Your bikes already on the Swiss register as below...you can update its new location by emailing Manuel Nunez whos the chairman....he speaks english so no language barrier.......PJ....is Peter James Insurance...an offshoot from Footman James...I used to be with FJ but they changed their underwriter who now excludes 3rd party insurance for riding "other peoples bikes" something that I sometimes do....so I swapped to PJ........

Nice looking SB6, R/W/B defo the best and preload adjusters, they are mega rare on 6's also. Looks like a good buy.

So, after taking delivery of the bike in September last year, Christmas, busy work schedule, other bikes etc. I only got the SB6 back this week!

I still didn't get to ride it the day it was delivered, so only rode it yesterday, 16th June! I'll give more detailed impressions some other time, but first impressions are very favourable!

One memory that sticks out is overtaking two cars and a lorry on an A-road. When the chance arose, I advanced the throttle briskly and clearing the cars pretty quickly I thought 'why not?'; so opening the throttle a bit more she shot past all three vehicles in short order. Seeing the road ahead was clear and straight, the monkey on my back told me to hold the throttle open, which I did; and changed up one before noticing trees etc. starting to blur (and also a bend that had previously seemed quite far away now rapidly approaching) so backed off a bit! Being more sensible from then on, I settled to a pace where I could feel the cornering dynamics and swept through the bends for the rest of the way. She inspires a great deal of confidence and I shall have a jolly time exploring her capabilities in due course.

My thanks go out to Simon and Andy at Race Engineering, Dunmow, who prepped the bike for me - all I'll say is - no flat spot at 4k. I don't know if many SB6s have it, but was a bit worried I might experience it after hearing it mentioned a few times. Not having ridden for a while, I was a bit clumsy/lazy with the throttle, but she pulled smoothly throughout the rev range.
