You got the SB8R at a great price if it was the Ebay one I told my Brother to go and buy!

He's just up the road at Thousand Oaks and runs Mamba Motorsports - has two BMW dealers in Santa Clarita and Ventura.

Great part of the world - I enjoyed visiting last August Very Happy

Just took a closer look and your bike is not this one from ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/2000-Bimota-SB8R-/252303210939?forcerrptr=true&hash=item3abe7179bb%3Ag%3AXPcAAOSw9mFWMYT5&item=252303210939&nma=true&si=8wCxVYf0Pmv9c6FL3weNJZ360qA%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

I bought mine from a collection here in Los Angeles. if your brother owns Ventura BMW then I serviced my R11S at his place about a year ago. let me know next time you are visiting your brother, maybe we can carve some canyons. Did you ride any roads while you were here? Santa Clarita is close to Bouquet Canyon which is one of the best local rides IMO

Small world - yes I met the BMW team at both dealers. Say Hi to Mike next time your there!

Yes I did some rides when I was over in August - I was like a child in a toy store with my pick of the BMW's! Took the XR out locally to the Rock Store and then PCH1, then a RR up through Ojai and up Route 33 which was spectacular.

Thanks for the offer - may give you a shout next time I'm over!

Of course , she married me Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing OK , maybe a bad example !!

Marvic's seem to be standard on the original DB6R. Watched a few press launch video's on line and they all got the Marvic's. However at some stage the stocks must have run out and they went to the DB7 wheels on the later 6R's. Marvic nice a chunky and suit the DB6 style best I think.

Pictures need to be uploaded from your laptop onto a file share site like "photobucket" which is free to sign up to...and you get the benfit that your pictures are always there and safe...when uploaded there you then open a thread/post on the forum and flick between screens copying and pasting the img "links" into your words...then pictures will come up...

Cut and Paste from "Desmo Mick" in Sydney Oz...

"Hi fellow bimotistas.

My name is Mick I live in Sydney Australia.
I recently left Ducati ownership for the pinnacle of motorcycles
I previously owned a 1098 Streetfighter and a Diavel.
These were both replaced last year and I am the proud owner of a DB8 and a DB9S. "

And heres him and those beasts...








Being in Sydney...he should be taking these bikes to the BarrySheene..hic..Festival of Speed and meet up with the rest of those Bimota boys down under taking their bikes down....

Nice photos. I sent Mick a PM yesterday about the International Festival of Speed display. Hopefully he'll reply and we can see if he wants to join us in the display. We haven't got a DB8 or 9.

Like the Zard squished cans , they make the rear end look a lot neater .
What is the dash you fitted ? Was it an easy swap ?
