    Yup, decided I wanted the choice of a big bike or a toad.. Toad will be doing the grand tour in August and September, and a bike when we go back to Spain next January..

    So what have I bought ? A Secma !!! One of the older, smaller Qpod types ..
    Off to collect it from a MHomer in darkest Sussex on Wednesday

    Chaps name is Matt and the poor lad has been visiting a.n.other MHF site :Doh:

    Put him right and hopefully he will be along to join in the fun soon !

    Hiya, I had one a couple of years ago. You may already be aware but the local agent was/is Cunninghams garage of Hempnall, handy for spares

    Yup, been looking after one for a while now ( though virtually nothing has ever gone phut on it :thumb: )

    I am having trouble finding insurance though ...

    I mean, I have a couple of Honda Blackbirds, a 1200 GS, and a Yam enduro spec WR250.. Fully comp all three set me back a total of £133.00

    Now this thing.. 300cc, 48 MPH flat chat on a good day, unlikely to do more than about 3 oo miles a year,,,, they best quote so far is £350 and a few p !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Just how bloody nuts is that

    Footman James had two stabs at it..
    Foned in the morning and what I can best describe as an uninterested wanna be hoodie wearier with pretensions of being a gangster rapper ( this was the impression given ) gave me a really stupid quote..
    Found Des and Donna use them and at a good price,.. Phoned back this afternoon.. Spoke to a really pleasant and helpful young lady gave me a quote of £90.00

    Sold !!!

    Got to ring them tomorrow with the reference number and the reg number
    She even gave me a geographical fone number so I did not have to use that ruddy 0845 number ..

    Soooo.. Might just plot up at Newark with the toy on the back !

    Update !

    Update on the Pod :Eeek:

    Had a deal with Des ( of Des 'n Donut ) and for a small sum did a swap..

    des now owns 'Poddy' as Maureen calls ( called ) it, and we now own 'Tango' ( for obvious reasons :Rofl1: )
