So I've had a huge weekend of bike related buying. First off I bought my first set of gear. Shark RSI Helmet - $299- http://www.bikebiz.com.au/enter.html?lmd=39534.728657 RJays Evo Jacket - $299- http://www.rjays.com.au/home/products/textile-evo-2-jacket.html Rjays Explorer 2 Pants - $199- http://www.rjays.com.au/home/products/textile-explorer-2-pants.html Fusport Sports Boots - $189- <need to find a link> C&R Tarmac Gloves - $59- <need to find a link> TOTAL PACKAGE = $1049- I was pretty happy with the gear. Good quality, lots of in-built padding, all season with zip out liners, waterproof, confortable, etc. Next I went to look at a bike I'd had an eye on for a bit. I've been looking around at Suzuki GS500's for a number of weeks, and found this one while enquiring about another. So I went down to check it out. I ended up taking ot for a test ride, and then shaking on it subject to finance. I'd planned for the prospect of buying it, but I still can't believe this will be my bike!!! http://www.tradingpost.com.au/Autom...Bikes/AdNumber=W75611601090?BackToResult=true 6k km on the clock, just had it's 2nd service, 12 months reg and also 12 months factory warranty. The bike was in great condition and rode very smoothly. I knocked them down a bit to $6700- ride away, and I feel like I got a pretty good deal. All in all it's been a huge weekend. I can't wait to get my bike next Saturday.
