I stopped buying bikes from Dobles, my customer satisfaction was very low, I brought a 125 scooter which had very high tyre pressures, hate to think what would have happened to an inexperienced rider it was dangerous, I phoned them up not wanting to get anyone into trouble but to find out how it could happen. They said the air line is pre-set and does not get changed.
I wont pay administration charges or preparation fees.
Kent Motorcycles are my preferred Honda dealer also Gedge in Hastings have been very good to someone I know.

Buy from Dobles but check everything ! Don't expect customer service but the price will bee right
This is what a major customer was told bu Honda Chiswick (owned by Honda UK) !! Oh and come to us for warentee issues !
This was 10 years ago I see it is still the same !!

Well it got 1100 miles on it I love the responsive engine top end about 50 fuel ridden carefully 140MPG ridden like you stol it :-)) 125/130
Tank is supposed to be 5.5 litre it holds over 6
Speedo is very inaccurate 10% optimistic against sat nav
Seat is rather hard additional memory foam and sheepskin added !
Bike s over geared not as much as the forums say (drop a tooth on the front ) I going to try one up on the back
420 chain is not going to last well will be doing a 428 conversion and that will give a much better choice of sprockets !

to do list include a speedo healer and big bore intake pipes !

Surprised to hear it has a 420 chain on it, even the 100cc bikes here have 428 chains.

Thanks for the update Dave, a bike I've never considered, until now> So now the usual research, youtube, ebay, forums, until I find something that puts me off. Will it fit inside a Fiat Panda?

Well done! Looks a great excursion. The Grom's did just fine on our Ten Country Tour. A mere 1800 miles!
