Hello from a young Limey!
Hi guys, as most of you from what I have seen, seem to be from the USA, I thought I would introduce myself. My names Ashley, I live in the UK.
I haven't really had a bike before except for a 125 for a couple of months. But I have tested so many its untrue!
I fell in-love with the wee-strom, it is truely amazing. (thanks to my local Suzuki garage for the loan for the day!)
I am searching high and low for one of these babies, but it has to be the right one and nothing has made me put my hand in my pocket as of yet. But is it a tad strange that if one came up that was good price and DIDN'T work that I would be extremely tempted. I love to mess, I built my friends bike back up after it was stolen and trashed, and love to have projects, so its only right that I try and get one of these as my project for 2011.
I have decided to go more down the tourer route for the obvious comfort reasons as I would like to take it overseas and do some touring on it. But also the fact that I think that if i got a sport/super-sport bike that I would definitely be tempted to be more stupid and more chance of me hurting myself.
So in the short of it, if anyone comes across one that is a bit un-loved and worse for wear, in the UK, PLEASE let me know. I would be very interested!
