'I’VE HAD FOUR'
"I was riding a Yamaha FZR600 when a Japanese earthquake halted Bridgestone tyre production," reader Graham Nicholls told MCN. "Unable to get the rubber I wanted, I went in search of a solution. Into the showroom I strode, to be greeted by a six-month old Blade. 'Why is that here?' I asked. 'Owner brought it back because it scared the living daylights out of him,' came the reply. It was mine half-an-hour later. The power and handling were awesome. Smile factor 10. I've had four Blades since and still have my original."
