Don't know but sounds interesting, were is it?
There's a plack were the old Leyland clock once was,
and do you happen to know were the Jungle was?
It's a very quiet road now.

I rode up that way earlier in the year and got caught out in a blizzard and 40-50 mph winds going over the Shap. Was an interesting ride from Samye Ling in Eskdalemuir down to the Isle of Man boat from Liverpool that day, wouldn't want to repeat it...…….

X-max went in today for the 6000 mile service,
all OK and they fitted a new disc and pads to the front under warranty,
the pads need bedding in but the braking is now smooth as it should be,
£135 all in they are saying about £190 for the 12000 mile as it includes
a belt change.
Dont know what they cleaned the engine and exhaust with but it shines like a cats bum in the moonlight.

I put a deposit down on a Xmax 300 over the weekend :)
I was dithering over the Yamaha or Forza 300 but the extra power won it.
Don’t know yet what colour it will be because there is a shortage and they are getting me one from another dealer that has stock.
Yamaha are not getting any new stock in until December.
Trading in a 1000cc Suzuki Vstrom for a 300cc scooter, I must be mad :D
Did a similar thing many years ago, traded a GSXR1000 superbike for a 650 Burgman, never regretted it :)

Some things never change....and its not as though you get 10 colours to choose from!!! I wonder how these people stay in business sometimes.

Sorry but colour is important to me. Really don't think I could purchase anything without knowing what colour it is. Did you get a price reduction because of this ?

Yeah....but its not unknown for these ads to be purely feats of imagination if you actually wanted to buy one...

TBH I don’t like any of the colours available, I have given them my preference of Blazing Grey but not fussed. I am not a colour person!
The dealer did get a white Xmax 300 in for me from there other dealer to view, but because it sat in the shop for a few days before I could get to see it, someone took a shine to it and bought it.
When I went in at the weekend I did get to look over the white Xmax 300 and have a sit on it.
The sales guy also opened up the seat using the emergency key, very impressed with all the storage space!
I have owned 3 x Burgman 400s, 3 x Burgman 650s, Honda Silverwing and a BMW C600 in the past.
But none of them have had as much space under the seat!
