From my experience of hiring on Majorca - try looking via the Spanish and German or no specific language versions of the search engines as they often show up sites for companies that get missed when you search in one specific language. By searching with a Spanish speakers help I found the best deal ...

Re: How Much Mileage Can A Bike Stand?

I had a CX500B that I bought with 23k on the clock , which may have been its second time around, and sold it ten years later with 48K showing ... it was like Triggers broom apart from the frame and most of the engine. :D :D

Re: Getting a bit sick of this.

Easiest option is to do what I did and move to a better area.

Gutless as previously said until all the noise changes and the Vtec kicks in - eventually gets you to 130 and it's boooooring ...
