At last... I bought another bike! Let the bling begin!

After what felt like an eternity of indecisiveness I decided on a 2nd bike. ;D

And I had the honour of opening the box myself!

Nice, TR.  Are we going to see some ride reports now? 

Love the colour, by the way.  ;)

Cool!

I'm curious. Did they drop the box off in your back yard and you assembled it yourself?
Probably not hey? (dealer's back yard?)

I would love it if a dealer dropped the boxed bike off at my home...like a big present

Met 'n strik en als ;D Would be nice.

Dealer's back yard. They got a whole shipment of bikes in. Among those were 3 TA's, 1 Vara and 4 x CTX200's. All sold already.

These 700 TA's really go quickly. I think Honda George sold 35 in 3 months.
