I would thoroughly recommend Moto Corsa to buy a bike , no trying to sell me gap insurance or extended warranty , no trying to knock the part exchange price down , a new bike cover thrown in , MOT for life if you get it serviced there and a latte to warm me up , it would even be a nice ride on a sunny warm day .

:028: ride report to come  :038:
The sun had come out and the roads had dried a bit but it was still very windy when I left Moto Corsa , but I still enjoyed the ride home , had to take a detour over the Mendips and down through Burrington as the A37 was closed , the riding position is very neutral and relaxed , the engine is very smooth , the clutch is very light , the gearbox is very smooth , the  bike has plenty of torque low down which makes cornering very easy , plenty of grunt when you open it up , the handling is excellent , I had no issues with the OEM tyres , the exhaust is very loud when you open it up , I will have to wear ear plugs , the seat is firm but roomy  but I didn't buy it for touring , the bike is in excellent condition and looks awesome  with some nice mods , only 3300 miles on it , I paid 8499 and got 4000 for the Ducati , I feel like I got a bargain .

Great bike, best colour, suits it, for me.

And that's today? You wouldn't be collecting a bike over here, need a 4x4 to go local shops, safer in hiking boots. Snowed bad overnight Friday, then another 4 hours of it today. Glad I'm retired at times like this.
Also: '16 Tiger 800, '95 Yamaha Serow, '58 Ariel FH.

Wow, that brings back memory's.   My first new bike I bought in Denver whilst in the military, first bike was a KZ650 custom.  Looked at the 900 and 1000's  on the floor, being my first bike didn't want one that big. Didn't take long and wish I had.
Loved the looks of that era of design. 

Enjoy, looks like a blast.
