The Bike... If you can call it that!
« on: January 22, 2023, 02:38:53 AM »
Here it is.

I used to have an SR 125 back in the old GBBiker days, It died after doing around 50,000 Miles.

I got a YBR 125 Custom that was then stolen and burnt out and then I got it replaced with another YBR Custom... and then that was also stolen a few months later!  :soap: :smirk: Never found.

So I could only afford this mess.

in the dealers we sold a bike to a bloke in central London who had a 98 CB500 nicked- his insurance stated his new bike would have to be alarmed, immobilised, GPS tracked, data tagged, 12mm Thatcham Gold chain, lock & ground anchored at the rear, disk locked up front or they wouldn't cover him.

The new bike was a 2 year old CB500X worth £5500, the extras totalled £3k (with 1year tracker subscription) annd his insurance was £3k a year...   :crazy:

I said move somewhere else!
