    John, you are a bad man. Putting temptation in my path.

    Looks like a corker of a bike, though. :thumbsup:

    Cheers young man.
    Have to say when I first took it out, it was a bit "lumpy", took it to Loch Ness Restorations and they did a great job in getting her running right for a very modest fee :thumbsup:
    Took her out for a couple of runs and have to admit I am rather taken by it. It is certainly handles well for an old beast, good throttle response and it causes attention every time I park up, even more than the old AT :cool2: Wrong time of year to sell I guess but I am in no hurry, had a few enquiries and a guy coming to look at this week, so we'll see.
    Should I keep it ???? nah I have other plans ;):D
