Bikes For Sale / Yamaha MT07 amost new in Red
August 18, 2014, 08:48:15 pm
For sale a Yamaha MT07 ABS in red, bought 18/3/14 by my girlfriend Bev on a whim but she has lost her confidence (don't ask).

224 miles on the clock (all done by me) so not even close to being run in yet. Great little bike, fun even at limited revs and I should imagine once all the revs are available it'll be a right hoot.

Light controls, good brakes, easy handling, comfy etc etc I'm sure you've all read the reviews, there hasn't been a bad one.

I'll take some piccies later in the week but I'm sure you all know what they look like.

Needs to go but not for silly money, the bike is all but new she would like a close to 5K as possible.

JVC KD-BT11 Bluetooth head unit  manual here http://www.dabonwheels.co.uk/uploaded_files/KD-BT11.pdf built in Bluetooth Phone connection and also will play music via Bluetooth for your phone etc.

Misc For Sale / 04 Passat Sport Saloon for sale
April 01, 2014, 03:46:52 pm
Blue 04 plate 130 TDI Sport Saloon.

142K miles, service history, some VW the rest independent. Cambelt and water pump done at 127K miles so not due for a good while. I have had the car just under 3 years and use Longlife oil even though it is serviced at 10k/12 month intervals, next oil service due Nov this year.
4 good tyres, Avon ZV5, fitted and full size spare (on a steel wheel) with a virtually unused tyre.
All interior in good condition, auto wipers and dipping rear view mirror, Climatronic  Auto Air Conditioning, Gama Radio cassette head unit with in dash 6 CD player. Full VW book pack, jack, tyre wrench, locking wheel nuts with key. Towbar with single electrics.
Drives very nicely, tows well, good performance and economy I average 42-43mpg in A and B road commuting , 50mpg is easily possible on a run.
2 remote keys.
Bad bits, it has a little rust on both front wheel arches, this is common and a known issue and can be corrected under the 12 year body warranty I just never got round to it. It is also showing an airbag fault, this is I believe an issue with the slip ring under the steering wheel, a relatively easy fix.
Apart from that it's all good in the best Blue for this model. It is a 10 year old car so does have some stone chips, marks and minor scratches as you would expect.
Mot's to July 2014, taxed to Jan 2015.

£1500 or very near offer (I'll leave the tax on the car for the asking price otherwise I'll take it off and get a refund on it).

Misc For Sale / Luggage For Sale
December 30, 2013, 07:56:00 pm
I have the following for sale due to getting giddy earlier this year and buying some Kreiga kit.

Oxford Sports Hump Back magnetic tank bag (left) and tail pack (right) SOLD. Both used but in great nick with waterproof covers, bungees (for tail pack) and assorted straps. There is also anti slip none scratch webbing cut to fit for the base of the tank bag included. These have been used twice for Scotland and for a week long trip down round Devon a few years ago so do the job admirably. Both have zip off bases and concealed shoulder straps to be used as a back pack off the bike (NOTE the base are not interchangeable). Open to offers as a pair or will split.

Oxford Sports Bum bag/visor carrier, great condition offers.

Small magnetic tank bag (IXS) ideally suited for a Kawa (obviously) brilliant for a days run out if you are wearing one piece leathers, this is big enough for phone, keys, wallet, compact camera etc etc but nice and small to be easy to carry. Offers

I would prefer collection or ninjaforce for all items but am happy to get prices to post if required.
