After a long spell of being bike less, I mustered up the courage to throw a leg over a bigger bike. In 18months of searching, the field had narrowed to only but a few. So with Diego (Jake) and Sunshine Boy (Mark) as the faithful bike fashionistas we headed out for a day of serious shopping. The step was taken the test ride done and my heart was set on the shape of a Ducati M695. Metro Honda in Ringwood had just that bike, 2,500ks on the clock, first registered in Feb 2008 and in just the right colour â€“ black with red frame (red makes it go faster!). A short test ride by me, Jake and Mark giving it the thumbs up and there were smiles upon the faces of all. I shook the piggy bank and shake it hard I did. I knew to have this bike each penny would be spent and then some. So after 1 week of negotiating, the deal was done and I became the proud owner of the Ducati. Ofcourse the preload has been perfectectly adjusted to suit my personal lil frame and allow both feet on the ground :grin: So BIG thank you to my â€œbike pimpsâ€ Jake, Mark for taking the time to look at bikes and take me out as a pillion on the Apriliaâ€™s. Big thanks to Scumbag for ensuring the bike was to his satisfaction. THANK YOU to Metro Honda Ringwood, Thank you! Glenn, John & John! Iâ€™m a very happy girl - THANK YOU! Iâ€™ll be back again for the accessories and have every faith in you being the best dealership who actually want to sell you the right bike â€“ not just any bike! So Netriders when youâ€™re looking for your next bike and/or accessories, I highly recommend Metro Honda Ringwood for anything you need. Go and see Glenn, Brian and John (both Johnâ€™s) they really are the best in business. See you out there on a ride sometime. Ciao ciao Dimitra V5 :biker: Honorary member of Virago country!
