Pete The Freak is back on the road!!!

  1. Good news everybody, after three months of sitting on my arse wishing I still had a bike, I finally went and got me a bike.

    It's a 1985 Yamaha SRX-250, single cylinder, 4 stroke. The best bit, it's painted with the classic Kawasaki Green :eek: . Apparently the guy who sold it to me was respraying his ZX9R and thought he might as well do the little SRX at the same time!! :LOL: :LOL:

    I decided on the SRX for a number of reasons, but the main one was the price. Only $1400 with 6 months rego. Not bad eh?

    Can I recommend to everyone that doing internet banking transfers when buying bikes is very cool 8) . No need to carry cash, no coming back with a bank cheque, just a quick "Do you mind if I use your internet connection? I'll transfer the money straight into your account..." Smooth as a slick!

    Oh, her name is Jen (Plate is JEN-02), and here she is:


    Hope to see you all on the black stuff real soon... :D
