    Indeed. If you like that sort of thing, buy an R Nine T Pure. New. For the same price.
    I was just thinking Yesterday. I'm about the age Hitler was when he shot himself. Puts into perspective how little I've done with my life.

    ...their other listings are also what you expect from a classics auction house...prices are what some fuckwit will be dumb enough to part with...I met a woman once who spent between 4 and 6 hundred bucks a month on shit to make herself look prettier, to no avail...it's a cwazy world...

    I almost posted example of just that. You could run a Ducati Scrambler pretty easily as well.

    It surprises me that someone would go to the time, trouble, and considerable expense of having someone build a custom bike then sell it immediately they take possession (I know I'm not really the one to point fingers in that regard....) but still. I suppose people do it with expensive Ducatis or Hardly Ablesons all the time. And maybe they get their custom bike then realise "Well dang it, I am still on a tarted up old thing and I miss my ABS and ESA and IMU" or whatever.

    Clearly they realise that it was a terrible mistake and want someone else to make a similar highly specific mistake.

    Probably a cashed up born again that never made it past the crib.

    Just been through the TM vintage-classic section. There's a few bikes I'd consider. The section is flooded with new/near new Triumphs that shouldn't be listed there.

    Just select the date range and they disappear....but not all of them.
    Saying that I did put a 2016 T120 at $14K on my watch list along with a flat tank Norton and WW2 BSA ( neither of which would be a useful bike)
    There is a 1958 Tiger 100 on there for a good price and I know the owner, If I did not already have a Tiger 100 I'd be down on that.
    DeMyer's Laws - an argument that consists primarily of rambling quotes isn't worth bothering with.
