Some of you may recall that back in September I had an accident to avoid a larger one. Unfortunately the smaller accident was still severe enough to write off my much loved, if troubled Honda CB500X. I almost straight away borrowed a Ninja 300 and rode off to Melbourne for the MotoGP... Then had to tow thing home thanks to a series of electrical failures, including the main loom!! But I wasn't put off by any of this. Once all the insurance was finally sorted out*, it was time to go shopping again. I was pretty sure what I'd be getting though, in the back of my head I kept thinking about it. A bike I probably didn't give enough of a chance when I was first shopping for bike all those months ago, so I went and had a look, had a ride, and put a deposit on it. Two weeks ago I picked up the keys, and yesterday I rolled over to 1300km. Thrilled with my purchase, and fcuking stoked to be back on my own bike. *Somehow the insurance still isn't sorted, but you know, baby steps.
