Thanks All,

Seems there is nothing better to get a debate going than asking opinions
about a particular make of RiB

If it's still available I'll drop down over the weekend and take a look at it,
although it will involve a visit to the mother-in-law!

Thanks for the offer Colin, once you're on the M6/M5 you may as well keep going

A

All depends on user and usage on what Type of RIB you choose...but often too late when you've parted with yer Hard earned!

OK, put it this way, I'd take a Revenger round Britain but I wouldn't want to do an Atlantic crossing in one!

Don't underestimate them just because they're a bit sporty and have bench seats. Not everyone's cup of tea but still a serious bit of kit.

As long as it was t too Rough eh!
Seriously I'm not pouring water on the OPs wine....and I'm sure they'd fit a lot of people's criteria...
Just saying what happened to me.
You pays your money and takes yer choice..No doubt they are very popular....though you might ask why they were.."Taken over"? ...by Ribeye too
