welcome Karl, I was in your shoes a few months ago (not literally of course). I don't regret the purchase one bit, it's a great bike and this is a great place to find out about it. Good luck with the test!

Thanks for making me feel so welcome guys. is anyone in the Harrow area willing to take a look at a bike for me please? I've agreed a price, but its the gearbox mounts on the car snapped yesterday, so need someone to take a look for me, before I travel up there. (if someone is willing to deliver it too me, (if it is worth having) i'd be willing to come to an agreement. - THANKS SOOO MUCH
