of all the folk I talked to...8/10 thought we were a dealers stand and couldnt believe some of the bikes were 10, 20 or 30 years old.....so timeless the pieces are ......


Yeah some people who see my sb6 can't beilieve it's old enough to vote either. So many of the 90's bimotas had styling many years ahead of anything else from the era. They still look like they are current models.

Hi 2Bims,

Knew his other bikes, just hadn't seen his latest restoration finished!
Beautifull ........ liked the girl even more (the one with your eyes Wink ).
Beginning to understand why Nige was there Very Happy

Frank Embarassed


Its probably fair to say that we all enjoyed ourselves down there...but again the sad task of rounding up the ladies to sit on the bikes fell down to me...hey Ho.....The KB1 is nice indeed...and other than the DB1 is probably one of my favourites of the Old Bims.....Nige just finished it in time....just one week prior to the show it was ready and had its first shakedown ride...so it was good to have it there for variety

Steve that is most generous and tempering offer... If you'll need pair of hands... Wink

Perhaps I'll let him off his Bimota error seeing as he's clearly missing a lot of understanding as regards mere Kettles........... Cool

No more Bims here...but lots more pictures of lovely ladies that were down there......... Laughing
