Those Milles are definitely a sweet spot in terms of value, wasn't that long ago I had a RSV in the garage. The gen 1 RSV are taller, slimmer and apparently more raw from everything I read. The Edwards editions are really special by all accounts too.
I'm a bit fascinated by the 750cc in-line 4/1,000cc v-twin era of superbikes, 100-ish bhp for the road feels just right in terms of performance and usability.
Good find with the Drill. I've been making a bit of progress on my garage of late and understand the temptation of getting bits to find that it's all a bit squashed in. I need less stuff as more space isn't an option.
Yoshi looks great on the gixxer. The recent space woes listed above have put a halt to looking at a motorbike for the short term so I'll live vicariously through this thread!
Before we moved into the house I remember the temptation of buying things. Like you say, better to hold off until you've got an accurate idea of space if that's possible.
With the repositioned muffler I needed to create a new exhaust hanger. I really like the high-rise look but let's see if it melts the indicator. Only a small job, but was great using the drill for the first time and went through the 4mm aluminium like butter.
Loving the SRAD. Growing up my Dad had a similar eras Fireblades (a late carb and early FI one), CBR600 and Triumph Daytona.
One of his riding buddies had a black and silver GSXR which I thought was rad as hell until he crashed it and broke his collar bone. May yours give you infinitely more luck.
If our upcoming house move involves a garage I'd like to go down the RSV Mille route. Loved watching Haga and Edwards on SBK, but can't afford a SP1 or SP2
