Congrats TR, that's a very nice bike!

But how do they explain this bit? Made is Spain?
Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!

So.....

I got my bike today ;D

After jumping through all the bank's hoops I got it just before 5pm.







Once again (and as has been reported here on WD lots of times) the service from Honda Wing George was absolutely superb!

I took ownership of a polished bike, with a FULL tank and a bottle of Champagne to boot! ;D



I rolled it off the showroom floor myself:



It had 0km. Not 5km, not 1km, ZERO km! ;D



What a feeling!

We had to be somewhere tonight, but I rode it some before and after. It is now sound asleep in my garage with 18km on the clock ;D

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Be careful of the words you say.
And keep them soft and sweet.
For you never know from day to day.
Which ones you'll have to eat.
