Always looking at ebay, Bully, you never know when another "must have" will come along.

So I am assuming that based on your desert weapons thread, your next jaunt is going to be on the DR's not the tiger?

You could use this as a bargaining tool to keep the tiger! "we will take the tiger, but..."

I think it's cool that the guys are not out to score freebies, but are doing it for the fun of riding awesome bikes all around. The commercial benefits are there for both, and there is none of that bad taste in the mouth from some other get-a-free-bike-schemers that have gone before.

Besides, Phil's already a household name around at least the Aussie Tiger customer base, so I'm sure he's been looked after plenty.

The question is, how much crap can someone ride thru whilst having one hand holding the video camera. I guess the answer lies on a Motorbikin' DVD..
