Most expensive ever was K1 NGS which went £246 000 or something IIRC.

Best I've ever seen though was in Warwick around crimbo time - EL V1S

How bloody cool?!

I know that is the record so far - I've seen it around Hertfordshire on a fairly low end Mercedes!

:shock: OH MY some people have got more money than sense. To waste that sort of money on a number plate. You could buy a house for that or a 2 bed flat. Have a round the world holiday 1st class and more. At least this makes those of us who spend money on bikes look very normal :lol: Think of what bikes you could buy for that?
Brent Trimble may even sell me a 2007 frame. :lol:

Look at it this way:

Whoever buys it will probably do so through a company, in which case I'd imagine it'll be tax-deductable, and may even qualify for depreciation allowances (note: I'm not a tax lawyer)

It's still a fraction of the money most FTSE 1000 CEO's get in terms of total compensation and various ego massaging perks

And at the end of the day someone else will probably pay more for it if they ever come to sell it.

Now, where's S1 MON when I want i?
