Nice looking bike, though the exhaust needs changing ASAP as that standard one is hideous

And i'm guessing you don't need much more than a 300 living on such a small island Laughing

I worked on Guernsey (Synpac Pharamceuticals, no longer around Crying or Very sad ) in the fabulous summer of 1995. I wasn't into motorcycles back then but I arrived with a VW Scirocco and a drop-handle bicycle. I was surprised at how many fast motorcycles there were, but the roads were good, the Continent was close and there was also beach racing and a hill climb. Sometimes I think I should have stayed.

Laughing There are still tons of Motorcycles on Guernsey, a lot of Scooters too since 14 year olds can still get a 50 twist & go.

So many people buy high powered bikes on this island, I don't see the point, I hear you can take corners at higherspeed on lighter bikes and I have no plan to visit the mainland yet on it!

I've never heard of that Company, I don't know what it was like in 1995 but about 70% of the jobs are in Finance.

I'm sure it'll do very nicely where you are. I just don't know why the hell Honda didn't stick this engine in the CRF 250 SM though? Same as why don't Kawasaki stick the Ninja 300 lump in a KXF 250?

70% of your jobs are in financial services you say? That's why I'm never going to live on Guernsey then.

Isn't it. Looks like something you could just unclip at the end of a ride, and slip straight onto your club foot.

They are a nippy bike, get ready for the rattle at 5000 rpm, should appear after the first service, it will show itself when just holding revs.
Appeared on the 250 version then the 300, luckily my crank sh*t itself due to the build fault and it was changed for a 500F, other than that it was a great little bike.
