I am on the look out for a couple of essentials for the new to me, 1800 that I hope to get on Thursday.

If anyone has the following laying around in the garage gathering dust, I will be happy to part with a few ££££'s for them.

Service manual.... (not owners book that comes with the bike) but a Honda or Clymer type one.

Tow bar + electrics.... very important as I use a trailer, and can't fit all our camping gear etc, in the boxes.

Would be happy to pay the postage on the manual and travel a good distance for the tow bar.... any excuse for a ride, especially if I can lash it on for the return journey.

I would be interested in any other goodies that you might have too, since I am starting with a fairly blank canvas, just rotor covers and a few bits of bling fitted so far.

Thanks for looking folks.

Pete

No, my laughing is because here is a guy who had it all. perfect bike, fully tweaked , comfort, storage space... everything ... and got wrapped up in the "me too's" and now look where he is....

Sorry Pete, it's just too sad.

Been there and done that, 4 times in nearly 30 years and I guess some would say, I should have stuck with the old 1000 that I first had with Vetter fairing and Sigma boxes, but then again, you only live once. Who knows, in a few years I might change my mind again and trike the bike and try some of that too!!!!

I will probably end up spendinga small fortune on chrome that I don't at the moment want and some lights too, but I have to say that there is no doubt in my mind that I am happily moving on.

...... yours sincerely

converted of Croydon.

Hi Ciaran,

thank you for the very kind offer on the wind wings, but I am pleased to say that they are fitted to the one I am buying, so those that you have can go to a better cause than me.

I did contemplate buying in from the States regarding the tow bar, but assumed that even with Cycle Max "preferential" postage system, that it would work out more expensive, but thanks, I will investigate the avenue.

I would of course be interested in the socket, if that is alright.

Cheers

Pete

Hey Ciaran, you don't have a spare bike for free as well do you? Only kidding! It's nice to see the generosity of fellow members on this forum.

Thanks
Dean.
