June 12 2018  RHill1207  bemoans depreciation. "Folks I purchased a 2017 650 XT  around June 2017 and whilst I am over the moon with the bike.  I spoke to a fellow owner who related that the value of his bike also 2017 650 has dramatically decreased."

The replies are typical

Fatrat:      They all do that sir.

MartinW    Not necessarily all of them.

                I paid 3995 Brand New in 2004 and as it has a Silver Frame it is
                now worth 28000.

Fatrat:       You do know that's not real silver?

MartinW      :shock:

In Tuskers' thread on whether to or not to remove helmets when fuelling:


Ridaz:                             ''129p! It's only 122 at my local Tesco''


Rusty Nuts                    lol Hats off to Tescos!  [geddit]


Wurzel                            lol  lol maybe we need a price-cap...


MartinW                       It's 129p if you keep your helmet on and 122p if you take it off.


Rusty Nuts                    In that case I'll have 10 litres of unlidded



quality! lol
