Sorry computer crashed in the middle of uploading these!!!!
Nice bike have to say!
Think the Japanese might fit the 'scared the crap out of me' seat design on the litre superbikes ???
I thought PayPal would actually make it easier for someone and as you say I will be bearing the cost of the fees.Paying by PayPal is a secure means and far more trustworthy than accepting thousands of pounds in cash or cheque. Why would someone need to come along with a laptop when they view the bike - if they decide to buy the bike all they have to provide me with is an e-mail address - where is the scam in that?
The bike is now back up for sale due to the previous buyer pulling out today.
sorry the bike is sold or not
I didn't understand
Hi Kay in Essex.
Same question as last contact. Is the TRITON sold or not?
As an Essex girl -
Do you know the 77 club in Southend-on-Sea and "The Blinking Owl" cafe on the A127 just before the junction with A130?
Hope to hear from you. I am in Essex between 2nd and 5th August.
