400...it's my second DRZ...had one a few years ago but that got pinched...booo....then I had a CBR600 for a few years...supermotos are waaaay more fun though....

im doing my tests for my a2 licence so im tempted to go 390 duke :)
In my IMO opinion of mine, this is by far the best way to do it....get some experience on smaller bikes before going nuts....not like these people you see that go on those intensive courses, go from never having ridden anything to a Fireblade in a month and end up painting the scenery...

1st Micraversary!
My brother's got a new 390 and it's a lovely bike. He had a 600 fazer for years and he reckons the Duke is all the bike he'll ever need.

Nice work!

Might need to tilt your camera up to avoid showing the speedo ;)

Do you ever watch Baron von Grumble or Premises vids? I can recommend them highly...

I noticed that too lol I was tempted to mount it on the side of the frame but then its am I going to smash it off? Lol and noo not seen them?
 
Here's my bike. Not quite as fancy as other people's but i love it all the same.

It's a 1980 Honda Superdream CB250NA and i used it as my daily until i got the Micra, it's off the road at the moment awaiting a bit of restoration as it didn't fare too well being used over last winter :(
(have'nt done much to it cause i've been busy with the Micra, but it'll get it's turn soon enough!)
