Suzuki Bandit 400
30/11/2004
My mate Andy is selling his Bandit 400. This leaves me with a dilema. I have secretly coveted that bike since the day I saw it and he's selling it for a reasonable price... BUT I'm skint. I have no money. For two days I have been plotting and looking at my finances for ways to lay my hands on it. I'm considering a collosal move round of my finances and some re-financing. The thing is it's not only a desirable bike but it's perfect for my level of experience. Small(ish) capacity, easy handling characteristics and it's a good size for me to do my bike test on. So not only do I want it but I've convinced myself that I need it. The other thing weighing on my mind is that my little Gillera, that I love so much, doesn't seem to be up to the kind of long distance, all weather commuting that I'm throwing at it. *sigh* Maybe I should put a pay-pal "donate to Mad's bike fund" button on my site... (Yeah right, my one reader's as poor as me I bet)

Mr Way
Now look here, Mad one. You sell a chair or battery from a car -- whatever it takes -- but hurry and get that leaf-blower-on-wheels and set it between your legs, and then rev that sucker up...we need some new material to write about!

Cheers Mr Way, I think it'll take more than the sale of a chair but you're right; where there's a will, there's a... err way. Loved the latest edition of your blog, I really fancy a look at Haiti now. But first I have to ride across the US on a Harley.

Now look here, Mr Way - that's my son you're encouraging there. And I'd rather he was still around for a few years yet, if you don't mind. Motorbikes, pah.... (and, apart from anything else, he still has to come see America. Oh all right, Mad, buy the bike and bring it over here)

True, Gone. Motor bikes are fraught with danger. But with proper fatherly instruction, the main and deadliest fraught becomes nil. Mad, learn to stop grinning, which will prevent unsightly bug build-up on those teeth your papa paid dearly for.

I say, it appears some of the plebian riff-raff have been allowed to comment. That's just not cricket you know.
