I didn't have time to watch all the vids and don't know how it all ended,predictably no doubt!

That fine... :shock: If that didn't put you off a Swiss bike tour,I dunno what would.

Although I dig my inline fours,I'd take the 999 if forced into a corner. It's the only Ducati I've ever ridden and I quite liked it. The engine/clutch rattles make me want to shit the breeks,tho...

The budget bike battle videos are well worth a laugh if you get some time to click through them.

Yeah the Swiss traffic stop was eye watering and lucky Al had his plate blocked by a passing car or the combined fines could have been 6 grand as well as only being a few KPH below the "go straight to jail for a few weeks" :o :o

The Swiss are a real bundle of giggles.

I'd love to drive through on an old smoker H2 and poison their air for a while. 8-)

Yeah that.

44 teeth is probably my fav youtube channel, not just the bike battles either. The latest Le Man one was good, the racing 125's was cracking etc. The Maccy d's ones not so much.

Am I the only one that can't stand either of them or their channel?

Watched a couple of episodes of their budget bike thing where they bought a GSX-R and an R1(?) both of which were broken. They then spent a fortune not just fixing the problems, but then "improving" the bikes. Pointless.

Never saw the outcome as couldnt stand to watch another second.

I don't mind Fagan, but i know his history as a racer etc so respect his opinion as a rider. The other guy i'm less keen on, but he's OK.

They do seem to enjoy it and have passion though which is all good with me :)

However, i don't really watch youtube.

OK, I just watched it.

It's like they're trying to banter, but the girlie sounding one just keeps repeating the same old shit.

I'm impressed they set a budget of £5k... but spent 6.2 and 6.5!

I have just been looking at 999's on Ebay... but I've just remembered the one I rode was a torture device at anything under 80mph and it shat its' guts out a couple of weeks later.

Judging by the contortions of the MV rider,the triple nine seemed to be the comfy one! The other chap being taller may be a factor too,but I knew a fella with an MV a few years ago and it was a torture device under 80mph.

Best budget bike battle and the only really budget one was the first one. The ZX7 Vs SRAD. The others haven't been as good.

I'd rather watch it than most TV but I prefer the road tests to the battles. The superbike shoot out is also worth a watch.

I think if you don't pay the rest of the fine, they are VERY persistent and it gets even more expensive.
