    On order sportback tdi 170 s line,bose,though load system,storage pack,folding door mirrors,centre arm rest,multi function steering wheel,non smoking pack,avus.

    Nice one david do you ever go to british super bike meets
    a group of about 10 of us usually go to the oulton park race and meet other riders at charnock richards services.

    If you fancy going I will post the dates nearer the time.
    Weather permitting.

    Not really Sherlock I used to have a Trek hybrid and did CtoC and rievers route and various rides round about.But since I got back into motorbikes 7years ago cycling has gone out the window.

    I used to have a 'blade...a 1993 RRP model.

    Played with it a good bit...
    [​IMG]


    But, it kept trying to kill me...and very nearly succeeded!

    In the end a lack of confidence and use made me sell it..
    I always promsed myself either another 'blade, or the only car ever to pass me in 6 years of owning it...that's why I have the car I do! :thumbsup:

    The NC30 is very nice, I know someone who has one as a track bike, he's promised I can ride it when I pass my test!

    P.S. Sherlock, I ride a scott mountain bike too, they make fantastic frames :thumbsup:

    Agree they are damn pretty bikes.

    Love my 'Ace. Effortless cruiser, quick enough to scare me and put a big grin on my face at the same time.

    Also, on my commute from Bicester to Oxford, I get better fuel economy than the horrid Er-5 I had before!!

    My only complaint is having to repair the EXUP every 5 minutes...

    Cheers,

    I'm getting a Vespa S50 this afternoon...:w00t: doesn't count does it :huh:

    Still quite excited though, I've never owned a motorised 2-wheel vehicle (I hesitate to say motorbike lol) or a brand new anything so it's a double cherry pop as far as I'm concerned :meeting:

    And if I don't die on it in the next year or so then I may just have to investigate motorbikes a bit more - I think they're gorgeous things, but I'm not too sure about my riding skills :3sadwalk: in a car, any car, I'm totally confident and comfortable...put me on 2 wheels and I'm like Mr Bean

    Hi,

    Yes, but you will need L plates, and you would have to either take a test within 2 years, or redo your CBT after 2 years.
