Excellent choice and now there'll be a spare seat in Canberra so we can all take turns sending one off to get it fixed by Renazco or whoever. Oh and you will get to know the wonderful world of Gecko. Rang to book first service yesterday - can't do it until 27FEB!!

Yes , Rossco......... welcome to the orange side .





V Twin DRF , permanent stiffy . Only need one bike for all occasions, from firetrails to freeways a V Twin does the job with soul . I wouldn't recommend one to just anyone though , you possess the credentials . I bought my SE as a result of that conversation you and I had at the Capital Rally .




Cheers Alan

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

yes it's very exciting.

So, do these things need maintenance?
