Mt500 wanted

Post by Joseph907 » Wed Apr 11, 2018 11:36 pm

Looking to get my first proper bike after passing my test. I'm based in London, willing to travel for the right bike. I'm not after a project, something I can ride away please! Thanks

I like your enthusiasm for an MT but bear in mind that any 30 year old bike will not have quite the same ' Just ride' capability of a modern bike, they need some maintenance

The standard 500 is kick start only and has drum brakes, the engine needs a few miles to warm up Very few have them as a daily rider and for many if not most are a not their main form of transport

Well maintained and ridden with forward planning , they give good service and have character Poorly maintained, a nightmare

Ok, thanks for the info. Would an MT350 be usable for a daily commute?

Depends where you're commuting to , a 350 is good to cruise at 55-60 mph ,. 500 has more for motorway use .
If you have a long fast motorway commute there are sportier bikes that will do it better .
MT 350 or 500 is great round towns and A roads

I do have a said beast for sale
Spent bit of time preping it for the mot
Everything now works as it should
And an addition to my life makes it surplus to requirements
I ain't going anywhere on that was the response to what I thought was a reasonable statement
Looking for ÂŁ1500
