Another new C90 owner...?

Post by GongTong » Tue Oct 31, 2023 11:11 pm

Hi all. Just signed up recently having been considering taking the plunge and joining this little cult of yours.

It's taken me 38 years to finally consider my first internal combustion engine, just as they seem to be going out of fashion. Always liked the Cubs. Got my eye on a 1994 C90 going for Β£1500.

I've read the buyers guide on here. But any extra tips will be welcome.

Hope to see some of you on the road very soon!

:shock: Are we a cult?

Like Waco but without the God, Guns and Government? :lol:

Yeah it's more a loose knit collective but being a part of it is generally ace.

Good luck in your quest. there's a C90 (or two) out there with your name on it!

I'm sure I heard us described as a bunch of cults on one of the Matlock runs this year.
We got there first, just before a group of Harleys. :D

The same comments came when wightegi organised for us to park up in the forecourt of the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum, but from the Vincent/TR1 owners club.

They claimed we'd nicked their slot, but the reality was that they'd taken 3 hours to get 30 miles there from Rownham Services and missed their slot by 2 hours! :lol:

Mr Bogger told a group of surfers camping on the Isle of Wight that we were called, "C90 w*****s!"

To be fair, it was a bit of an "inbetweeners," theme that weekend, including BCP and he encouraging a group of elderly ladies on the Red Funnel ferry to shout abuse at jetskiers buzzing the boat. :lol:
