@knucklehead
I dont like it and think it is a piece of shit
It has no brakes, no suspension, handles like a pig in fact the only thing I like about it is the torque

Also sums up my experience on one nicely.... :thumleft: :lol8:
Long live the Underdog.........

Mooi

My wife will no longer come on the harley till i get a sissy bar....which is fair i guess.

I also bought a tool roll for my harley...now i reckon i look like a cowboy with my leather tool roll riding around the suburbs..increases ones coolness factor immeasurably for relatively little money

Yes.

Setup an alert so you get an email as soon as a bike meeting your criteria is listed.
That way you know about it asap & don't have to browse through pages & pages of crap .
Then phone chop-chop.

Times are hard, okes are getting desperate & their toys are being sold off relatively cheaply.
Sad but that's life.

Yes, you do it from Gumtree.
Start a search.
Filter it by all the criteria you require eg : region,price, model, km etc etc etc
Save the search.
If you've set up your Gumtree settings correctly you will now be notified every time an item that meets your criteria is listed.

I have it sending an email to my gmail account & I have my gmail setup on my phone.
The email has links to the adverts which you can click to be taken straight to the ad.
Although not really necessary,  also have the Gumtree app on my phone.
As soon as I get a notification I can check the ad there & then & phone straightaway if necessary.

Hope this helps

Current motorcycle rider research has shown that Harley riders are the only breakers of the lock-down.

Poor okes just could not make home quicker.
