Hi from the Isle of Wight :)

Post  Goxethee on Sat Apr 14 2012, 06:05

Hi everyone, I bought my cat off ebay last 'summer' (could have been a REALLY stupid move I know) & rode it down from Preston to the Isle of Wight in pretty much the most hideous weather I've ever ridden in... turns out I bought the best bike in the world Very Happy Am hoping to get in touch with the guy who tarted it up, as it has quite a few mods & I'm not sure what they all are, never having owned a standard cat...

That's a really tidy bike. Cool

It's also Tomcom's favourite colour, he raves about them all the time. green smile

The more you look at the picture of the bike the better the bargin, some one spent loads of money on it. Crash bungs on the rear pegs? Ohlins shock, new grips/bar ends and rear sets, and anything else that can't be seen in the photo? Worth the trip to Preston.

Thanks everyone - I only bought it cos it was yellow! I didn't want another 'road-coloured' bike, and I have to say since I've had this one I've had fewer cars pull out on me Smile I didn't realise how fancy it was until I actually went & picked it up, the pics on ebay were shite. The description said something like 'quite a few mods', which is no help :/ I'll have to try & make it up to a ride-out so you guys can point them all out to me - I haven't yet seen another cat on the island so have no yardstick :/

Hi G,

Very nice looking bike. Mine was off eBay and I didn't have any issues at all.

Just been up north so maybe next time it could be down south?

Hi and welcome to the forum.
Lovely looking bike you've got there.
Be great if you can make it to one of the main rideouts.
Although the southern softies have threatened to bring a main rideout to you.
Leave the wellies at home though Wink

Cheers

Welcome, nice looking Thundercat.

I remember having a great blast on the Isle of Wight back in 1986 on my original RD350YPVS. Small island, good fun
