  1. So after years of searching for the right bike I picked this up last night.

    I had considered Bonnievilles, Thruxtons, Royal Enfields and loads of older 'cafed' bikes, but I am glad a settles on this! (Also, thanks Netrider for all your suggestions along the way)

  2. Excellent choice
  3. Great looking bike
  4. I've seen a few of these parked around the the inner suburbs of Melbourne, pictures just don't do them justice. Heard one ride past me along Sydney Rd on Sunday, the engine sounds pretty damn good too (not sure if that was the standard exhaust or not).
  5. Im guessing it was an after market exhaust. That the one thing I dont like about it. It sounds like a miniature diesel truck.
  6. What bike is that? Very nice looking.
  7. Its a 2012 Kawasaki W800
