    Money pit

    This i my second CT and I have to say this one is proving significantly more expensive to run than my first.
    I've only been riding it since end of March, im halfway through my second set of tyres, I'm forever having to fill it up, and now I've just had to fork out another 50 quid to up my mileage allowance on my insurance.

    All you people that sung the praises of the DCT when I was considering changing never warned me about the additional expense did you. :038:


    As for my pcp agreement...,, :005:

    I used to get 45-50 mpg from mine so Paul you must be 'a born again racer'  :008: :037: Off track, but have happy retirement Dave.

    You should worry Paul. Now on my second DCT, I thought that the kids leaving home would lighten the financial burden of running a DCT, but it looks as though I'll have to sell my 2 up 2 down to live in a caravan next door to release more funds, plus carry on working until I'm 60 like Dave !  :005:

    Yours is cheap to run Rob, you leave Bertie in D and never ride it properly. :164:

    As for Dave, he'll be to busy in the queue in the Post Office to ride his.  :038:

    Seriously tho, happy retirement Dave, enjoy what you've worked for. :152:
