It was classic stitch up Kurt and if the real richard turns up at any future events i may not believe its him :rolling:
Things regarding LE's are on the back burner until late this year or early next(well thats what lisa thinks lol ) but i've been enjoying my RS at the moment too much to think of replacing it lately but you never know Richard may wrap his spare LE up for xmas (to Goose lots of love richard xx) :rolling: :rolling:
sorry guys ,but is this thread meant to lead someware ?
i like you all work bloody hard and when ebay / adverts selling stuff make it an open market for purchasing whatever you want ,should you have the cash ,what we all spend it on is our choice .
and the reasons are our own .
re the brand i am very passionate having owned and own quite a few of there new brand since merloni started it . including scooters ,and own numerous de thomaso benelli range .i have been a benelli fan since 16 when i saw my first 250c
i also through being passionate took the time to go to the rallye weekend and wanted to see and enjoy the ambience of the people behind this marque .
and also have a beer or two with my friends from the region .if the rallye was not on that weekend ,yes i would have loved to come to silverstone .
i like a lot of people all over the world like collecting some could say its stupid ,wife does tell me sometimes . but hey she likes shoes .ha ha .
i believe for all you future prospective LE owners i am doing nothing wrong there are still new ones for sale and with a warrenty and half the price of original , so dont whinge moan go and buy 1 .
i feel sorry for those that paid full price and now they have really devalued .
i will say they are the wealthy ones as when they first came out I COULD NOT AFFORD ONE .
Its all meant as light hearted fun Richard - its not meant to go 'anywhere' as you put it.
Maybe you can get yourself along to the next gathering we have in the UK and you will realise that we are all just normal folk you enjoy a laugh and a joke (often at others expense !!) and all happen to be passionate about Benelli's.
Look forward to seeing you sometime in the future fella
As the other guys have said Rich, don't take it too personally. If the truth be known, we would probably all do the same as you if only we had the dosh. By the way, what are you doing the first Bank holiday in May next year?
