    Hiya, my name is Andy Bruce. I'm a 43 year old Firefighter from Manchester with a wife Michelle and two young daughters Isabelle and Lucy. I have owned a Daytona 955i for 2 and a half years now and loved it. I'm currently looking to sell it and buy a good used Speedmaster but unfortunately my listing has just run out on eBay and no takers!
    I've got loads of questions but will post them in the appropriate sections later.
    Anyway I look forward to getting to know you all.
    Thanks, Andy.

    Hi Andy welcome to the forum,not the best time of year to sell a bike, unless you're prepared to sell cheap,although if you do that you should manage to get a Speedmaster cheaper at this time of year so it's swings and roundabouts

    Hiya Andy. Good luck with selling. You're obviously going to have better prospects come Spring. As the old saying goes, Shakespeare 'A Winter's Tale' iirc, 'Winter blight, buyers delight. Summer's come, sell it my son'.

    Anyhows, two things.

    1) Where's the pics?

    2) Red Manc or Bitter Blue? (no favouritism implied,,,,honestly)

    Hi Andy and welcome in. Looks like a nice Daytona so you should be able to move it on as the better weather arrives as others have said.


    By the way, thank you for your service in the Fire Brigade - I'm guessing it can be a tough job at times.

    Hi Andy and welcome!

    I sold a bike about 3 weeks ago and picked up a new T120.
    Thought, I was one of a few to buy a bike in the middle of winter, but learned at the shop that the guy had sold 17 bikes that week... This left me pretty stunned.
    Don't know about the island, but the market seems to be not too bad this time of year here in Germany.

    Good luck and enjoy the forum!

    Thank you very much for your appreciation, it does have some horrendous moments but it can also be extremely rewarding.

    I thought I was the only one too but they're still shifting a few over here aswell!
    Don't know about you but I find it really rewarding coming home after a freezing cold ride out and warming up with a brew (who am I kidding, a beer)!
