When are you going to get rid of all that lot and buy one, single, decent bike?

Is this the first step?

Yes, I spotted on the list that he shamefully even owns a Zaskar.

So, for the sake of clarity let me re-phrase:


When are you going to get rid of all that lot [including a ceremonial burning of the Zaskar] and buy one, single, decent bike?
