    I was flipping through ebay after seeing platys moment of madness and
    checked on his R80RT (ebay no: : 4621404789) that he'd sold. For me,
    one of the questions stood out.

    "Q: Would you be interested in a swap for my Kawasaki KZ1000-P American
    police bike with MOT?"

    Well, I had one [1] of these for about 6 months before I left the UK.
    Shortly after I sold it on, it was half-inched (I knew this, as the new
    owners InsCo called me about it).

    Granted, it could have been found and returned to the previous owner,
    but is this likely? After all, how many other Merkin Z-thou plod bikes
    are there likely to be in the UK?

    BTW, Platy, do you have the contact details of the person that asked
    you the Q? I'm interested in seeing if the bike is still up for an
    offer (if it's all above board, that is).

    [1] I really liked this, as it was really comfortable on long distance
    runs.

    I think there's quite a few, actually.
    I'll dig it out and email you.

    I know I probably couldn't have had the only one, but I'd be interested
    to see how many there are running around the UK.

  4. Quite a few. My mate Chris had one[1]. he converted it to dual seat, but
    kept the panniers, screen, lights etc and like you, used it as a budget
    tourer.

    [1] From Providence, Rhode Island, according to the police sticker.
