    Thanks to Skippy for the generous loan, youm the Top Boy!

    However, Epic Fail!

    Got the rack all mounted no probs, lifted the bike on & the car didn't look right, but with my cavalier attitude I thought waht the f**k, off we go down the street, hit the brakes, there aint any!

    Struggled to turn the car around as there was no steering either.

    Got back to the house to check & the front of the car is very high.

    I think the weight of the bike, plus the overhang passed the rear axel makes the whole lot like a pig in high heels.

    Thanks again Skip, will pop the carrier back to you in the next day or so.

    Everyone selling 2 strokes are retarded, or have been adversley effected by breathing in the 2 stroke fumes lol!

    Bike 1, driving down to collect, call seller, he says "emailed you 2 hours ago to tell you I sold it to my mate"

    bike 2, offered & accepted 1700, arranged to collect the following saturday, called the next day " sorry mate, sold it this morning for 1400, oh your welsh, im coming to cardiff tomorrow, if I knew I could have delivered it for you!

    Bike 3, just been in mounters & had 800 spent on it, when I go to view it, looks like its seen 3 tours of basra. Can I see the bill fom mounters, 1 pais of boots, 1 helmet, gloves, race shirt, the obvious monster energy stickers & a set of front brake pads. Only the brake pads were included in the sale.

    So I'm keeping the dr, I loves 'er. ner ner ner nah!

    I may have to dig my trailer out of my dads garage affraid
