Well I spent most of Friday night awake, too excited to sleep as I was picking the Spada up on Saturday morning . Finally got out, exchanged cash and details then had to wait a frustrating 25 minutes on hold to the insurance company to get a cover note :x . I finally got through did all the usual crap like rego and vin numbers and then I was off. It was awesome. Doesn't feel like I have been off the road for over 3 years. Ride home went without incident untill about 500m from home (picked the bike up about 40-50km away). Some idiot pulls out of a side street straight infront of me. I get on both brakes. Front wheel locks. Note to self - front brake is a little touchy! Somehow manage to find the horn too. Idiot gives me the finger as bike starts to slide out. Get off the front brake and somehow manage to gain control and not drop the Spada. I pull over to calm down a little. Get home in one piece. Immediately adjust the controls to suit myself. Front brake not so touchy now . Apart from that one incident its been great back out on the road. Nearly clocked up 300km on Saturday and Sunday. Bloody raining today so I had to catch the train again :x . oh well there is always tomorrow.
