Just out of curiosity, what are DB5Rs going for on the used market? There don't seem to be any for sale over here in the colonies.

Works out around the same price due to the dollar being a bit week v the GBP.... Laughing ...But thats why its difficult to compare across continents with currency fluctuations......

I consider mine to be worth every penny that I paid for it, so I'm not complaining! The chance of finding a comparable moto of any make is virtually nill.
No more thread jack, back to your regularly scheduled thread!
