* an actual model, or a state of being? You decide.

Not convenient!
Arse, personally I would plug that anyway unless you are planning on going autobahn storming or a track day, it's not going to deflate quickly anyway if you use a mushroom and it doesn't hold.

Company bike, motorcycle taxi, new tyres. Too far over to repair. I do a lot of high speed miles on my long commute so I’m not willing to take the risk. Luckily* I noticed it when I was in the bike shop getting a new headlight bulb so it wasn’t too inconvenient 😉

After deciding to hang up my helmet forever this is for sale.

It's got about eight months test left and comes with a spares bike to leave in your kitchen to impress the wife.

It's got a newish battery and cam tensioner/guides. Electrex regulator/rectifier. Rebuilt carbs with new gaskets and properly balanced.

The bad news is the forks are weeping and due to what I think is an electrical problem it's hesitant above about 6000rpm.

I ain't after much but would like to see it go to a good home.
Ah. Just out of interest...'ow much mistah?

:-)
£500 secures this piece of appreciating classic away!

That is rather tempting for two fine* classics, but with no transport for them & no cash. I'm oot.

I did this while going to meet a local advanced riding group. I'm seriously considering joining, if only because it made such a change to ride with people who don't appear dangerous & embarrassing to be near. Does it mean I'm getting old though?

Don't worry, I'm immune to the hi-viz stupidity. I prefer safety black.
