Picking up my 1st bike tomorrow

  1. Finally..

    I am picking up my 1st bike tomorrow - a 1989 Spada, $3500, 26,000km. I have been planning this point in time for about 16 years, and seriously planning for about 6 months.

    The wife won't be happy, but I am sure she will come around when she doesn't have to drive me to work on a Saturday morning with a hangover!

    Thanks everyone for your advice on helmets, jackets, boots, bikes, etc.

    See you on the road.
