MASH X Ride 650
« on: December 11, 2020, 02:23:20 AM »
Hello Thumpeteers

Just watched a Youtube video on the MASH X Ride 650 and I am in love. Absolute classic thumper, excellent review (sorry don't know how to post links) and £5199. I want one.

Yes very XT 500 and I think that is why I like it so much.

Speaking as a white haired, fat old man with a large white beard I think I should decide who is on the good list! Hooray that will be me!!!!! Sadly only a dream.

£5100

At the risk of ruining the industry by discouraging new buyers, 5 grand buys a LOT of used thumper m:

-Honda Domi, XBR500, and SRX

- KTM (various) plus Honda Vigor (for reliability)

- nice Goldie copy

- XR400 plus £2-3K for summat comfy

-SR500 all sorted plus MuZ Bagheera

Other options Are possible but I’m very, very, drunk
XBR500,  FT500 (USA reg still but now starts/runs nicely!)
non-thumpers CX500EC, NTV650P

OOOO you tempter you! I don't have £5200 anyway but if I did then I would have to give your list some serious thought. I think I am going to pursue another thumper soon, albeit maybe a 250 as I really miss the single cylinder thing. I think if money were no object I would seek out one of the rare Harris Matchless G80 500s with electric start.

My other all time favourite is the SLR 650 or XBR 500 Honda. I would have to have a 'bar conversion on the XBR though.

Lovely thinking material on a rainy day.
