Going to buy a used bike from a private party , what should I be aware of?
StClair said:You're right there, Michael! They say we get 3 months of Winter, and 9 months of bad weather. It does get a tad damp now and then :histerica - that's why I use Bridgestones - it's worth sacrificing some wear for better wet grip
Thing is, it's not as cold as you might think ('cos of the Gulf Stream), and there have been years when I've ridden at least once in every month. When the weather is good, it's excellent riding up here.
John, I'll change my signature when the bike's nice and safe in my shed - I won't forget! By the way, I seem to have mised something here (or I'm being particularly dense) - I don't recall putting my name on any of the posts I've made - not concerned, but where did you find it?
Any'ow, I'm off to finish my packing - got a 14:30 flight out of here to go and collect the bike - so I'll sign in again on Wednesday.
