    I prefer the blade, much easier to live with, used to have an RC30, that was an awesome machine!

    I've been on the lookout. Horrendously expensive now, and most of the dealer ones (except the one at Craigs Honda) are a bit suspect. I suppose we must take into account they're 30 years old now, but like women, some keep their appeal whilst others are just run down and blemished.:(

    I guess you might now wish you still had yours?

    I do but it had to go unfortunately. Everything about it was amazing, well apart from the brakes, they were not great!

    The RGV is a brilliant little bike, well capable of showing a clean pair of heels to bigger bikes it the twistys

    Very impressive Gary and Nigel. What do you do ride them on a rotational basis or something? I bet it is brilliant having so many bikes until of course it is time for tax, insurance and MOT.

    Nice to see the 954, @gary1966 . I suppose the rear rack is going?:) Got mine MoTd today and had my first proper ride. Very punchy and responsive. Seems a fair bit smaller than the 929.

    I have a few of mine SORN for up to 3 months, but in the main, try to run them all (a proper 30-mile run:D) every few weeks.

    You might have seen my insurance post about the multi-bike deal I have with BeMoto. No company could get anywhere near it. MoT is a bit of a handicap. Just found out today I need fork seals on the NS - I problem attributable, in the main, to not riding it:rolleyes:. For tax, I use Direct Debit. doing it that way allows me to tax a vehicle for a couple of months and then SORN and cancel the DD for the next couple of months, giving me an effective 6 months (give or take) tax on all the bikes except my 2011 which is my 'daily' ride.

    I am taxing and insuring 3 bike per year then alter them around the following year and which ever ones that are not be used they get a full strip down cleaned and any other bits that need doing.

    I can’t see the ktm and Kawasaki staying in the stable??
