Welcome to the forum John.

Starting on a TTR at 70 is a trifle late, but better late than never. biggrin

I gave up riding bikes and driving cars at 70 due to MS - that was 2 years ago.

I'm still doddering around on my mobility scooter - even on a few local lanes. smile

Enjoy it while you can.

Martyn

Welcome to the forum John biggrin

I hope you snag that TTR at a good price

It's nice to see the TTR250 being recognised as the classic trail bike that it is wink

Out of interest, what classic bikes are you into? 

Brian
