Happy 25th Birthday to my Fireblade

She took me safely (and quickly ) to/from the gym today and still feels as fresh as the day I bought her 23 years ago!

Happy Birthday! Still the most beautiful Fireblade ever made (and the fastest colour).

Personal thank you for taking care of such an important piece of history.

Cheers Gunk, she saved my life once on the IOM, so we have a lot of history together. Will only stop riding her once my wrists or back give up the ghost.

Thanks Machine Head, she’s always been garaged, I think that’s helped a lot.

I’ve still got the original exhaust up the garage loft in the background of the picture.
