    Not a sniff, two hundred and fifty large is a nice next egg to sit on, there is no way I'd be spunking it on a bike unless I had at least ten times that in my bank.

    Not a problem, I just sold a spare house. But what would I do with it? I'm not interested in track days anymore. I can't go sailing in it. It doesn't have a turbo and a pressurized cabin and seating for four. It doesn't even come with panniers and a top box. Nope, doesn't meet any of my current needs.

    Looks like one of you guys is going to have to answer the call.

    I could easily afford it, but this week at the Jerez tests the best KTM was slower than Jonny Rea's Kawasaki, which would be a million times easier to ride.

    MotoGP bikes aren't human friendly.

    I love Kawasakis but as all the cool kids know, Pol's bike is on a different planet in terms of coolness and desirability, that would be epic- I'd rather Pol's bike over 10 of Jonny's, and that is a surprisingly reasonable price for it too IMO
    I'd take it to the next TRC Pembrey do too, and Weeksy would ride it, albeit I suspect we might need to quiet it down a tad to get it past the noise testers first
