Bought the bike directly from the old owner, no market or middle man required.

It hasn’t gone too many kilometres, but I can’t remember the exact figure off the top of my head, anyway, what this did was pretty much halve the price from new if I was to include all the paperwork and registration which now came included in the price.

What I did, though, was bring a Chinese petrolhead friend along with me and have him do the negotiations as well. That’s a good way to make sure the seller doesn’t try to shaft you as a gullible laowai, and that you don’t automatically presume that this is going to be the case.

Hehe, thanks. Am I guessing right that we have another Pratchett fan here?
