What's the contraption you're towing it with? Some form of A frame that ties on to the underside?

It's an A-frame.  The arms butt up against the front wishbones with a chain wrapping around them going back towards the A-frame which is ratcheted into place. Only available to dodgy bastards.

Yes, another top quality vehicle purchased.

Honda vision 80cc, I think we should race it against the Yamaha v80.

Front carry basket is such a good idea on a bike. So much easier to see if you’re shits fallen off. Amount of time I’ve spent reaching/looking back to check a admittedly badly secured load.

I had one of those.  It wasn't fast - I'm not surprised the V80 left it for dead.  It'd barely do 40.

I had the 125 version later - that'd just about scrape 50 but the acceleration was a lot better.

After Sunday's shite in the park we went to see a BX I'd enquired about over the weekend. I didn't end up buying it but Ged did and I drove it back to the unit.

It seems to go well enough although I was scared to drive it too hard as it had been off the road for a while and fuel gauge was either at zero or inoperative.

It goes up and down fine too.

It's had a wee bump on the rear corner but damage looks superficial.
