Isn't getting a new bike just great? Lots of lights up front on there Congratulations - I did a bit of small scale retail therapy last week while waiting for my collar bone to heal, so jealous of anyone who can get out there at the moment!

cheers

Go shiney new stuff!

I dropped a deposit on this bad boy on Saturday and picking it up end of the month




I originally put a deposit on this, buuuuut...(pic is nicked off google)



When I went to pick it up it had no fuel so the dealer offered to go fill it up. "Course mate go for it", who honestly will knock back free fuel. After 10 or so minutes I was scratching my head wondering where my bike got too so I decided to wander out to the road to see what the fuss was about, and there he was manhandling it on the path.

When he rode up to me he told me the story, the poor bloke had run into the back of a car when it pulled in front of him and dropped it on the road A dealers worst nightmare!

So I ended up taking out the Tiger and felt right at home on it, cancelled the order on the beemer. nuff said

Yup, a 1958 Dnepr. the seat is terrible on this bike or maybe my ass is just too big?
