  1. The wife has decided to have a go at trackdays and I’ve managed to pick up this ex Trioptions 899 off a mate.

    I had one of these a few years ago and it was amazing so hoping this feels the same. Pretty much the same spec as the bike I had.

    The bike was professionally built from new as a race bike with a blueprinted engine using Carrillo rods.

    Ohlins TTX36 shock

    On the look out for some spare wheels if the price is right.

  3. I thought the same mate, but it’s heavy and it’s cumbersome compared to the 899.
    She struggles with the clutch on the R6 as well.

  9. 899 was my first track bike bought from P&H Carl Cox race team in 2017.
    I took it everywhere round Europe and even to Philip Island.
    It performed faultlessly and taught me a lot.
    Then amazingly, Leon Morris, the original Trioptions rider, who I think won the championship on it, turned up on here and bought it.
    Great memories and a happy ending.
