My New Bike :) At last - I'm naked!

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Respi, Apr 24, 2008.

  1. I know I’ve contradicted myself with this decision, but after many test rides of my top 3 –Speed Triple, Bruatle & Café Racer I have decided to go with my heart and not my head on this bike purchase. I’ll be picking her up this Sunday after I come back from my trip to Coffs Harbour through to Sydney.

    I’ve always loved the look of this bike and have done as much homework as I could in regards to the controversial history of the manufacturer & its importer. Allot of the problems that people have experienced seemed to surrounding incorrect mapping, something I’ve insisted be checked & re-check pre-delivery.

    I know this will sound strange but if it should decide to get a case of electrical quirkiness, I’m ok with and will still love this bike no matter what, after all it has been my dream bike since it hit the market.

    The great news is, my camera arrived in from the U.S so first thing on my agenda is to strap that sucker to my helmet and gently pluck a few feathers from that back tyre.


    here's a pic (not my bike) of the pipe I'd like to throw on after I save a bit. whether this will happen or not is dependant on how lazy I am and how tight funds are.


    anyways, i'm a happy camper and look forward to seeing some of you sydney folk on the roads.
  2. It looks likes a Transformer shagged a B-King, but I'm not saying that's a bad thing :p

    Top choice.
