going to see potentially my first big bike tomorrow.

gonna go check out a nice 1999 cat in black and silver at ESB motorcycles in Bolton, its £2000 and looks the nuts and very clean.

will give it a right good going over tomorrow afternoon. Im hoping to P/X my current bike in for a few hundred poonds.

check it out - Cat Link

i will obviously be letting you know if i get it, im hoping for £1600 with P/x and some haggling but will see.

Looks nice! It has had a paint job at some point, so make sure this was for aesthetic reasons and not following a big off.

Good luck!

Hear Hear Paul, Black & Silver is far and away the best...

Hmmm, from Ellie's post it's obvious that size does matter!

Just you be careful once that pussy's de-restricted. Owhhhhh, Matron!

and anyone who's heard Ezzy's will agree with that - plus i've found on quotes it makes no difference - the only reason i still have mine is i'm too tight to pay £80 to have it removed!

first viewing and trial of a CAT Empty wellll

Post  ballio Thu Jul 15 2010, 20:00

the latest viewing was a pile of absolute plop.

the bike was a dog, really tatty, lots of bodging and spraying.

i was not impressed to say the least. The seller told me it was mint. i could have punched him.

plenty more fish in the sea and all that.

im quiet kean to get an alarm cos i live in the armpit of the rat that is wrotting in the anus of manchester which worries me slightly.

pmsl - it could;ve been worse - my mate just bought an MV Augusta only when it got delivered it wasn't the bike he'd bought - he rang the dealers up to let them know they'd sent the wrong bike - they told him the picture they put on the ad wasn;t the bike he'd bought (no shit sherlock!! Shocked ) it was just to illustrate the ad! Needless to say trading standards are now involved

I'd rather get a dog, even a Labrador would be more effective than an alarm. I had my alarm taken out and just chain the bike up. Am also worried about some of the characters that walk past it.

first viewing and trial of a CAT Empty oh year

Post  ballio Thu Jul 22 2010, 22:56

i have bought the Cat!

very nice bike, goes well and is really mechanically sound.

has a few scratches and stuff but is to be expected. gonna spend a few hundred getting some paint work done then shes good to go.

so happy, been waiting for this day since i was about 12 years old, finally got a big bike.

hopefully will be hassling people all the time now about different bits and bobs.
