Doing his best ‘Sete’…


Could you guys hook a soldier up with a res’ sock and FB stickers for my GSX-R K4 I just bought? I had a crash in June

which fractured my lower spine in nine places but finally I’m back up and running so to speak. It was June 5, blazing hot and time for a ride with the lads. Ten minutes into a ride and I’m flying through the air because I locked my rear end and then highsided my baby ‘Blade with me thinking – oh shit. That’s all I could think.

Stuck in a ditch, bike on my legs and a very weird hot sensation running through my back, and unable to move, all I said to my pal as he found me was at least ‘I’m not dead’. Anyway, nine fractures to my lower back and a lot of bruising to my left love handle (and a shit load of sick leave), and I’m back on my new bike, a K4 600, and I love it – just got to get back on it and enjoy every day!

That Blade’s bushed…

Good on you getting back on the horse, Ryan!

K4 Gixer Six – cracking bike!


You can win a set brilliant Oxford Optimiser 3X for simply writing the Fast Bikes Star Letter.

This has a ‘soft-start’ charging mode to improve recovery of deeply discharged batteries as low as 8V. Also, intelligent charging will ‘cycle-charge’ in an attempt to recover sulphated batteries. Suitable for all 12V automotive batteries including LITHIUM LiFePO4 batteries. New voltage sensors quickly detect high current drain and will automatically revert to the most appropriate charge rate. Fast and efficient charging in all modes keeps charge times short and reduces power consumption.
