Cor, nice looking bikes, the pair of them. It's a while since I've bought a new
bike but there's no feeling like it.

When I bought my BSA it hadn't been SORNed or taxed and there was no grief
forthcoming when I got the new logbook in my name. As far as I know the same
applied when Shez bought it from me. It made me a bit nervous (practically
everything does, of course) but not enough to actually try and SORN it.

He wants a nice little helicopter, he does.

It's pointless trying to take the piss out of the Daily Mail, it's almost beyond
satire. The best bit of the article for me was the library picture of a
mouse[1], all it needed for the full Viz effect was for the caption to read "A
mouse yesterday."

[1]Unless I'm doing them a disservice and they've tracked down the actual cable
eater.

Good on ya man, just what I would have done. I am currently
bikeless but was at the beemer dealer yesterday and have
my eyes on several enticing used bikeys, and will buy one
when I get back from a trip to the east coast at the end of
April. Enjoy!
Cheers to you both,
Jaime

dealers and about an hour & a half later I rode off on a graphite grey
BMW F800 GS with 7 miles on the clock.....

The ST looks nothing like the GS.
