"LOL, the BMW your midlife crisis?"

Nah not really, bit too early for that!

My brother in law went to work abroad and I was between bikes.

He had the BM (horrible smoky metallic green/black colour) and said I could have it when he found his contract would be extended for four years, so I rode it for year and sold it on for him after that.

Oh and the CB750FC might have been an FD can’t remember! Best thing about it was I paid £1750 for it brand new, rode it for 13 years (money was tight) and then when I traded it in for the CB500, I got a bike that was as fast and more economical, plus £900 trade in, as the 750 had turned into a Jap Classic!

Doubt that will happen again!

Forgot to say I got the Biffer on the basis of Reviews and a test ride.

The guy in the shop had all the paper work ready when I got back and we did the deal in five minutes!

He later told me that he had never had anyone take out a Biffer and not buy it!
