Well, apparently this is an XC/All Mountain bike - it made me die a little inside:

Taking the idea of a relaxed head angle a bit to far for me!
Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.

To be fair, none of the sections apply, and he wants to sell it.....mind you I wouldn't want to admit ever buying THAT!

Now I would have bought that one, only I don't have the tattoos so think I would look a bit stupid riding it

Not sure why having tattoos would stop you looking stupid riding that!

I've said it before, I'd love to have a go but would never buy one.

Err MLC? What's that - my slang is stuck in the groovy era, which that bike would be with some flower power stickers.

I did buy a few motorcycles in my early 40's - unfortunately sometime in the prior decade my balls had vanished and I got really scared, so I bought a small red two seater sports car instead.
But never a Harley, I'm not an idiot. Motorcycles should weigh less than a small locomotive.

But everyone should have an MLC (see you can teach an old dog..). It was fun. I even took style advice from a twenty something.
