it is a runner...just needs a bit of 'tidying'...I just put it up as an example of a bike you might not have thought of...You can't get a better ' 2 up' seat than that on many bikes these days.:smile

here my list so far of what bikes I can look at

bikes I want in order :

futura
x11
vtr (found good bar risers)
speed triple 
hornet 900
zrx1100

and so far all been a pile of sh*t
will go see the last futura on my list on thursday hopefully but after that exhausted my list 
and not much worth traveling to england to see ether and expensive to get there
so it may come to what bike do I see worth just taking :lol: (if only I was that dishonest)

1000 sounded bloomin gorgeous to me... Try having a look at b & b motorcycles in darwen-they're good blokes and seem reasonable cost wise! Know a few folk that hav bought bikes off them and never had a problem-they were lovely with a thick wench like me as well when i turned up and let me try lots of bikes that they knew were well out of my price range just so i could see if i liked them or not-i didnt end up buying one from them but i should hav done really as it'd hav saved me a whole lot of heartache over the baby blade..... Not sold so looks like i'm keeping my toy LOL
