Oh dear.......

Post  gus on Tue 03 May 2016, 8:49 pm

I sold Carol;s  beloved Triumph Bonneville . Ten years and 100,000kls from new (all hers ,trouble free from new )she said  it was time for something lighter .
She got $4000 cash and someone got a very good bike .Trouble is ''''''''''''in less than 24 hrs i spent the 4 grand on something for myself .
I couldn't help it ,it was looking at me calling my name so i bought it . Yes its another bike ,it was $4000 and its got a FUCKING GIVI on the back .
Any guesses ?

You'll need the Givi for all your worldly possessions when Carol finds out Razz

If you were closer I'd buy the Givi off you.

are you talking Givi or Ducati there Re-Cycled Wink

If it was the newer "less boxy" Givi I'd buy it as well, my only regret is not going bigger with the Top Box

The V46 is not macho enough for the VStrom Laughing boxy is what is required. Boxy with aluminium panels... even better. Very Happy

Top marks Ewok , 900ss  that's about all I know . I started it once then went back to another project .I have drunk a few beers looking at it though .

I bought this for $200 yes $200 . The gearbox was stuffed but the idea was to repair it . After pulling it down and with 160,000 kls on the clock it wasn't viable . (and I own 2 already ) .It went well just no 4th or fifth gear .

I grabbed all the parts I wanted and advertised the rest .$200 never looked so good .

Also I bought this in a pile of bits for $1000 , needed a seat $50 and exhaust $70 and a paint job $20 (rattle cans )
It was great fun to ride but a 100kl trip was a mission . Sold it to the same guy who bought Carols Triumph .
They ask big money for these things , I tripled my money and it still was $2000 cheaper than the average . Would have liked to keep it but I live out bush , nothing is close .
Anyone notice something missing ?
