A sunny Friday and the GTR was in for new boots.

Look what I had to play with while the work was carried out.

Blimey - they obviously trusted you. :roll:

So what did you think of the (for the benefit of non-bikers) 201hp :shock: Supercharged Kawasaki H2?

This is the new H2 SX, "tourer" version. It's a fantastic machine with a watch like engine (no rattles, clicks, bangs like a normal bike). A constant surge of silky smooth power ... and surprisingly, engine braking.

For ME it hasn't moved enough away from the original H2 that I tested last year. It needs higher bars, a comfy seat and shaft drive.

Here's my review of the H2 I rode last year. See page 26 of this PDF. Kawasaki H2 Ohhh!

I'll post my full review of the H2 SX when it is published next month.

When you said GTR, I thought you meant a Datsun

Didn't they make those curved huts that were popular during WWII? :)

I think the bloke that designed them and gave them his name just died in prison after a civil service career ended badly.
