34,000 miles!

Mate, I always though I had ridden my Tornado the furthest. You've pipped me by 7,000 km!

I assume you've replaced the cam chain & guide just 3,250 mls ago?

SORRY, THAT SHOULD READ 3450 MILES :p . MAYBE I SHOULD SAVE UP FOR A NEW KEY PAD OR JUST STOP MY DAUGHTER EATING WILL SHES ON THE COMPUTER. THAT WAY THE KEY PAD WILL NOT BE FULL OF CRUMBS.
:mad: KIDS. :mad:

WOULD 6000 OF THE QUEENS FINEST BE TO MUCH ????

Spring chicken hey.

Challenge is still out there then.

6k would work for me, except I'm 17,000 km away.

I do aim to get over there for a wander around your fine roads, and have been toying with the idea of buying a Nelli there, then bringing it back to Oz after the odyssey. Not ready yet though.

Sorry to hear that your 'custardised' machine is going-up for sale...I know, from past posts how proud you are of it! :bow:

As to the value: There are not as many buyers looking for a yellow bike -But those that are have a limited choice and some of those can't handle the savage performance offered by the yellow machine! ;)

There is a definite price difference between red and yellow Ducatis and Ferraris...

I'd suggest £5750, not a big difference but a psychological one; in what is proving to be a difficult market place.

One thing is for sure: It'd be a real tragedy if we lost you from the forum!!:bawl:

Good luck with the bike and if I get any leads via 3X I'll let you know.

Regards

Hi friend.

I never ride the bike :bawl: because i'm either at work :bawl: or at the BSB marshaling. :D :D .
I love the bike and it wants riding not looking at in the garage :eek: .
As for a replacement, there is nothing to follow a nelli :bow: and why spend money on another for it to sit in the garage and do nothing.:( .
So if i sell it that will be it for me and bikes for the forseeable future. :( :(
Bugger.. but i just don't seem to have the time.
I'll see wot happens when i come back from germany after the superbikes but i think BENI will go. :bawl:

sorry to hear your possible retirement in bike ownership for now, dont want to keep losing members on here
Pony,

Even if you give-up the bike stick: with the forum! :eek:

Your knowledge is valued and your sense of humour is price-less. :D

This is THE best on-line forum and you have surely earned the right to stay on board.:bow: :bow: :bow:

In the meantime, have a safe trip to Germany...

Hi Lee

Sorry mate but you appear to be confused about the colour of your bike.

I think you will find you do own the MORE powerful, Better looking, MOST exclusive of the RS'S, (ONLY 33) the YELLOW 1 but you are actually colour blind and think its the more comon or garden RED model. :rolling:

When your at traffic lights do they go YELLOW RED GREEN (and silver (did ya see wot i did there)). If so you need to get to the eye doc friend. :D
Mind you i have Know idea wot colour comes after Green cuz i've usually gone by then. :confused: :confused: :doh:

But seriously any RS for £5800 was a cheap RS. :bow: :ele: :bow:
I will be sorry to see him go. :bawl: (if i can actually part with him)

Pony,
It's me - Stefan from Germany!!

No need to apologise for being a bit slow: riding the super fast yellow machine
can tend to suck the oxygen from your brain..:rolling:

Being a 'stud muffin' means that my brain power has 'gone south'.

As to the RS prices: I think that they are unpredictable and nobody in the trade (fanchised dealers aside) really knows what to ask for them.:eek:

One dealer told me that 'Glasses' only showed the standard bike and admitted he bid me a 'finger in the air' price for an RS (a little finger at that!).

Still think you'll raise between £5750 -£6K myself. But happy to be proven
wrong...

Glad you're sticking with this forum! :clap: :clap:

Regards

Pony, I'm as drunk as a drunken thing in drunksville at the moment but I'm chuffed that you're sticking around matey:clap: Look at me, crashed me Tre on the 29-03 and even though another bike may be a long way off I'm still spammin' like buggery;)

Al (It's a fine art learning to talk shite most of the time you know):D
