Hello from a new member!

Post  P3t3R on Mon Jan 26 2015, 17:19

Hello to everyone,

A big hey from Wigan.

had my Cat 2 weeks now and am just ironing out what seems to be the usual bugs ready for the dry times...
She came with a full 12 months MOT and not a single advisory ( for her age i think thats amazing) all iv done so far is give her a new Gel battery and had to buy a new exhaust as the link pipe had rotted away at the clamp.

looking forward to good times on her, anyone else from near me ?

Goodridge braided hoses, SS downpipes, carbon flush repeaters & black double bubble visor.

cheers guys! Yeah i saw a lot of the red & white and all red Cats but this was the only black one when i was looking Smile
I actually looked at a Thunderace and insurance was even cheaper but was too far away and a little over budget but happy with my Cat....
Keep seeing black ones with gold wheels though and im thinking of making that jump.... Thoughts ?
