    I think the only way around a poor 2nd hand price is to haggle like hell for a trade-in on another bike...
    To test a man's character, give him (horse) power.

    I can't see one for 3000 ?

    There's one for 3,900 ( Registration is LR64 VEY ) advertised with "Minor Accident damage",
    where the Listing says "See YouTube video of bike running ......",
    but the Link is missing ... so here it is !:



    Note and be aware that at the end of the Video, ( 2'35" ) when the Screen parks,
    there is something obviously wrong as it does not motor down slowly and smoothly,
    so the damage may be more extensive than that described in the lIsting ! :084:

    Klunk!  :008: I'm wondering if it ever powered up after that?  :002:
