My failing was 2 stroke 250cc bikes after learners were stopped from riding them and they became a cheap entry to racing. Apart from that there are a few others I owned more than one example of and loads where I'd buy one again if the opportunity arose.

I only thought it was a bit odd from a financial point of view. The bikes haven't changed at all - aside from the colour.

I had a 660z before my S10 and I am also considering getting another 660z but I have had my S10 for 6 years and it has done a lot of work.

Like I said, it was not a criticism. Each to his own. If that's what you want to do then fill your boots.

I don't usually show any model loyalty, the exceptions being that I owned 2 Norton Commandos at the same time and I bought 2 consecutive Kawasaki 550GTs but the Kwakas were work tools when I was dispatching and it was a question of the devil you know.
