  7. Come on jackpot lottery. They would look good in the shed. Watch everyone's face when you turn up on one on a track day. Yee hah... beats buying a yacht or whatever else yuppies buy with no clue.

  8. I've gotten to the limit on roundabouts on my 125cc and I think it's time I get a real bike for the track. You guys think I would outgrow one of these too quickly?

  16. It's so the government don't keep a track of every single move you make... Not unless you like them watching your money so they get their scabby little hands all over it!

  17. This is why a lot of the little takeaway shops don't take credit/debit cards. It's not because they care about the transaction fees, it's because they're dodging taxes.

  18. Anyway it turns out the titular bikes are NON-OPERATIONAL :( They've sealed the engines and shit, so they're purely ornamental. Booooorrrrriiiiinnnng.

  19. Doesn't have a great deal to do with taxes. BTW, you think you have money in the bank? I went to get iirc 10k out of 'my' bank account and got laughed at. Was told I should call before withdrawing large sums of money as they may not have it! GTFO!

    Anyway bikes would make good lounge room pieces.

  20. You really think they were going to be in fine working order? Even IF they were, it would only be for an hour or so before the engine needed a tuneup and then replacement after 5 hours riding.
