Further to reading a few nice words from Brian.....they were so nice, it may convince me to return...for guest appearances, and the like....Been busy doing a few things...mending a few bridges...taking care of old folk and the like...One such mended Bridge, is with my brother...who first got me into this "biking lark"...but doesn't do it himself no more...but without such I wouldn't have got to meet all you nice folk out there...he's currently looking for sponsors for his cycle ride from Manchester to Blackpool...for Christies Hospital...who looked after my Mother before her untimely passing from Cancer...Should anyone feel inclined to sponsor him...they can do so here...and they take paypal also...

A bit of calling on favours, granted...if theres ever been any offers of "the beers are on me"...or welcome at mine anytime etc....more than full repayment would be accepted here...

And in return if anyone needs any help....Workshop manual etc etc...I'll gladly oblige

A similar story with my brother. I bought my first bike from my brother in 1988... a 1982 XT200. As it turns out my brother isn't in to bikes any more either as the XT200 was his first and last bike Laughing

My brothers still into bikes.....but has only a tiny shed to house garden implements....not helped by the fact that when he bought it off ebay the plan dimensions were spot on....but its height of 3ft 6inches he failed to notice until it arrived....with his concrete base already laid and ready....Plan is to insure him for my bikes come July renewal...its only 20 or so to add another biker to my policy........Hes already ruled out DB1, DB2, and Vdue due to high footpegs....

A big thanks go out to 2 No. Forum members that have contributed 80 so far to his charity ride....both done anonymously.......Much appreciated...my brother is now shaming his Facebook friends of 67No. for not contributing anything so far...so whilst his "pot" of collections is climbing...His tally of Facebook friends is gradually shrinking as he is one by one unfriending...Oh me.... Embarassed

Shouldn't have to sign up or create an account......and yup...they take paypal...they do ask for some details so that they can reclaim tax...but not necessary to fill all that out if you are overseas.....

Don't tell me...let me guess....Previous German owner has found the missing carbon infill panels from inside the fairings and has posted them out without even a request from you???

Or...knowing your luck...its more likely to be a recently purchased complete Zard cat free exhaust system complete with squishy Zard carbon cans...just so you can have yet another spare set of pipes for a Bimota.....Was your Grandad a "pipe collector" by any chance? You must have at least ten spare sets tucked away by now.....
