Hello from the UK
Hi, my name is Mick and I live on the outskirts of London. I used to own a Honda SP2 and sometimes swapped bikes with my son when we rode out together. He has a Duc 998 FE and when I retired he found me a 996r which I love. I then bought a '89 851 for silly money to go with the 996r and sold the SP2 to my son. Then I was offered another '89 851 which was to nice to turn down.I then had the chance to buy an SP4 from John Hackett, which is a great bike. At this point, my wife stepped in and said "How many bikes do you need"? So I sold the first 851 to a guy in Belgium, who was happy to come to England to collect it. All was OK with the world until I got a bit bored with all the soaps on Tv and wanted a project. I bought a ST4S that someone was going to break it for parts, also someone I knew was selling his '92 851 so he could fund another years racing so I bought that. So the idea is to wind up with a 996 engine 851, and its an ongoing project.
