  1. I think I saw the third one at the bike expo this year. Gawd it was horrendous!
  2. Hey John.G - are you in Melbourne?

    There's a guy on a Capo I see some mornings on the Monash, just wondering if it's you. :)
  3. Nope...Wagga Wagga NSW...
  4. Gotta say I like the look of the Capo. It's surprising you don't see more of them, really.
  5. YUUP...surprising really...afterall,its has a detuned RSV motor...you cant kill it....and handles as good as any dual trailie or naked roadie...Absolute shit-hot fun in the twisties,once set up right...front fork springs are way too soft.I fitted five 3mm flat washers into the top of each fork leg & have the rear shock set on the standard two-up (Book) setting...which suits my 195cm/105kg frame just fine...under hard braking the front brake doesnt stop like a road bike,but could be just the tyres...panniers are plenty big enough & easy to take off/on...theres still a few about in Dealers,new or low klms like mine and cheap as...Enjoy :grin:
  6. Apologies...that link went down...
