Some more utter bollocks...

655 Went to it's new home on Thursday. Up in Northhant's..... Sad to see it go is a understatement, but alas it's paid some of the new 175.... well new to me.

2006, 8000hrs, been overhauled a thousand hours ago with new pins bushes and linebored kingpost. 3 good buckets and brand new tracks with geo pads 13k, I'm happy. She'll run till 12k hours i'm sure. If she makes 500hrs without issue then she's paid for

congrats on the new acquisition Rory .... hope she serves you as well as your first one has

now all you need to do is either clone yourself or grow a second bum to park in the saddle of this one too and the job's a good un


I like the look of the bigger of the two items we were discussing earlier mate

Well done Rory, after our conversation last weekend, I think you’ve made a wise choice

Yes without doubt.

One thing the experience has taught me is HP is not for me, Never say never but I couldn't console myself to sign the agreement and not own the machine really for another two years.

13k of gear is a lot easier to fund through other means than a brand new one.

Congratulations. Looks a great machine. You are bound to have the odd issue to start off with, but having had the work done and looks like it has been looked after you should be fine.

you had a hell of a good deal on the Taki Rory and an even better one on the money front, to fund it.
you'll not regret it for sure
