Took a short bimble to deliver a present rather than queue at the post office. At 136mpg it was cheaper than the postage 😂4531033B-5BD8-43D7-A05A-D51165931801.jpeg

I think it was on a ps express app, and using pop colour where you can choose what colour you wanted highlighted. It does work well 👍

Someone should snap this up:

Looks like a cheap fix and comes with spares. Van Vans keep their value well and go for upwards of £2k on the whole, so surely a bit of spannering and this could be a good buy.

Where did you put the deposit down on one. I’ve seen multiple posts where Honda UK have said we are definitely not getting them

I’ve heard that seven seas motors in dewsbury who import lots of Japanese bikes may be doing a container run of them if there’s enough interest....

Hi ,

I'm interested in your thoughts as I have been after a RV200 for a while but as you're probably aware they're few and far between. Would you say that there's not a lot of difference between the 200 and the 125 ?

cheers, Bob.
