Re: Scomadi.

No you're "bob on" Terror, the 200 motor is an Aprilia unit... suspect that still won't be good enough for some though ;)

Whilst informative, this report is based on one of the early handbuilt 250's which used the carb fed 250cc out of the GTS at the time and are unavailable now.

Re: Scomadi.

Sticky's appraisal of the 200 herewith too... http://www.scooterlab.uk/scomadi-tl200-sunday-sluk-test-review/ I think the SULK articles are probably the nearest you'll get to a professional unbiased opinion as opposed to "my mates mate know someone that..." and others that have NO riding experience ...

Re: Ducati 600's.

I ran a 08 Monster 696 for a couple of years and used it for a 50mile commute down fast A roads.
Fast enough to get you into trouble and a great sound track too.

Re: mick abbey out of business

As a business owner, I recognise posts like this are very dangerous and would urge people to avoid speculation as it can be very damaging to someones livelihood.
I have never used Mick but seen his work and his informative posts and hope his business is still thriving.
