    Ah no worries I didn't realise everyone went so early!

    OK cheers i'm not finishing work until 6 today so probably too late as you'll be shut then? If so then another time as I normally finish earlier.and I want to have a look at the 30th anniversary blade anyway at some point - not that I can afford one but can at least see how good it looks!

    30th anniversary blades are one to each dealer we don't know when coming but should be shortly sold already

    That is what you call a limited edition I had no idea. I'll settle just for looking at the latest blade then.

    Cheers Wozza i'll be up for comiong over to that :cool:

    Agreed, it's such a shame that a paint scheme alone determines 'limited edition'. I wonder if this is because of supply chain issues, and they know a lot of people will want one? I want one but I'd have to settle for a standard bike, and then I'd have to get some chinese fairings and have them painted up.

    I think it's to keep prices and demand high. I saw some on ebay thinking wow lets have a look and they were all sold o_O At £24k they are way out of my range for a bike. I haven't had a new bike since 2003 which was an R1 at £8k everything since then i've bought used and let someone else take the depreciation. These won't depreciate with so few of them and can see their value increasing with collectors wanting them. I love the paint scheme and 214bhp is mental :cool:

    Yep I’m with you there. I’ve never had a brand new bike or car precisely because depreciation is a bitch. The closest I got to new was my SP-1 in 2000. It had a few hundred miles on it, the guy decided he didn’t like the v-twin so took it back to the dealer and got the new blade instead - straight swap. Dealer gave me the SP-1 a grand less.

    I was toying with the idea of buying a new bike now I have the means and finance is accessible but bikes are like women, you have one for a bit then you start looking at others :oops: gets expensive :D
