I left home at 6:15am yesterday and drove out to Kalgoorlie to pick up a 27 year old Honda CB250 that I just bought (and a friend who'd been looking after it for me and needed a lift back to Perth). It was by far the longest drive I've ever done in a single day, as my Surf kept overheating while towing the trailer, and it took us around 20 hours all up (including breaks). But anyway, now I have a bike. It's in pretty good shape for a bike of that age, and didn't cost me a lot. Could do with a new front tyre and has a bit of surface rust, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with it. It's *really* heavy for a 250, but I'm getting used to it pretty quickly, and it's got plenty of torque.
