    Been looking around for a 2 stroke for a while now (not seriously, just keeping an eye on bikesales, gumtree, etc) A Suzuki RGV 250 in modern livery turned up a few weeks ago at a reasonable price so I snapped it up. Unregistered at the moment , will put it on red plates 20191008_133708.jpg 20191008_133718.jpg 20191008_133656.jpg

    I think I've made Greta Thunberg cry :(:(

    Hey, my first road registered bike too but a earlier model. No fancy disc on the front.
    Mine was this model and colour scheme. I used to ride it to school in year 12.

    You’re a funny man Dave.
    It was a long time ago though the speedo was in mph.
    Not sure about scaring the horses but it scared me a couple of times.
