On the lookout for my first Bimota.

Prefer one that at 6'1 I can ride in relative comfort so maybe a later SB/YB model.

Not too particular on model or mileage as want one to ride as opposed to an ornament provided well cared for and no damage history.

Thanks and Merry Christmas Bimotarers

From what i've heard you can safely scratch the db1 off your list then Laughing . Apparently built for midgets... something that i hope to prove one of these days.

Good luck in your search, seems to be a fair number of yb's out there which come up on the market every now and then. Keep us posted.

He's based in Lancashire....UK...Brian....already offered him a sit on my Bims...but not taken up yet....and Yeh...DB1 would be off his list....YB11's and the odd SB8 crop up in UK....but pretty lean pickings otherwise...too many Bimota owners keen to hold onto their stash it would seem.... Laughing

I have two mates; both well over 6 foot. One has convinced himself he could not fit on my DB1 despite several offers from me to take it for a run: the other didn't need to be asked twice and had to be pried off the bike, not because he was stuck on it, but because he loved riding it so much and didn't want to hand it back.

Hi Retroman,

I have a very nice 1992 YB10 Dieci, which I've owned since 1997. Red/silver, excellent condition, less than 10k miles. Never dropped or crashed, many sensible mods. Currently MOT'd. I'd be looking for around 6500 for it.

If you are interested, I can send photos, and you can contact me at either

johngregson@blueyonder.co.uk or 01242 511402 (Cheltenham, Glos)

Regards

John
