I wish I still had my NC30. Selling that and the tuono was hard.

Wanna buy another ? i got 2 here i am going to let go this year
Ones got a paintjob, but is MOT'd and very well oiled it goes well and its a good runner. £2500
The other is in bits, complete but a project. all the bodywork was pretty beat, but without a bodykit stands me at £900
I wish, but the shiver and then the cagiva planet that needs sorting are more bikes than I get time to use as it is. Plus I'm changing jobs again for the 2nd time in 12 months and although it's a better job and basic pay, they don't pay overtime so unless I sell the shiver or cagiva I'll have no funds for anything :(

I’s love my RVF400 back but cannot find the owner, hopefully in a few weeks a PPI claim that could cover it too if i could only find the bugger :( couldn’t ride it much mind- just look at it :) had great times on that bike, would have loved a pilly seat or some storage though.

Some interesting answers.

Anyone wanting to go touring on an xr400 / 600 is a masochist.
I made the mistake of going to france on a supermoto.
I realised it was a mistake just south of warrington.
Thinking about it you're right. I like the idea of going back roads/ trails and only doing short mileages each day so I can get to see as much of the Iberian Peninsular as possible and enjoy as much of the local atmosphere and food as possible. Thought a smaller capacity and less comfy bike would ensure I stuck to the plan. But since I'm a Southern shandy drinker maybe, one day I should do it on my Tiger 800.

I'd still like a XR400 or similar for playing around here though.
