Hi, can you let me know of any bike shops you recommend for me to visit with a view of changing my bike. I'm a bit out of the loop and I'm struggling to actually find many that do a decent selection of second hand bikes.

Cheers,
Stu.

Hi Stu,

A recommendation can be a bit hit and miss, what one person likes is no good for some else. †As you may well know I use Poole Motorcycles and after 5 road bikes and 11 off road bikes I would buy from them again. †So why not go along and ask for Andy (the boss) and see what he has to offer you. Mention my name, it just might help.

Happy hunting †Alf. †

Hi Alf, thanks.
I meant I don't actually know where bike shops are nowadays, some of the obvious ones like Sideways have gone, I just want to know of shops that do a modest range of 2nd hand bikes..
I'll also watch for your next food run and say hello...

Well,I went close, nearly swapped the Klv for Drz, but decided against it.
Then nearly just let it go as they needed some stock for the shop, but again coughed at the 11th hour...
So I've still got the Orange chugaboom..
I will trade it, buy only against a 'proper' supermoto, IE, one with more than 70bhp....if you know of one at a dealer, let me know!
Oh, boring fact, the klv has lost hardly£500 in showroom value in about 6 years or so, not bloody bad!

Have you seen my car Coolbrand.....it's a tiny little 2 seater sports car, so no , not even Rossi would fit ! Most of him is in boxes ( Richard trying to fix the fuel line ) so perhaps he would fit at a push !!!!
