That would have been tempting had I not bought my Vstrom.

Just looked at this deal properly and the whole PCP deal thing puts me off. Ideal if you only want to hire the bike for 3 years and hand it back or borrow more money to pay it off then its a good deal.

I guess I still like the idea of the bike being mine....which of course it will be sometime tomorrow  :lala: :lala:

How are you going to finance it then now you've turned your back on cottaging?

Never mind the Africa Twin. Is that our long lost Tall Paul? Bloody good to have you back mate.

A few quick snaps of Nelson too

Very nice!  :icon_drool5: So tempting...

Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh, Ridaz. Roll on 2018 when I will be joining the growing ranks of traitors...
