Excellent choice! Very Nice Bike  :thumleft:
There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it I have now surpassed. P.B

Light cannot exist without darkness. Each has it purpose. And if there's a purpose to my darkness, maybe it's to bring some balance to the world. Dexter

Super first adventure bike enjoy  :thumleft:
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

Thanks for all the comments and well wishes guys.

A week in and I am smiling from ear to ear.

Commuting daily is a whole new challenge and I need to get my confidence up in the traffic, so for now I ride when  get home and have planned a trip to V-town on Sunday.
Bike is super responsive and an absolute dream to ride. I can see many many miles ahead on her.

Looking forward to finally being able to join some of you okes on a ride as well at some point
