    Lol. I don't mess about Joe. Once I get my mind set. I had 3 offers within 40 minutes of putting the KTM up for sale and it went Tuesday afternoon. I got the triple Tuesday evening. It kind of fell into my lap so to speak. A friend of a friend. Considering what else is out there I think I did quite well.
    I've put 150 miles on it in the last two days and I am going steady. Obviously it's a world away from a 100kg 2 stroke Supermoto. It felt like a tank to start with but I'm getting a little more comfortable with it. They just take a touch more man handling don't they. It's lovely to ride. The seats like an armchair compared to that razor blade I've been sitting on. I'm looking forward to getting some more miles racked up.
    Thanks
    James

    I would have preferred a black one or even the grey from 2016 but it was the best one I found for the money. I wasn't too bothered about the colour as long as it wasn't yellow or red to be honest.

    Welcome, James (I have a brother with the same name - just sayin'!:eek:).
    Tell me, who did put the c*nt in Scunthorpe? I only ask because another forum showed Scunny as S*&"%horpe, or similar, whenever I typed it!!
    Probably the same bloke who put grim in Grimsby and grime in Grimethorpe!:rolleyes: Sigh!!:(
