I was sat having a post workout coffee yesterday afternoon when I got a call saying that the Ninja was all fixed. Mike and Artur got it all sorted and so two weeks after that little scumbag tried to nick my bike, it was running again. After spending those two weeks riding the Ducati into and out of Central London, the Ninja felt almost alien. The clutch felt really light, I felt that I was sat down really low in the bike and it felt really spongy. On the ride to work this morning, it didn't take too long to get a feeling for the bike, but it felt slow and a bit lethargic , but that extended use of the Ducati has really highlighted the differences between my two bikes. I know the Ninja needs a bit of work, the shock for example, really needs to be changed, but its really nice to have it back, especially as the City is no place for a big twin
My name is Matt Brown and I'm a UK journalist formerly based in London, but now calling the South of England home. I've been riding bikes since 2007, but got hooked straight away. Nothing gives me the feeling of freedom, even when stuck in a city. In 2010 I became a RoSPA gold rider, but when it comes down to it, I'm Just a normal man, riding his bikes as often as he can.
