Hi, mid life faddist here but I really need an mt350 in my life. I had a quick go at the Honda adventure centre on an Africa twin, loved it but not confident enough to risk my own!
So, if anyone has one to sell - or just let me look at and drool over!

Yes you're right the Africa twin is fearsome money now, couldn't afford one at the current price!
Will check out Facebook for the one for sale, many thanks

The important thing is that you know what SHOULD and what should not be there. Newbies have been caught out before with MTs fitted with obsolete carbs and missing mainstand or pannier frames and boxes

It's tricky to buy with your head rather than your heart when it's your first MT 😊 Topical, but check that the frame number is there stamped into the metal.

Good luck

I bought one! Really pleased with it, got back late last night after s long drive from d and c classics. I'll put some pictures up when I can work out how to do it!
Got to find my local group now, can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm beds/ Cambs border. Also might try the trf as I do want to do some green laning, and am a complete novice!

Hi Wilf, pleased to hear you have got hold of an MT350.

I'm at the opposite side of Bedfordshire, on the Bucks border. We don't really have local groups as such , but there informal gatherings of members for rides on and off the roads. Have a look at the Meets/rideouts/what's on section to see what's planned for this year.

If you are looking for some off-roading, I use to go to the area west of the A5, between Towcester and Weedon. The Hertfordshire TRF are an active group if you want to head south.

I've stopped off-roading, getting to hard to recover from the bangs and bumps, so stick to tarmac roads.
