Just curious as i passed my Bike test at age 40 and in the 12 years since have had:
Aprillia 650 Pegaso
Ducati 999 :047:
2 XDucati 748sp
Ducati 1098
Ducati Multistrada 1200s :192:
BMW R1200GS
Kawasaki zx9
3 X Ducati Multistrada 1000ds
Buell xb12s
3 x Yamaha R1 (04 models)
BMW K1200R
2 X BMW K1300R
3 X BMW S1000RR
SUZUKI GSXR1000 (05 model)
CCM Supermoto 640
2 x MZ Baghiras Supermoto

Not in this order - and now what i believe to be the best of the bunch

 :046: No write offs had a black 2010 model then went for a 2010 sport model in white and finally a 2102 model in sport colours - which was a lot better than the 2010,the engine was much sweeter, however i only did 26 miles on it before i got the XR.

 :047: When you ride you need to feel alive the Ducati999 was good for that and now the XR some piece of kit, sports bike sitting upright.

 :005: WOW - 140 Brand new this must have cost you a fortune - or you are 120 years old, that record will take some beating me thinks - how do you rate the XR ?
