I'm zero, aka Biggles, located in the midlands of merry old england.
A friend of mine as found a burgman 250 for me which I've only got to go and pick up
A couple of years ago I owned this..
Honda cn250, I fitted a huge topbox and it was really a terrific bike, I'd love another but they seem to be rare now.. I rode it in the wind rain and snow (and occasionally a nice day or two) and it was faultless from the off. I really liked the bike but got rid of mostly because I missed gears, kickstarts and all the other rigmarole involved with a "propper" bike. (I had owned several "propper" bikes before this, 3cx's a transalp, bros, gs500... you get the idea..)
That propper bike went eventually, two others also.. Now I own
My plan was to commute on the cb400 and mz, but the cb is really far too shiney and really not all that comfortable, so now its being sold on ebay. I was going to "fix" it but it'd been worthless after that and a winter of salt would have finished it off!
So now my plan is to get myself another uber scooter (can't seem to find a cn at the mo
) and use the mz when I'm in the mood and the burgervan when I want to get to placements or uni without any fuss/drenching.
I'm very much looking forward to push button starts and weather protection! while its quite nice now it'll not be long before a few months of rain addled misery! The cn was wonderfull in that sense, the burgervan has a big ugly shoes to fill but I'm told they are superior in a few ways, cant wait to get on it and go for some bimbles!
Anyways, hello all!
