ALSO CATCHING MY EYE THIS WEEK
1990 Yamaha XT600 Ténéré, £1000
Seller says 26,000 miles, owned for five years, new brakes, nearly new tyres, 12v power take-off. Neil says Low mileage, I’d buy this if I didn’t have a modern 660 Ten.
1986 Yamaha 600 Ténéré, £1000
Seller says 8500km, small oil leak, good tyres, dents and scratches. Neil says I’d pass on this. It doesn’t look particularly good value and it’s kickstart-only.
1999 BMW Funduro 650, £990
Seller says 30,000 miles, topbox, panniers, high screen, hand guards, heated grips. Neil says This would be the sensible choice – a damn good all-rounder.
