I wish there was a way to allow true enthusiasts that were in the area to come by and try some or all of my bikes. Experience how our beloved sportbikes have evolved over the last three decades and the different philosophies behind each iteration.

These bikes should be enjoyed and experienced by all of us who love to ride.

The only issue is insurance and liability and the fact that I'm not that close to great roads or have the free time to facilitate such a thing. I think I need to retire and find a way to make this happen. While I'm at it maybe build a racetrack in my backyard as well!!

We all can (and should!) dream!!

YES!!! Although it looks like you're quickly running out of space as well (which is a great thing given what you're filling it with!)

Only was able to cover about 10 miles, but WOW! What a beast. Low end torque is insane. Riding position also fits me really well. Nice combination of the rawness and visceral feel of the older machines and performance of the newer machines. You'll notice a few more stickers on this bike than what came from the factory. These were professionally added by the previous owner to match the actual bike Bayliss raced. They can be easily removed, but I kinda like them.

I'm looking forward to getting further acquainted with her and exploring her abilities.

In the meantime, here are a few obligatory pics...







i happen to have a bayliss bike cover if interested

At this point, it is beyond getting your knee down with all those epic bikes.
You must get your elbow down or sell them all off
