A dream came through!

Picked up my long awaited dreambike yesterday, a 2008 GS1200 Adventure! It has 35K kilometers on it, so I guess there's plenty of life left in her! Will start full service and maintenance work on it today. It has a full service history, but I like to put everything back to "zero", just in case.
Here she is:
Don't drink and drive, actually, don't drink at all!

Beautiful bike, welcome aboard!

A great machine. I love my GSA. I wish you many years of happy riding. Your dream really has come "through".
