    Went to Newcastle Triumph today to put NUDGER up for adoption :sob:
    While I was there I took a look at the clothing section :)
    Been looking for some new leather trousers for a while now and spotted these but the label said £300:eek:
    Feck that said I :(
    For that money I’d want something with an MOT :)
    I’ll let you have them for £125 says the salesman :eek:
    Just then my lift home turns up and off I goes :confused:
    Feck it :imp: I jumped in my super sexy Citroen C1 and went back to try them on :)
    Told the salesman that I’d seen another triumph shop online selling them for £99 and would he price match :)
    No I can’t do that he said :(
    I’ll buy a T shirt if you do I said :)
    Ok he said :)
    T shirt is £31:eek:
    Got to the check out and he gives me a bit more discount :)
    Got these for £127.50:grinning:
    Label’s total £331....bargain :p
    And it’s not even Christmas yet :grinning: DE33E990-65F4-4BDB-A0FC-757716EA7322.jpeg

    Talk about giving poor old Nudger false hope :confused:

    I bet he shot over to Dilli all excited. Wagging where his towbar once was.
    Only to be brushed aside again :confused:

    Christmas is coming early in Dilli's house! :party::party::party:




    Spare a thought at this time of year for poor Nudger, cast aside & abandoned with all the other orphans at Newcastle Triumph, remember a bike is not just for Christmas :sob::broken_heart:

    As this thread of dilli's has serious potential as a place to post details of our bargain purchase of the day. I'll seize the opportunity to do so...

    Just ordered the latest incarnation of the Optimate 4 (I'm too lazy to move my current one between the Bonnie & the MX-5 :kissing:) It's brand new & I got it for £49.99 inc postage. Plus these 7 day digital timers for £10 inc p+p for all 3 :grinning:
    20191103_205820.jpg
    I'll be able to use 2 of them with my 2 Optimates as a fit & forget solution to battery maintenance this winter. The 3rd one can control a set of outdoor Christmas lights :)

    What was your bargain of the day/week?

    That seems like a very good deal @dilligaf. And I'm a bit envious.

    It's a skill I haven't attained. Shops & dealers let me walk out rather than cut me a deal, while our ex-daughter-in-law never pays full price for anything, ever - goods or services. It's a real art form with her, but she does work at it.

    With me it's:
    What deal can you do me on this jacket/bike/car etc?
    Nothing. It's full price.
    I'll walk.
    Sorry, I can't move on that price.
    Ok, I'm walking.
    Fuck off then...

    I go outside, send in a friend and wait...
    Got it half price!
    No way! HOW THE F...

    If you don't ask, you don't get, TBH Mrs Billy is brilliant at getting either serious discount or if that don't work, then something else thrown in with the deal. When I bought a Sprint RS new many years back, she got a Carbon Race Can, Belly Pan & Grabrail thrown in, AFTER she had already beat them up for discount, I actually was in awe of her blatant cheek :blush:, the salesman convinced that she would make me walk away from the deal just caved in :worried::p.

    I was just doing a general search for anything on Gumtree within 10 miles. I've had some cracking bargains from doing that in the past.

    One impulse buy later. We now have 2 half price tickets to see my separated at birth twin brother on Saturday night :grinning:

    Al Murray Pub Landlord live on stage. The seats are 4 rows from the front. So I'm expecting some serious pi$$taking. Hopefully Al is prepared as well :cool: :p

    Edit...
    For the benefit of our American viewers who may have never heard of Al Murray? Here's a taster of his humour.
