I would love to buy a Yamaha 500 YPVS (i had a 350 brand new back in 1984) but it would probably result in ending my life.

Still thinking of getting one as an investment though as the price of these is rocketing problem is a decent one is north of 12k.

I had a 1978 MK2 Escort Mexico that was mint and sold it around 1995 for £1500. Three weeks after that it had a mild under bonnet fire and was put in a lock up locally. It’s still there to this day, that was the best investment the lad that brought it ever made!

I got completely fed up sat in traffic about 10 years ago doing about 3. Mph in a very fast car and it’s fair to say traffic is about 5 times worse now that then maybe more.

the car cost a fortune and even had it been 100kplus I wouldn’t have moved any faster - motorcycle after motorcycle came passed and I remember that when I was younger (lot younger) I rode a bike because it was all I could afford 

so then took lessons direct access and then advanced training and now go France Portugal Spain and next year doing Europe 

changed my life and enjoy pottering about takes my mind off work hassles etc even my wife loves getting on the bike

thing is I’m on holidays now in Turkey NO bike :( but the wife insists and here I am looking at the forum lol

get a hobby outside the business “Live to Work or Work to Live”

your choice,,,,

It’s become a habit for me. I’ll look at least 20 times a day and also on xmas day. Too easy to look because I’ve got it set up to go direct to the home screen when I open an app on my phone.
