I can't believe you did that.

What a waste of money.

Good choice in my opinion. Ive jist spent a fair amount on my QS so 600notes for up and down is well worth it in my opinion

Just taking the piss, I get the difference between a DCT and a QS... but I couldn’t help myself with the apparent contradiction (lol)

Insurance paid for. I've included pillion cover so I can take the kids out if they want to (my daughter does, my son doesn't seem bothered) and it's an incentive for Mrs Kwacky to get her leathers out.

Has he ridden the 1090? I was a bit disappointed to be honest.

This is the 2017 model but it's identical to the 2018. It's on Autotrader with Premier Bikes.

or

(link might not work - £9,300

I'll ask my mate how much the AT is going for. There are a few offers kicking about.

I 'll send the info, thanks.

Yes he is riding the 1090 and SDGT on Thursday. He has already test rode GS and Multistrada.

Tbh he is not a quick rider by his own admission and tends to just cruise so he will probably be fine.
