so there i was, driving home at about 10am with the ktm on the trailer after a nice muddy session at a local track, look to my left at a pedestrian crossing on a local high st and saw a carpet/bed shop with a big pile of bikes out front, so me being me, i parked up and went and had a look to see if there was anything decent in there. right at the back there was a yellow frame. again me being totally dumb i decided that it would be a realllly good idea to purchase this bike. got home. put the ktm and trailer away. and took it for a spin. got home again. then that moment kicked in. said to myself "i shouldnt of done this". have now justified buying this piece of crap to the gf by saying im going to use it to commute so i dont have to spend money on diesel going to and from work/college.
so here it is :facepalm:
not sure what im doing with it yet, might clean up what chrome is there, change the cables and brake pads and at some point paint it black to hide the yellow :facepalm:

You mug!

It's one thing to buy a p!ss yellow pi,le of doos.
It's another entirely to parade it in polite society.
Have you no shame?
