 In the past 10 years i have had 3 ducati's 748,749,749s, 3 kawasaki's 600 zzr 636,and Z750, 2 suzuki SV 's yamaha FZ1000, thunder cat , cbr 600 ,and the awsome 750 MV Agusta,

 And now to my collection a black 1997 blackbird with 18000miles on the clock, with out any problem the MV Agusta is by far the most georgious bike ive had , but the big blackbird has it all, It is good looken, and as far as power goes FECK it is quick ,

 Arround the town it is brill no need for any over reving, and most off all, down the coast road it is brill, i thought it was gonna be a heavy beast far from it, it handles really good , and when there comes a bit of a straight Feck your at the end of it. The only other bike i had would give it a run down the coast road was my RSV aprilia.

I also have a 1997 Black CBR 1100 XX and took it out this weekend after putting new tires and changing all the fluids. The bike is a blast to ride along with my 2004 CBR 1000 RR and 1991 CBR 1000 F. The Blackbird will always be one of my favorites!

Bought my 99 Fi Bird in April thinking i'm 2 old for a sportsbike and 2 young for a tourer, Well what can i say! What a Tool, it's superb, Stable, handles well N Boy is it FAST, build quality is very good, just a wash and it comes up like new, would recommend one to any experienced rider.

I love 'em, on my third one now. Great two up, with the traditional dual seat. Eats the miles with comfort.
