    Hi Phil to the site mate.

    3,500 miles in 8 years - now wonder it's mint (good find).

    Always makes me wonder why you would buy a bike and spend a fortune on goodies to ride it on average 400 miles a year .

    Whatever it's to your benefit ..... enjoy the new ride

    Probably multiple bikes. I bought a bike for my wife from a guy that had it listed in the local ads. I called and made an offer. His reply was "depends, which bike are you talking about?". Ha, I told him the 07 CBR600RR. He took the offer, so I made the trip to pick it up. When I got there, we walked around to the back, and he opened a rather large shed, and inside there were at least 20 bikes in there, all mint, and on rollers. He rolled some bikes out of the way and pulled mine out. The bike, and all the rest, all looked brand new. He said he was selling because his wife said he had too many bikes. Normally I'd disagree, but yeah, he had too many bikes. No way one person can ride all those.

    Well thanks for the warm welcome

    Yeh the guy who had it was a fettler, the list of extras are as follows

    Nitron rear shock with remote preload adjuster
    full fork rebuild by Brooks suspension
    renthol bars and grips
    bar end mirrors
    radiator cover
    titanium short levers
    and a scorpion can but I think its a full system I'm not really sure tbh
    There was no receipts or info with the bike so I may give the previous owner a bell and see if I can to get a bit more info.
    The suspension seems a bit firm but that's something I can look at later on after Ive got a few more miles on it.

    another pic


    love it hahaha
