How far is it from your place, probably a good idea to pay a visit
over the weekend and kick the tyres before offering more cash.
Nice weather for a bimble anyway.
I just get a feeling that something is not quite kosher but ICBW.

I've always assumed some leeway on intervals. For example, the first
service on my R36 was due at 30000km, but it was actually around 35000
by the time I'd got it booked in. But I'd still call that a full
service history.

It does look nice, I agree, but somehow the original XT500 still looks
much better, IMO.

If I was ever gonna be tempted back onto powered 2 wheelers, it'd be
on one of them, I reckon.

Maybe the first picture was of the bike in the dealers when the seller
bought it?
