Evolution

Since the dawn of time when the primal ape had developed into what we know as current day man he has striven to improve the very world he lives in. Progress was slow in the beginning, early caveman struggled to survive in a world dominated by man eating dinosaurs. Man was dumb and slow until one day man discovered how to create and use Fire. Fire made man powerful, he could bend it to his will and it was used by all. Man was pleased with his ability to control fire, but he was still dumb and slow.




As the decades passed by, Summers dwindled into Autumns, which froze its way into winters and then melted through to spring and life repeated its cycle relentlessly, many ages of man passed by. Then one day man had another brilliant idea and the second most important invention in the history of man came into being just after fire, man had created the wheel. Man realized that this was a great thing, he sat and pondered it over a few cold beers......the thirst for technology had just been sparked.







Several thousand years went by relatively uneventfully, man continued to create and invent and he gradually got smarter with some minor creations taking place like ships, bridges, jesus christ, the steam engine, electricity, refrigeration, TV and sliced bread just to name a few.









With all of these new found inventions man was contented with his brilliance, but there was a lingering thought in the back of his mind that there was something missing. Man thought long and hard and in 1885 he finally invented the first motorised bicycle, or to us the first motorcycle. Man was pleased, he would sit in his shed for days at a time and stare at it whilst blowing the froth off a few Weizenbiers.








Once man had made the first motorcycle there was much rejoicing and women and children were pleased with their men, but something else was missing.......a second motorcycle was then made and soon after then motorcycle racing was born. 

A century passed and man improved on his designs until it had reached a point where it could go no further and had become perfection. This year was 1998. Yes a man with vision named Kunihiko Miwa who should be lauded as a God among men was content that he had actually finally made perfection. Many more sheds were filled with these beasts of perfection. Yes Yamaha had created sportsbike perfection in 1998 with its R1. A race bred bike with lights and to this day still the best sportsbike ever invented......








Man was happy, he had invented perfection. Man tried to improve on this perfection, to little avail as there is no improving on perfection. Everything that came before and after has failed to live up to this mighty beast.

Then one day along came another beast that was more capable in every way. Perfection had actually been perfected yet again. Man was now happy that he actually improved on perfection which was previously thought impossible, man rested on his laurels knowing in the fact that it will be at least another 15 years before perfection can be bettered....


Old R1 meet your new stable mate. I now sit in my shed, beer in hand staring at this lovely beast of perfection.........

  6. The only people capable of making something perfect even more perfect are i.m.h.o. Italians, so I am taking a wild guess here and say: It's a Ducati Panigale, and given your passion for speed... with the biggest engine available.
