Nice bike. Shame is owned by a poser or a 650ib wannna be. Bst carbon wheels for improved handling yet looks though lived upright from the front tyre

Yeah I know is jealousy is a terrible thing. I'll put the claws away.

Lovely unusual bike

Carbon wheels on the road :o never a good idea IMO

& I thought the H2 was never meant to be a road bike anyway ??

Not a 750 but the nearest I've got to a real H2

This was the first one I had which was pretty much the reason there was always a vital something missing from my modest collection until I got another one

I have other bikes now (including the RS2) which piss on it in terms of power and performance figures

I've never been able to see the point of all those numbers on a piece of paper :? I know some people do but I've never been left at the back of a bike run, even when I've been riding a 118cc B120 :? Who gives a damn 8-|

However... that HIF 500 remains still the only bike I've ever owned which truly defined for me the meaning of "brown adrenaline" :-s :-s :-s @-) @-) @-) :pale: :pale: :pale:

Ah, remember when you could tell a bike's make just by looking at it? GISS they call it, General Impression, Size and Shape.

If I couldn't see the Ninja sticker in the top pic I'd have no idea of the make. Could be a BMW with the wrong sticker as far as I'm concerned :cry:

It's due to the way the Japanese alphabet works.

The word they were looking for was Minger but they couldn't quite get the pronunciation :-s :-s :-s
