i'm new here. 750 srad owner K1 rear

Hello people.

I'm Jason and i live 1 mile from donington UK.
I'm new on here but not new to forums. I'm a member on a 125 forum to being an owner of a cagiva mito evo 1 Ross rep.
I have been browsing here for a while, the info i found has been outstanding. You guys really know your stuff.
Anyway i thought it was about time i joined.
I run a 97 750 srad with a K1 rear end and it's a Canadian import. The bike isn't completed to my standards as yet. I still have bits and bobs to do to it. Like change the vinyl on the tail unit and add some shiny bolts etc.
I probably won't make many threads if any as i know how to use the search function lol.

EDIT
Forgot to mention i'm not new to bikes. I had a bad smash at the age of 20. I built the mito from a frame and 3 boxes of parts and rodeit for 4 years to help me get back into bikes.

Looks like the change to licensing is getting people on big bikes. I have an aprilia rs125 as well.

Thanks man. Yeah the guy i had it off kept it spanking and only used it in dry weather. I spend a lot of time keeping it as clean as he did. It had done 53 miles since 2009.
Yeah i admit the K1 rear end is a marmite mod.
We do matlock quite a lot so if you fancy a bag of chips or something drop me a message.

But your right in what you say. New laws are making people pull there finger out.

If a crow were to fly in a straight line and didn't exactly know where he was going.
