Or have the Tramadol tablets finally kicked in.....?
If I can get someone to drive my car I'm supposed to be veiwing e-Tecs and Tohatsu tomorrow.
Also the man at Barclays was offering me some cheap money when I drew out the cash today... so we might have to go and look at some brand new ones as well!
i think i will make some stickers saying 250 and have some more fun

There was one on here a while back with a 120 on and even that would probs be a bit rich for me. If I could afford one I think my ideal would be the new Yam F70.

Hope that helps

How much fuel are you using at cruising speed (4000rpm)? Away to look at one this weekend.[/QUOTE]

I reckon about 1 litre a mile at 4000rpm, on my rib that's approx 25mph, get to WOT at around 30mph and its a big shift too as much as 2 litre a mile. Mind you my bikes like that too, under 80 mph ans its 50 mpg, over 80 and it drops off like no ones business
