Making the obligatory introduction
« on: January 19, 2017, 01:41:30 am »
Names Mike I'm from Bolton in the UK and I haven't owned a car for nearly 15 years now. In that time I have primarily been riding ST110's & CBR110's (currently own 3 birds, long story lol)

Always fancied the GTR and having quit smoking decided it was time for a slightly newer bike to join my "fleet".

Dealers just needs to get replacement F&R TPS in and then the new rear tyre that was needed for the MOT can also be fitted.

Bike is an 08, 2 owner with 7k miles on her





Pepsi, Tango & Coke

Wow, 2 previous owners and they only put 7,000 miles on that bike in 8+ years.  I have a 2016 model that has over 10,000 on it already and think I don't drive it enough.  I hope you will not neglect riding this bike as previous owners have!

Oh I can pretty much guarantee it will more than have doubled by this time next year :)

Welcome Mike!

I must be missing something, or I haven't have enough coffee yet this morn.

In your original post your 'new' bike is a C-14 but the one in the dropped pic is not a C-14?
