Turns out I've now had this for 5 years, and it's even better than when I bought it (which considering what I've done to it, it should be )

Unusual colour.
So it's handled like 748, but has the power of the 916?

That looks bloody gorgeous Anthony, but I can't make out what colour it is as the number boards are so big..
Shame my body won't fit those bikes! Great combination of power and nimbleness you have there.

It's a cornerspeed special, 853cc, the ECU has been tweaked so that it fuels the cylinders separately, alloy bodied ohlins etc etc. there are so many 'of their time' trick bits on the bike it makes my head hurt. It's a hell of a piece of kit.

Mot history is interesting as well as there's 10 years between the last 2...

Is it better than the S2r?

Well, I had an hour this afternoon to go out with the teenager for a blat and I took the S2r, there's a run this weekend so the Monster will come out again and if I want to spend a couple of hours flirting about, S2r every time.

However, if I go mad or if I'm chasing a friend on his (new) H2 kwak, then the 748 will be wheeled out (and the teenager will be left at home..!)

eek, almost 12 months since the last update and as the 748 has been used somewhat more than the Monster, the Mot had expired (last year) so I took it in this morning and it passed with the normal advisory

However when I got home it decided to dump a load of oil from the filter housing. I had problems with a genuine filter a couple of years ago and I should have learnt my lesson. Time for another oil change I think, but it won't be a genuine filter this time.
