    Oh crumbs, where to start...
    Owned a few bikes over the years from Yam FS1E (ended up in the river Ouse circa 1986), MTX80 (stopped abruptly by a parked car) to MT10 which really should be marketed as a unicycle , with SV650, CBR6, Brutale 800 and even an old gal Sprint ST1050 (what was I thinking?) in between. Really missed the CBR6 but needed something a bit lazier to ride so swung to a 2014 blade in full wedding service white. Absolutely love it . Sooo easy to ride, lovely throttle response and obviously capable of recolouring undergarments in quick order. Even the riding position suits my aging bones...
    Good to be here, you all seem perfectly mental, so go easy I'm delicate

    Hi and welcome from your local, friendly, American.

    Who is not at all mental and never, ever seems off or odd. Ever.

    Hello and welcome, I also have a 2014 good choice. Not sure if I’m mental, haven’t been diagnosed yet.

    Hi, and welcome.

    Great to see an owner match his bike to his car colour. Need to do a bit of work on the lawn mower now!:D:D

    (That's not mental - that's straight out observation and assistance;))

    I clocked the white thang myself, think it might be that the bright colour blinds the observer to the imperfections of the rider/driver :D:D At least it's a Honda mower mind [looks around for the white emulsion] :p

    Is that the cleaning regime - get the hound to lick it to death? :D I did have a lecky one before, but the lady of the time managed to cut through the cable and then without any fear, picked up the live end, waving it about saying that the cable was broken somehow. Petrol now. :cool:

    Haha.....hmm I wonder if that's an indication that men who are happy in their marriage buy petrol mowers and those who aren't buy electric :D
    I bet @nigelrb has had some leccy jobs over the years :rolleyes: :D
