    If no one did it on a motorbike I'm looking at it would probably have saved people about £200 at the moment.

    Had to wait to see how much money I had after my holiday....been watching it for three months.:blush:

    Always worth saving up and stopping the booze.

    I'm sort of starting to regret posting that now (don't type when drunk etc..), but the fundamental fact is you don't know how things would have panned out, had you sniped - or not. I've put max bids in on what I've thought are popular items (don't forget that your max doesn't show until someone puts in a higher max), half expecting to lose the item, but then have been surprised when nobody else has bid, and have picked up some ludicrous bargains. Maybe I've been lucky, but I tend to look on eBay as an occasional thrill than a serious way to buy stuff. Although, I must admit that there's no apparent disadvantage to sniping - I've just been too lazy to try it.

    That happened to me...I could see it going tits up last night with forty minutes to go but when I threw my hat in the ring so to speak nobody else bidded.
