They're going for £20,000+ now. Bloody BREXIT :wall

No need to panic, a brand new Z900RS is yours for £10200 quid.



The Z900RS is the best looking road bike currently available IMHO. Not got the power of the MT10, but I like the retro looks.

You should take one out for a spin.  I didn’t even manage to get a mile from the dealership before I’d pulled a wheelie.  It can be civil, but it’s an absolute brute when you try and spank it. 
Was hoping to try the CB1000R tomorrow, but it’s forecast rain, so maybe not.

Not seen one in the flash, but the photos do now’t for me. 

And if we do crash out of the EU at some point.  My advice is, go directly to your dealer of choice and sign up for a brand new bike - it may be your last chance to get a new bike as prices will soar and dealers will go bust.

But pre referendum it was 10k on the road.  Now it’s 12k.
Wonder what sort of discount I can get.
Bloody BREXIT.


You know the rules...NO discounts with BREXIT :deal

Anyway why on earth would you buy a Z900RS over a Speed Twin?
If you want cool retro looks in a modern bike then the speed twin hits the spot.

That's a bit like saying why on earth would you buy a red bike instead of a blue one. It's all down to individual taste. There's no right or wrong answer.


I don't like like that angular 'Transformer' look of a lot of new bikes, but people still buy them :\

When the Z1 came out in '72 the Bonneville was looking crap. In' 68 when the Bonneville looked gorgeous, Japanese bikes looked crap (Honda 750 was '69) ;)
So you choose your retro carefully  :)

We all have our own individual opinions and likes. Would you believe it, some people even voted for Brexit  :eek

My take on it: this is a nicely taken shot of an ok looking bike:






and this one is a crap angle on an ok looking bike:

Or,





But you could have had:





Which in my view, is a better angle, taken by a complete amateur snapper, of a very nice looking bike.


An insightful post from VNA though  ;)

You've been reading the Guardian! :eek
Anyway, if you remember the polls in 2016 put Remain ahead. Tactical voting on the 23rd could destroy the frogface one.

I wonder what excuse Remain will use to discredit the results this time if The Brexit Party do well in the election?.
They can't use the old 'People didn't know the full facts' chestnut, because we are constantly being told that we do now and that's why a second referendum is required.
Maybe it'll be the 'They were fibbing!' favourite? :lol
But then again if Remain are to be believed virtually no one wants Brexit, so maybe The Brexit Party won't win anything :\ .

I expect they'll hurl insults at Nigel Farage if they get hammered by The Brexit Party.

 Nigel says that the policy of the BREXIT party is not to have a manifesto. :eek
 
I guess, sort of vote for us and see what you get.  Maybe they should call themselves the lucky dip party.


Worth watching – Andrew Marr absolutely destroys Nigel Farage.
