Moriwaki Special - Practical Sportsbikes Mag

Post by podman »

Always a good read but this months issue should be even more interesting.

Anyone on the forum know (own?) the bike?

If it's the bike I think it is it may be found in the Fiction section!

Wasn't he the chap who had / caused grief amongst a few Firestorm owners? Claimed to be fireman or sumfink but they'd never heard of him etc.

The forks were changed....to those. Also matt got brembo calipers. And he had gold gilles rear sets. So is that Matt's bike?!

Image I can't believe how annoyed I am that he has appeared in that magazine.

Definitely his bike. This is the most recent pic I could find which was stolen from Facebook.

Even the blue fork crash protectors are the same.

At least I can say I have ridden it.
Anyone read the write up in the mag? I'd be interested in their opinion compared to mine

I strongly doubt it

I was wondering if he has been banned? His profile used to show when he was last active and now it doesn't?



On another note does anyone know of a supermarket that stocks this magazine?
