Repeat offender in West Yorkshire

Post by Wharfe » Sat Dec 01, 2018 6:25 pm

Now then...
Once upon a time (like, 10 years+ ago) I was the proud owner of an MT350 - fine machine it was too, got me back into biking, and, possibly literally, saved my sanity. I posted here under the alias of Bingoronnie. The bike got nicked, I got married (the two events unconnected) and I dropped off the forum. Still biking, still married, still sane, just about, and very possibly soon back in the market for another MT350 . So, here I am. How do? Hoping it's the same friendly helpful but irreverent place it was back then and hoping no-one's grown up too much.

Welcome back
The forum is significantly less active than it used to be, but it is still here

There are far more events than years ago and more MT fettling ( Check out Deadgrass MT- he lives in your neck of the woods) Sportax offers mechanical support courtesy of Minter.

Thanks all! Cheers for the advice etc. Don't do facebook unfortunately (as I am innately antisocial, I don't meet the entry requirements for social media :lol: ) but will find a way onto it I'm sure. There is a geezer near me called diesel Dave Varley who advertises on t'Bay, I was planning on paying him a visit sometime soon.

Welcome back. The White Rose Army marches on! I will ask the lad that's selling the 350 to post it on here. I think you have a better chance of buying a well-sorted bike if you get one from a club member. He's in North Wales but I can vouch for the bike. North Wales isn't too far away, especially when Sheffield is close to Ilkley (well, I suppose it looks it from the wrong side of the Pennines :lol: ).

Sadly its my bike thats for sale in North Wales. I will be gutted to see it go, the only reason for sale is two children <3 and lower income due to job change have made things awkward.

Doing a deal with myself to say I will not let it go any cheaper and if it does not go for what I am asking I will keep it.

Took it for a ride today and it started on the button. Its a shame because two friends are on MT's locally and we do quite a bit of laning.
