Thanks for all the comments guys !

Fixit I have that same pic as my background on my laptop. From what I`m told, the bike I`m getting is the same !

Yes I bought it without seeing it but I believe I have got the buy of the year ! :mwink: Will give details when the bike arrives!

I`m looking forward to many ride reports ! :deal:

Pity the weather has closed in and tomorrows forecast is 15 deg max with rain !  :patch: I do not own a rain suit so I guess I`ll be getting very wet cos there is no ways I`m not going to ride tomorrow !  ::)

So here`s to me and here`s to you all !

Cheers !  :thumleft:

Lekker Glen!!!

Hopefully next week when we are in Elliot, we can join you for a little outride!!!

We will have lots and lots KTSSST on your new boney. I will try and bring some WD stickers from the Free State Bash down to you so that you can decorate her with some paws.
