Featured 848 Finally Got One

  1. I have been looking for one of these for a while and finally got the right one. I bought it privately from a really nice guy outside York, who bought it in 2012 and only took it out on dry days.
    I rode it approx 250 miles to the ferry at Cairnryan to bring it home to N Ireland

    It has some nice DP carbon parts and Austin Racing cans, which look and sound great and I have not seen these on an 848 before. I have added a new DP seat, Evotech rad guard and a nice personal reg, just to finish it off.

  8. Nice, congratulations :upyeah:
     
  9. lovely work... ditch that white sticker on the plate though
     
  10. Managed to pick a good day, weather was great and all in all, it was a great run, I had a couple stops for fuel and a stretch. Ear plugs were a must as the Austin Racing cans are very loud :)

  11. Previously had the plate on my 848 Streetfighter and stuck the white sticker over the Streetfighter text until my new plate arrives in the post
     
  12. Got a quote to tarmac the driveway and decided to buy the bike instead ;)

  13. Cheers, I am very pleased with it :upyeah:
     
  14. Thanks. I have to say I really like the Austin Racing cans. I am not sure how long their production run lasted but they are no longer available on their web site and there are very few images of these online so they are a bit different.
