    Might be selling up!??!

    Did undecided at the moment. Love the rsvr to bits. its cracking bike it really is.
    I ride all year round and every winter the bike gets a kicking from the salt and cold! come spring the bike looks crap and I have to spend my money on replacing routine stuff and cant afford the nice bits again.

    im thinking I might sell up and get either car for work or anothe bike that im not to bothered about then get another rsvr next year.

    Anyways, if I do sell up, what do you guys think a good price would be or my 01 rsvr mille

    7 months mot, 6 month tax, good tyres. will need new chain sprokets 18k just on the clocks, history, datatagged. mainly standard.

    any ball park figures would be good. Like I said im not sure yet.

    Judging by some of the prices on Pistonheads and Gumtree you should be looking for around £3500 mate.

    I reckon that you could easily get £3K.

    But don't do it, you'll always wish you hadn't if you do sell up.

    Don`t do it matey, keep hold of the Mille !

    Might sound daft, but how about keeping the beast and getting hold of maybe a scooter for work, or an old car ? You`d be surprised what £500 can bring you these days.

    Then just do the same with the old car........stick it away for the summer, and use the Mille.............win/win situation !

    The thing with bikes mate, is that they`re in your blood, and they`re NOT just transport, like anything with wheels would be for most people, and if your Mille is worth 3.5k (ish), you`ll only have to fork out the same money again when you come to buy another Mille............which I can guarantee you`ll want to at the first sign of a dry road and a break in the clouds come next spring.

    Keep the Mille mate.................you know it makes sense !

    Aus .................................. you've obviously not been to the UK then

    Keep it Garvey and get an old stinker commuter bike - old bandit or summat will probably run you 500-1k notes mate.

    I use a Honda CG EVERY day for work(40miles a day) and the week petrol bill is usually around £11 - £13 depending on how windy it is! Mind you, i got some VERY funny looks from dealers when they asked what bike i already have when buying a CG and they got RSVR as an answer!!!

    Yeah Might have a look about for a a rev and go 250 scooter. A cheap bangers not the option as I havent had my own insurance on a car for a good couple of years and the cheapest I can get on a 850cc car was 250 quid! I only pay 76 on the bike

    Garv don't do it mate - get a little trailiie for commuting and fun on the ranges - it'll make the Mille seem even more awesome when you take it out at weekends

    Yeah, I used to have a C90 back in the days when I had a Norton Commando - needed the C90 because something was always broken on the Commando and a bike was my only transport!
    Some things don't change - I guess that's why I've now got 2 RSV's

    C90 Wheelie technique - perch on back of seat, max revs then slam foot on rocker pedal, yeah, I remember.
