It's been an education for me and all. I had NO IDEA it was going to be this much hassle. The other two times I've just picked a couple of things out of Loot and bought either the first or second one I saw. Incidentally the GT550 where the seller's stopped talking to me does look quite promising. It's from 2001 with 18,000 miles on the clock. But it's in Warminster (Wiltshire). I was hoping my friend in Bristol might go and have a look but it's a bit of a trek and he hasn't got a spare day at the moment. We don't know any bikey types in that neck of the woods do we?
