TBH, if I had to spend 25k on a bike, I would put most of it on the engine... so it goes like sh!t off a shovel! lol

(Then I would do racing upgrades... levers etc)

I like the 190 rear tyre though! Makes the R125 one seem like a puch bike tyre! (and the CBF 125 tyre seem like a rubber band! Sorry Tom Bark! LOL)

its $25k not £ so im guessing thats £15,535

The more you mod your engine the more it reduces the bikes life expectancy on the engine and other parts due to more wear and tear. hence why racer always have to do a re-build after each race etc. I think he done well, but i wouldnt spend that on a bike

£15k is still ALOT!!

As for rebuilding the engine, I doub't he would ride it like he was on a track day every time he rode it!

By the looks of it, he doesn't ride it much on the road at ALL.
I think it's a showroom pride bike :p

And when you have spent that much, bikes generally aren't workhorses.
My bike is a workhorse. I don't plan on tarting it up at all...

He just likes showing off. It's difficult to show off power, other than talking about it.
