Cheers, thanks for that. Normally turns a few heads at bassetts pole etc. Only selling as I'm a short arse and it's a bit to much of stretch for me on longer runs. Was going to convert it with risers etc but shame to spoil it.

Hi folks, thanks for the kind words and the help with photos. What a great bunch and wish I'd found you earlier, it may have had more miles put on it if I had. Do have a new bike coming soon so keen to sell, but not giving it away due to condition and mileage. Keep watching, keep mailing. Thanks, Steve.

Good luck with the sale.
No need to be a stranger if and when you sell her.
P.s. be nice if you can point the eventual new owner here too.

Cheers

Update: new bike now sat in garage so the Cat has to go. Reduced to £1500 with standard exhaust, £1650 with the posh one. Need to SORN it if not, so wont have tax after next week or so.
No further reductions, it will stay until the season picks up in Spring if not sold.
Also have the old shocker for sale if anyone needs one for refurbishment. The new one's cost a fortune as you know and this can be refurbished for about £100. All offers considered. Thanks, Steve.

Hi Guys, just to say the bike is now sold and as you loose one owner I hope the new buyer David will be joining you. What a pleasure this short time with you has been and I hope the V-Strom guys are as good. Keep in touch and if you see a very shiny black v-strom with a small guy and a big smile, give us a wave. All the best, Steve.

Lol... So just because you haven't got a cat anymore your deserting us? This site would be very empty if all ex-cat owners left when they sold their bikes lol.

Glad you've got your sale you wanted Steve.
Hope you told the new owner about the site.

No need to leave or go on a v-strop. Wink
You're always welcome here.

I'm sure a few on here would appreciate a comparison with the cat once you've gotten comfortable with the v-storm.

Cheers
