Well this is one of those lovely tales where I have had my bike licence for many years but the wife has always hated bikes. I got the licence then the wife. Times changed and we needed to get a second form of transport and she suggested a bike just once and so off I went to get some refresher courses and out on the hunt for a bike. The final result was a 1999 Kawasaki Balius. Well that was about 3 months ago now and still riding with almost no drops.
