    Picking up MT10 on Saturday and my experience in purchasing the bike couldn't have been better. The guy who sold me the bike , Ken, gave me more for my trade in than I imagined and was very accommodating with accessories as well. Very friendly and professional and I would definitely purchase from them again.

    Welcome.

    I picked up my MT-10 exactly one year ago today from Hursts.

    So it's happy birthday, great 9000 miles MT-10; this afternoon.

    Enjoy your big MT.

    ^ I get mid to high thirties running about. The mpg can be lowish for the 1st few 1000 miles. 40 mpg is achievable on long runs. Enjoy tomorrow, thumbs up.

    ^ You're welcome...

    What did you ride before the MT ?
    I hope that you really enjoy owning and riding the Yamaha.

    Cheers.

    ^ That sounds like the MT itself; sounds good. Great magic CP4 cross plane engine takes a bit of getting used to tho.

    I called into Hurst one day after selling my Speed Triple and got a run on the MT10, had been speaking with Ken on the phone prior to my visit but he was off that day and the rest of the week. So I left word for him to ring me at the beginning of the following week! Never heard from him that week at all... I said to the wife ill ring him on Monday and try and do a deal on a new one... Sat evening a low mile MT popped up for sale on Gumtree and it was mine on Sunday lunch time lol! Have been down to get some heated grips and quickshifter fitted, got a great deal, so I've no complaints! Just my 2 cents lol
