Should have done this sooner really, but oh well.

Mate of mine (who I got to know after the event) had two bike stolen in short succession this year, in Derby.

First in July was a 05 plate honda CBR125, in Repsol colours (Picture attached). Reg FE05 HKN, will get other no.s at some point. Pic attached. Apparently geared to do over 100 (and correspondingly slow to get there).

Second in August was a Skyjet 125, reg FJ10 WUM

I only pass on what I'm told-it certainly wasn't stock. Bear in mind in the 60's some aussie got an ex GPO banny to just over 100mph. Claimed the 125 speed record.
