Default might be something might be nothing,dunno.

had a gentleman arrange a veiwing/ride of my blade.
he duly turned up,on his tiger(flourescent green)informed me he was a bike copper in conversation and we swapped bikes for test ride.
he promplty disapeared on mine,i went round block on his and then waited 20+mins for him to reappear.

when he did,he wandered over and informed me my clutch was f!$%ed and there was no oil in the window so out of oil bla bla.
the levers are adjustables lol,plently of clutch,and the oil doesnt show when its hot or running only luke warm or cold and is exactly right level.
suspicion bell ringeth...
after getting shot of him (though he appeared to be a little panicy for some reason)
so if he comes to see your bike BE WARY cos he was up to something else im sure,i see he now doesnt want a sportsbike,he now wants a cb500 which is a lot different to a blade.
i dont think hes a bike copper at all either.had a fonecall after informing me, my blade was seen nearly getting killed on a roundabout approx 5 miles away and was it me?.

might be something might just be another nob.:thumbup:

Maybe he was a bit stressed over the roundabout incident? Incidentally, when he took your blade for a spin, did you have his licence details? Mate of mines let someone take his bike for a test run, got a speeding fine through the post. Now he's having difficulty convincing the cops it wasn't him

Item location Slough, Berkshire, United Kingdom.


If he comes from Slough, he's probably dodgy.

Matbe he thought he'd like it, went for a ride and decided big fuck off sports bikes didn't suit him, but rather than admit it made up some bullshit so it didn't look like he hadn't got any balls...

it initially started going oval when he announced he only had one mot cert and had "lost" the service book.but apart from the damage is was a tidy bike and motor was v quiet,unusual in it self for a triple,they rattle lots normally.

it was only when he came back and waffled bollox about my blade that i became deeply suspicious(i know but im old n years of d+d have taken their toll).
besides i want a tiger for my blade..lol.can i find one,can i feck.

birds got it in one i think,unless theres some other scam going on,hard to keep up with them nowadays,

got twatted in my astra tother day,within minutes of swapping details i had a fonecall from some firm saying i could claim thousands for my accident i just had.
how the fk did they know i had accident?..gotta be a scam,tother driver details was false n all,not that thatbothered me astras worth fk all...
