I would consider a XT660Z but would rather have my sister in a whorehouse than my brother on a XT660R  ;D

Laurika,

Tell me what you'd be prepared to pay for this one is it stands.



Get someone who know's these bikes to come round and take a look, and give you an informed decision. I will be prepared to sell it if the numbers are right, with all the farkels on the bike.  :deal:
PS, It can be the metallic grey bike in 15 minutes.

regards

Al
