So thought i would do an update.Will be as diplomatic as I can but not happy..Partly i assume people know what their doing and also liked to give someone a go.But didnt really work as expected.Wasted so much of my holiday time sorting shit for this bike.From turning up to a very unprofessinal looking workshop .Lacking in tools and equipment needed to build a adv bike.Spent all night building half arsed racks that to be honesyt would throw in bin end of trip.This is what you do when spent years saving and paid Fxxkin 5000£ for.Understand overseas we are prepared to pay more for turn up n ride on a buy back .No usb wired in or gps ...that took 4 hrs !!!!No parts etc .Dont wish to go on but suffice to say cant recommend at all.Nothing personal.,great bloke and rider but as a businees not viable .Dont wont to get into negative and will put it down to experience as just want to get on with holiday

So to Finalise this post.Hard for me to do because went with high Expectations etc .Belief in World wide Brother Hood etc.Totally Scammed seem,s from my End anyway.So got there after 28 hr flight and couple days in London.Up too pick up bike.Nowhere near Ready.Had to make my own pannier Racks for fucksa Sake.Then Cheeky prick even charged me more .So anyway just want to get on the road .First Person,Bike Mech, to see/ hear Bike says "your Clutch is Fucked.,How far you think your going " Wise words that I was reminded of 6 weeks later.So being WR 450 kept oil changes up to it .Bit like my xr600 that ive done 15000km on .And Better bike.3000miles later after doing lot of TET Balkans etc gearbox blows up in Italy.Due to paper work etc sold bike so could leave country.In process did find out that speedo had been changed .I was never told. Apparently you can get all or some of money back.So contacted Brian to try and get address of Last owner assuming would be helped and get some compensation. Would never give up old owners address .Consumer Affairs could do nothing.This is not about what bike I was using etc .This is about being sold a bike that was Fucked from Day one . Poorly Prepared . Also if you ever buy a bike off Simon Viet Wilson or Brian Eland .Be real Careful .Real Careful.There is Lot more to this story and Definitely not in The Spirit of TET as I had Hoped.Peace Out

Sorry to hear about this .
In Europe it is not so common to buy -ride -and resell a bike or car after the intended use .
despite this , you were certainly not too lucky with that bike .
the final decision is always yours in accepting a bike that ,from what i learn was not up to your expectation and neither up to standard for the work it was intended .
