The search began, the debate of DCT vs Manual had to be part of the early stage.

So while searching through this forum, an advert of gumtree popped up. It was a sweet deal not to be missed.

Now my agent in the Uk tells me he only buys bicycles from gumtree and not a motorcycle. I see the name of the seller, belongs to a motorcycle garage in London. So I check em up on Facebook and they got lots of excellent reviews. And the AT is 400£ less than the price on gumtree.

I start negotiations on the Facebook price but the guy says thats the cheapest AT on the market. He was right, but said he will throw a set of extra tyres, service the bike.

The gentleman realised front brake pad needed replacement and did it for me at o extra cost.

Bikeis loaded to a container for sea shipped to Kenya.

It took 2 weeks to get a booking for the container, finally its collected for shipping. Unfortunately due to international shipping delays, we got 2 more weeks delay before it ended up on the sea.

From negotiation that started on 25th August to 26th November when I received the bike.
Thats the photo during collection. I got a call at 3:35 pm to go and collect the bike. I had to drive for 3 good hours, park the car, get a friend to drop me on his moped.

Now the bike has been cleared but has not been officially registered so it shouldnt be on the road. You'll be surprised how far I went :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Well, when your friend rides you two-up for THIRTY MILES(!), you better ride that bad boy home!
