hi there,

it wasn't a quick and easy decision, a decision mainly taken
due to the laws and cops that surround me, but i have now
taken the mh1000u apart again, and will sell it in pieces.

at the same time, i have bought me a 100% stock SS1000DS
from 2005 with 2100 miles on it, in stock grey with red wheels,
a bike that i intend to leave 100% stock as is.

i might get me a 996 later in the year to have something to play
with parts wise

mh stock frame, swingarm, excenter, SS1000DS engine etc. are
for sale, write me a PN or see the classified section of this board
if you have any interest.



bye bye mh1000u :( - hello SS1000DS :)

Hi Muschi!

I bought a 1000ss a month ago, it's a great bike isn't it. Did you get it in the UK? I'm sure I recognise the pic from one I emailed about.

I still love the metallic gray/red combination on that bike. How are you reconsiling this change with your need to have a bare bones machine?
OBTW, I've done a lot of work on my '99 SS, so I might be able to help if you get the itch to modify this one.

yes they are lovely bikes, i had various of them before, with
900 and 1000cc, the SS1000DS is the one that suits our
straight roads best, you need some power after all where i live.

yes, bike is in the UK still, i will collect it at august the 12th. :)


yes, the stock bike hurts, but even as things have changed so much
over here, i would like to live on with my life as it is, and that means
i do not need any attention on the road.

There will be no single alteration done to this bike, not one. :think:

What the devil were you doing on the street to attract so much negative attention, or are the cops just that tough over there?

this is nazi land

they are everywhere, as this country is pretty small compared to yours,
you come across them all the time.
i do not want to have any more trouble with them, and figured a stock
and grey motorbike, with standard cans on it, might be the best way
to achieve that.

ride in peace you all. :)

wow that sucks about the custom...

good choice with the ss1000ds!!!

considering the laws there are just as tough for driver education, i think i would take the trade off! the driver etiquette around my parts is HORRIBLE.

It's a shame you were forced into this decision.

Have fun with the new bike anyway.

I always thought your 'custom' looked like a wasp. You know, pointed at the rear end......and mean as hell. I liked it. Sorry it's got to go.

BUT, I hope you have fun with the 1000. It's a good bike.


I believe you when you say you'll keep it all stock.;););););););););););););)

i will get me a second bike this winter, a black 996 hopefully,
to which i can mount the wheels and brake stuff that i am
going to keep.

the supersport stays 100% stock, no matter how much it hurts.

I enquired about this one! It sounded good to me, the only thing that stopped me, was I decided to get a red one! Small world....

I'm leaving mine fairly standard, just want some Termi's, all I need to do is find some.

yes, bike is in the UK still, i will collect it at august the 12th. :)

it sold pretty cheap, 3200 pds. / 3840 Euros / that is less than 40%
of the former list price, for a bike that is like new...

If your custom bike was street legal, why did the cops have a problem with it? I assume you had some kind of inspection sticker, or you couldn't even get a plate without it passing their inspections.

The regulations about motorcycles here in America varies from state to state, and even between different cities.

TüV ftw :(

Muschi, you wrote that you will do "no single alteration... not one."

So does that mean you will be doing "many" alterations? :D

Enjoy the new bike.

Love that color combo and I totally understand where you are going with leaving it completely stock -- aside from evading law enforcement harassment, sometimes bikes can be even more beautiful and owner-friendly when left stock.
