    In the 'advanced' search options there's a tick box for 'completed' listings.

    Looks very nice, you've got a new bike for half the price, that someone has run in for you, enjoy it.

    Thank you, did you notice the bike had been dropped. On its left hand side, the clutch leaver gives it away. I think itís called the crank shaft casing also on same side has upwards directing scratch which makes me believe it was a sideways drop. Other than that just very tiny fairing niggles.

    Didn't notice it, but it's probably just a walking pace drop, easy enough to fix if it bothers you, but have a look what else is about for £4K, you've got a good bike.

    Really appreciate your opinion, regardless of whatís said. Simply as Iím not made of money and right now the pennies count, so rather than me think Iíve spoiled myself I can now concentrate on giving my two young nippers the best I can. Theyíve got my love thatís all that counts.

    Once Iím up and running I will certainly be reaching out for buddies to ride and learn with

    Bike collected, that makes me the owner of my first ever motorbike.... Honda CBR 600F. I will no doubt be fine a bike journey thread soon enough, thanks to those whoíve gave advice already to me.

    I also managed to get my hands on a year round bike jacket and trousers. Those whoíve heard of KLIM texture with D30 protection and GORE-TEX, what are your thoughts?

    I just need to get my hands on some boots and lid.

    Well would it be seen as a good deal if I got both pieces for £400 total. They are basically brand new, if you imagine in 2 years the bike did 400 miles total.



    I checked on eBay and there is something similar being sold and total bods are up at £350 with 1 day remaining.

    Please note I only ask as Iíve no idea if prices are inflated etc.
