My poor SB6 has been moved around the place for the past 4 or 5 years, stored at my parent's house, then a mate's place, but tonight i finally brought her home so i can prepare her for the Festival of Speed....

She never fails to delight me, they really are one of the most beautiful bikes ever designed.... Smile

Tis nice indeed....I enjoy seeing folk that are brave enough to change a Bimota, especially colour scheme...Big fan of MotoCorse as those boys know how to make a special bike such as a Bimota...even more special...

The good thing about the InterFoS and Manchester Show displays is that it does get bikes like this out and about. The date of the display gives you motivation and a deadline where you've got to get your bike out and prepared. It's just like getting bikes ready for race meetings.

Good to see the SB6 out and I guess that after the display, it won't be hidden away. They're so nice to just look at. See you in a couple of weeks.

Hi Vort,

the SB6 is black, it's just the reflection of clear blue Australian skies that makes it look blue...

That small trailer isn't mine i just borrowed to get the 6 home.

If you like the Discovery, you might like this that i own, though i think i'm going to sell it to help pay for the YB5..



Range Rover Classic cut down to a ute, 4.6 top hatted rover engine on straight LPG, 4.11's with front and rear lockers, currently on 33's as the fun police here are clamping down on vehicle modifications...

The Landrover Discovery is the production tallest car and as such a real pain in the tits to multi storey car park designers
