Bad Penny

Postby Huw » Mon Sep 12, 2022 12:45 pm

Yes, like the proverbial, I have reappeared, older but no wiser.
I have not yet changed my “bikes in my garage” bit but I no longer have the BCR and I have been having withdrawal symptoms which led me to a new Bike Shop in town and in the back under a very reasonable price sign was a low mileage ‘98 R1100S in black not DDP! Nearly 25 years old and a claimed mileage of 23k, would you believe?
Now a question for Admin: should I post a pic showing the reg no in the hope that the previous owner(s) will see and comment on the mileage/history or would that be wrong?
I am so tempted to just buy and risk it!

Hi Huw,

I don't see any harm in posting the reg to see if anybody on here knows the history. Looking forward to seeing you in Wales on it in October :wink:


You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Doing an mot history check online at the gov website may help substantiate the mileage if nothing else?
