I'll be 61 in January, have a pacemaker, and there's hardly a joint in my skeleton that doesn't give my gyp.

I've still got, and enjoy, my 950. Providing it's not really cold or raining hard, it's more comfortable than a car.

When i get old, I'll get a Royal Enfield 650...but I'm not old enough yet!

This is nothing to do with me, but if you want a challenge....

I suspect the head bolts weren't retorqued when they should have been....a weak point that was later rectified.
Went for 2450...if you knock off £500 for the extra wheels that establishes a 'bottom' price for a 950 of about £2k.

About £4500 for a good un would therefore seem fair.

It says at the bottom of description that the price will be with original wheels only. Any bike of this size is worth £2.5k minimum. A mate of mine sold his TDM900 a couple of years ago and is now on the lookout for another but can't find a bike as good as his previous one for the same money, they are all 15%+ more expensive.

This bike has nearly 90,000 miles on the clock, and still rocks!

Take a look at the 950 Super Moto, I test ride one many years ago and the grin factor was simply HUGE.
