    Old Boi signs up

    Saying hello. I havent ridden in too many years but now looking to get back on two wheels.

    I am trawling the Classic and Vintage section on Trademe and have added a few to my watch list.

    Looking at Royal Enfield, Triumph and one or two Japanese and other European makes.

    I dont see myself touring but just tooling around my town enjoying the sunny Sundays .

    Regards
    1/32 man

    Howdy.

    They all say that. Then they buy their motorcycle ... and they're never home.

    But ... whatever you get ... enjoy your sunny Napier sunny Sunday rides.

    And you might surprise yourself just how far you can travel on a Sunday.

    Thanks Mr FJ....all I have done so far is put a few machines on my TM watchlist....and had a bit of a dream.

    On the watch list are three Honda Hornet 900's, a Ducati Monster and a couple of Enfield bullets. Usually I look to see where the bikes are, cost, kms, condition and what are they like for a small guy like me.....any input, comments,opinions or thoughts welcome. My budget is around 5k.

    TIA

    And how many times are you intending to own that "Improved" Plastic Maggot ...
