Hello!
Extremely reliable overland bike, bought from David Lambeth, one of the UK's leading rally and overland experts. 20+ L Acerbis tank, electric start, super comfy FDL seat, stainless steel spokes, no crash damage. A very tough and capable machine. Sale due to needing bigger 2-up bike.

Many thanks.
DBG

Hi, how much for the bike? I also have a BMW F650 '97 for sale if you'd think that might be a big enough for two up. (it's too big for me).

Yamaha TT

Hi
It's for sale at £1995 ONO. If it's not too personal, how tall are you?! The seat is quite high at the moment, but could be modified. At 5'8" you can get your toes down, but I suspect it's a bit lighter than your current BMW.
You can always come round and have a look at it - we're based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

Best

I'm 5'8" and I like to get more of my foot on the ground than my toes. I've had a closer look at the spec, and at some in the shops and it does seem very tall so I might leave it. Looks liek you have some other interest though. Good luck with the sale and getting the larger bike.

Question still interested but not for much longer

hi
have asked you twice for info but nothing so far. if you still are selling the bike please get in touch if not it would be helpful to remove it from the HUBB to save wasting anyones time.
cheers

Javier told me...

Hi Oz,
I was msn-ing with Javier over in B'a A's the other day and he told me you're looking for a TT600 in kent. Well in true blighty fashion I though "yeh right'o..." but anyway, I was in Metropolis m/c over on the Albert embankment london (ok so it's not kent but it's closer than B's A's!) today when hey presto...I saw a TT600 in blue...you know the new ones. They were getting a bit arsy with me 'coz they were closing so I didn't get a chance to check it out too much but it's going for £3100. it can only be a few month old...anyway, there you have it.
I'm going to B's A's on monday so if you'd like to send something to Javier and Sandra let me know via email. zade.alassad2@ukonline.co.uk
Cheers...zade

Just to say that the bike is still around and I have dropped the price to £1900 ono. Oz, sorry I didn't reply sooner but the auto email notification didn't seem to work.

regards

DBG
