Bril­liant Blade

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Hav­ing read the re­port on the Fire­blade this week I hope Ped Baker en­joys his time with it as much as I do with mine. I bought my yel­low 954cc 2002 Blade three years ago as a 65th birth­day treat and it is awe­some, a real qual­ity bike. I ride it mainly on the road, and have done two or three track­days a year since I bought it.

It now has 38,000 miles on the clock and the only prob­lem I find is that it at­tracts flies when parked in the summer. I have just fit­ted Met­zeler Road­tec 01 tyres af­ter read­ing your testers rav­ing about them and so far I would agree, they warm up quickly and seem to give con­fi­dence straight away. I am look­ing forward to this year’s first track­day at Don­ing­ton to see how they per­form on the track. Roger Holden, email
