  4. Guess who needed a jump lead start on Sat from a 15 year old AT?

    Africa Twin
    Oh yes. Deano's new shiney Africa Twin DCT would not start with a flat battery and you cant bump them (I think??) so the jump leads out and my old AT saved the day! :thumb:

    We've all noted how any decent low-mileage @'s that are left out there are fetching bigger and bigger prices in the past couple of years. Well judging by this one on ebay at the moment I would say that it could go for more than the equivalent KTM 950/990 Adventure. eBay - The UK's Online...
