It used to be a boat anchor

I sent it back
I'm surprised it even got through the doors of Chateau Weeks... :mrgreen:

Good move. If I didn't have a Duke I'd be looking closely at one of them

Nice. An MT09 SP could possibly be on my radar if a) it wasn't so damn fugly and b) it had even a trace of wind protection. The rest of the package is spot on.

Yeah, was aware of those. Next year I think Pecco will be unstoppable. And that Turkish fella is a bit spicy.

Now come on, you're talking about not keeping bikes? ;)
I really won't mind if you explain things for me.

He's gonna sell it and then buy another in 2035 with 70k miles on it and a crust of age. It'll be perfect :lol:

Thanks. Combination of things really. Been busy with other stuff, buggered off to the moneypit in France for a month or so (little or no Internet available), just generally dropped off social media/forums but now the weather's getting cold I quite like sitting in front of my PC and talking/writing shite... :D
