Keep Trusty !!!

Bikes mess up your hair with the helmet..

You can only be garantee a sunny day or dry if i'm around lol

Bikes good fun when its sunny but just count
how many sunny day the UK has.

Bike & Car then you can choose depending on the weather.

Make enquirys on how much your insurance will be as i think your in for a shock.

hope this helps ?

Alright mate, you probably remember my bike as i met some of you for the first time on it - preston cruise. Honestly mate, seeing all the sweet cars made me swap my bike for a car. The power of the bike made me laugh my **** off but cruising about in a sweet motor turning heads is much better. You've prob well made your mind up by now, but jus some advice for any one else considering a swap! Wot would you do without the sound system too - i missed my tunes like crazy
! wish i could afford both!

2 wheels best on bike, but **** on car, it either leans to one side, front hits floor or **** hits floor, best stick 2 four on the car mate.

Keep the car ,i've got both and the bike costs a lot more to run .Insurance is mad for bikes. tyres will cost 200-250 a pair and you will only get 3000 miles from a set (if you ride hard)
try priceing some service parts pads, chain ect

Sell the car and get something cheap like a Nova SR or AX GT or Fiesta or civic and get the bike as well.
