My C90 has gone :cry: sad but it was for Jax but she couldn't get on with the gear shift so i'm looking at a couple of scooter twist and go types

Whaaaaat!!! No way, I didn’t realise it was gone.... is it somewhere in a giant puddle??
I rode a twist and go 125 around Mallorca for a week and it was really quite fun!

No , she still lives , sold her to a very excited French guy , i was sad to see it go but it makes more sence for us to have a cheap twist and go apiece, Jax always fancied the Vespa type ones so we'll see

Any ideas of any Scooter/Motorcycle Insurance companies to try online guys? I've had quotes tonight ranging from £67 to £106 at the minute for the 2005 Honda Innova 125.

My Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 fully comp is about £85!

Still searching.....

No, not as yet. I'm with the Post Office Insurance (which is Devitt), I'll give them a call tomorrow etc...

Looks like I’m joining the small is fun club.
Picked this up for £40, no spark, but I’ll have fun fixing it.

wOOw you got an absolute bargain there for the money - so much enjoyment tinkering at them (as I've found out recently). Please keep us updated with your fixings... Is it a 70cc machine...?

Big Bird, my V-Strom 1000, has flown the garage and left this little sparrow in her place.

Safe flight to your new home Big Bird, hello & welcome Sparrow :mrgreen:
