First time without a Buell since 2006 :sad1: I'll buy another one when we're a bit more sorted with where and how we're living, which will hopefully be about in 6 months, probably about the same time Att wants rid of it :)

Oi Bonzeau! Where's the S1 then?


Motomax sold it for me a couple of months ago. I wasn't riding it enough, mostly because it's not a comfortable commuter, but also needed to clear space in the garage, and TBH I get paranoid on longer rides in case it breaks down or the belt snaps. For the time being I'm going to stick with old cheapo bikes. Cash flow is also a bit tight at the moment, doing two house renovations simultaneously in the UK is stretching things a bit thin :) Once the houses are done, one of them sold and we get a property out here, I'll start expanding again.

Oh yeah, nearly forgot.....I could not wait yesterday and I didn`t want to take it outside in the wet, so I started it up in the conservatory, amazing how much fumes they can put out and just how shit the door seals are on the doors in the conservatory lOl

I have been more popular as I recall, still it could be worse, I could have ridden it into the lounge, but I chose not to, so she should really stop fucking whining about it I reckon.
