I won't speculate as to why she is for sale. Actually, I'm not sure it is a "she"

As one of the Flying Test Monkeys, I WILL speculate that we put the most "real" miles on her back in the day. She is pure class. Her offspring are Legion, for they will be many...

Must be a she if it has offspring.

Id offer to take it on as fixer upper ;-) but I think Id need to do some serious gym work on my neck muscles to cope with the acceleration if I was going back on Board again...

Must admit, I'd be interested if it was for sale, but who knows. Think it belongs to the folks that run the centre on Little Cumbrae

I must confess that The Beast is the most exhilarating adrenalin producing rib I have ever had the pleasure of being in and driven

Very sad if she is being left un cared for
