Still grinning like a Cheshire cat after picking up a mint 2002-748r-last Fri
Name is Ash, live and work in the Channel Islands, Jersey to be precise, but come back to the UK (Essex) at least once or twice a month to make sure the squatters haven't moved in / nicked my TV
A little background on myself: I stupidly sold up my last T plate BP 4-5 years ago due to thinking it needed to go... when in actual fact it didn't. It was all in my head. Haven't really felt the same since it went.
So after 3 years of soul-mate searching... ebay, biketrader, bike shops, etc, I finally found my golden egg *glee*. Spent a day or so over the weekend feathering it's new nest, so still over the moon at the moment. Gutted to hear that TecMoto disappeared from the scene - loved that place!
I'd love to get some advice on the bike itself in it's current form, the techno gadget wizardry (non-standard stuff) is way beyond my current Duke comprehension, I'm sure it's all good stuff, but I have little experience to compare it against or know if it's good or bad. All I know is that I need to get the belts and valves replaced (as per recent discussion with JHP).
I'd like to get more involved in the duke scene, from a knowledge and social perspective, but I'll see what happens in the coming months. I guess all I need to do now is sign up for a new DSC membership and see what happens.
Anyway, that's enough of me. Have a good eve all.
