Oh dear - I seem to have accidentally bought another EXUP. Does anyone know of a helpline or support group to help me deal with this terrible affliction? Or failing that a bloody good excuse for the wife!

Just got it off ebay thinking I will have another for spares. Its a bit scruffy with a lot of cracks and the like in the faiing, so I have to decide what to do - repair, repaint or whatever. What do people think? Are there many around in this colour scheme?

if you find that support group please let me know. I bought one as spares, spent a couple of quid on it and put it back on the road. It was too good to break down into bits. Thought I'd use it to have a bit of a track day and then if anything happened to it I might not be quite so annoyed with myself.

And me retard I got mine to be sure that I would have all the spares I would ever need for any eventuality that may crop up. It was a none runner but I got it going and rode to nuggitt's a couple of times to see if it ran ok, which it did. I returned it to my garage greased up all the shiny bits and left it there frown

I'm still thinking shall I make a goodun of it and use it, or shall I just leave it as it is and keep it for spares?

The trouble is of course if I do the former I'll have to buy another one for spares big grin and then what?

I get councilling every week to keep me on the straight and narrow to avoid temptation, or I'd have a garage full of them. I hope I can keep it up because it is hard sometimes. Anyway I know where to go if I need any parts. unibrow unibrow

Got two myself, and looking at another I know that's knocking about round near me, it's not for sale yet but I know he's looking for something more modern. I'm in the thick of it and I need help😰.

The trouble is is that alcohol renders the tablets useless. nod

Especially if your computer doesn't have its breathalyzer app enabled.
