Very happy with the bike, although I do need to install the GPS on it, so I can work out where i'm going.

Got the '12 Sertao. Got a good deal on it with OEM rebate, plus picking up last years model.

Now I need to dodge work so I can use it - looks sunny right now.
And then the long road of adding farkles!

Hope to see some of you on the road

Haha - fair enough.

Here's day 3 of ownership:


Down in the Pine Barrens, NJ.

Since then there's been a whole lotta farkling - which I talk about in the Sertao thread on the board.

Impressed if you did a lot of sand with those tires.

Well...i fell a lot while doing it

Since then I've put the TKCs on it, and did a whole lot better in the sand.
