Hey Tony - you selling Nelli?

Deserting the fold eh?? :bawl:
Yes bud it has to go.( How was the holiday) at the moment looking at a different style. Rode back from Italy, could hardly move my Right arm when i got back. I think i might need a more relaxed riding position.:bawl:

Holiday was fantastic thanks (I would consider spending more time out in Murica (as JR puts it)), No wonder you raved about it. (Didnt get to see a shuttle launch though :( )

I can just about imagine what touring would be like on a Nelli - I've done a few hour stints lately on the Nelli and ma right wrist was feeling it afterwards.
(or maybe I am just not bike fit - or maybe to out of shape !!!)

Cant you get risers for the bars anyway???? :rolleyes:

Best of both worlds - comfort and keeping the Nelli?? :clap:

Drop me a text or PM when your passing thru York/Leeds next if you wanna meet at Squires or ride (whether on a Nelli or a Yamasukihondasaki type :D )

Weather permitting i'll be off up to the lake district on Sunday. Going via penrith for my sunday dinner. The wife and kids are away(even the dog) till monday, and i'll be coming back via Devils bridge, then stop off at sherburn round about 4 ish.:clap: "oh" were do you get them jokes from:rolling:.
Getting back to the trip i did last month. When i was riding from Pisa all the way round to Monaco(that road is awsome:clap: ) i had the feeling i was on the wrong type of bike. That new Triumph Thunderbird came to mind :D I think i had a cruiser moment.

That thought crossed my mind thats why i like the tornado. i don't really want to sell it. so i'am not just going to give it away. maybe the risers might be the answer. hell of alot cheaper than buying a new bike:doh:

Well it looks like i'll be keeping the nelli for a bit yet. it had over 1700 views on fleebay and there is 31 buyers watching got a few offers of 3k but none from the uk. not going to give it away. Just looked at motoGB's web site and now they are saying the silver and green ones are more expensive. i think if i keep it another year i'll still get 3k for it:clap: So it looks like this winter it will be getting the usual strip down and two bottles of polish carressed all over it :D lashings of muck off bike protector and fresh oil and a filter. Besides i still haven't been to a nelli gathering yet:clap: I need those kind of pics on my Gallery:clap: . Were do you get hold of the Benelli forum.com stikers.i must have missed that link. cheers:clap:
