    Old Job Advert

    This appeared in the bike press maybe mid-80s with the slogan (approx) "Score 2 out of 3 and you could be working for us." I can't remember the name of the despatch company. It's been on the wall in my garage for a number of years and makes me smile.

    BrendanO's NTV650P

    Sorry Mark, just spotted your comment mid-Jan! NTV is classic high-end Honda build, but not comfiest seat (got mine refoamed for Germany last year). Tiny battery for size of engine. I put higher bars on, used to get sore shoulders after 90 min, would still like a little higher. Engine accrues speed in a "modern" manner, competent but not exciting. 55mpg urban stop-start, more out of town. Fine 2-up. Heavyish to pick up if dropped <ahem>. Mine was low mileage, dealer serviced annually, until 4 yrs before me when it was all year commuter for previous owner. This does mean a bit of corrosion, and a tendency to snap fasteners occasionally (eg fork leg) when dismantling; that was a PITA. Then again, I paid £530 in 2011 for a 26k bike. I've replaced reg/rect unit, silencer (downpipes I think last forever), done forks, new clutch at 50k. 2-3 batteries. Tappets and plugs a bit of a bugger to get to.

    How do you find the NTV? Theres a cheap one I was considering as change from the CG as my commute may be getting longer soon.

    BrendanO's XBR500

    Never ridden one of these but always fancied the idea. So your dad was into bikes as well ? That explains a lot !!

    BrendanO's NTV650P

    Brendan, I don't know if you were aware of this but there's a dead pheasant hanging from the back of your bike.

    Aberdeenshire in November

    Nov 2018. Borrowed Lawrie's ZAB while staying at his house - stunning day, beautiful autumnal colours, quite mild, and roadside snow if you look hard.

    Marty, you do know that Highlands And Islands is only one area of Scotland? (cue massive debate on correct current and past name for every region/county/administrative area/borough/local council and what went wrong with boundary changes. And the Beeching Axe)
