I do and I've had to resist a strong temptation a few times now Dan, especially when it's an Activa...

Happily, I still get to lay spanners on them from time to time so my desire is sort-of satisfied every now and again :-D

I've been scratching my head all afternoon trying to remember your name and it came to me about three minutes before I read this post!

Yep, certainly no import Civics or Valentine's day involved :rofl2: Generally pretty unimaginitive with usernames, although the retro bike forum one did at least get a little thought as I'm sure @reanimation will know 8-)

It's good you at least get to scratch the itch via spannering on Xantias Jim, don't forget to extensively test-drive them "to make sure they're fixed" of course ;)

I spotted an S reg burgundy Xantia in Midhurst early this morning, and later on (when heading back) I spotted a J reg blue 205 GTi.

A proper 'in the wild' Xantia spot yesterday :-D

Spotted whilst enjoying a sausage bap and coffee in a cafe during an excellent day out with Mick...
