I needed a winter bike. Well, I needed a bike to ride until the Black Arrow is finished. After having to get rid of one British automotive design classic a little past its best, I decided to buy another. This is a 1999 T595 Daytona in Speed Triple trim. It's rough. I've named it the Cockroach.
It has a bad rattlecan paintjob, the indicators don't work, nasty enduro front light, broken gear lever, the ugliest stick-on tank protector in the universe and uncomfortably low bars, but it has a couple of month's tax and test, it runs and starts really well, sounds great and, the clincher, it was £730. Yes, 730 quid! G
