    Not sure if there is a thread for these people actually confessing to their crimes? Are there more out there? 'Marks baja, and then I made it shit'.

    To paraphrase some of my British friends..."What a wanker!" Jag off thinks loud pipes make him safer. At least the brown seat matches the skid marks in his underwear.

    Yup, I can begin to understand the fiddlings of a technical numpty who thinks they have a clue because they've watched 20k youtube videos, but those last two? Erm... what?? Clearly they know their respective way around a bike, so why would you do such things? "Because they can" is of course a completely acceptable answer, but surely they could apply their talents to something a bit less pointless?

    A rich vein indeed.

    Cheers... Paul

    Wash your mouth out, Benlys are brilliant bikes. In the 90s used to be able to pick them up in good condition for 200 UKP then run them in complete neglect mode and marvel at their ability to keep running. My best score was a red 1974 CD175 in mint condition for 150 UKP, just needed a silencer. Loved riding that bike, it was totally grin inducing. The other bonus was not having to bother with a lock as who in their right mind is going to steal a brown CD200?
