Hello from Belfast!

Post  tvr0408 on Tue Mar 15 2011, 14:31

Hi,

Firstly, so I can't be accused of lying about anything; I do not (as yet) own a Thundercat! Hopefully that will be rectified in the not so distant future - hence joining up here.

At the moment all I have is a wee 2002 125cc Varadero (mainly because it was a mates and came at the right money!). Also have use of a ZZR 600 every so often.

But....and this is where you all come in (hopefully Very Happy ), the plan is to replace the varadero with an older Thundercat. I've always wanted a Thundercat ever since an ex boss of mine had one in the late 90's. Not being blessed with massive earning (and a wife and 3 kids to spend it) its always been unjustifiable (school shoes or Thundercat.... violin ). Now however I have the varadero to help things along! So basically the plan is, sell the varadero and use that cash to buy the Thundercat. Simple!

Anybody got any idea what a 2002 Varadero with 14k miles on it would be worth, and more importantly, anybody want to swap!! Laughing

Hi & welcome!

I had a Varadero 125cc as my first bike, they're ace bikes and they really hold their money well.

You'll love the 'cat it's a great all round bike and cheap to run too.

Hope you get sorted!

Thanks for the welcome folks.

Beginning to get that 'kid a christmas' feeling now that I'm a step closer to Thundercat ownership!!
