Yes, the rumours are true. The infamous Rollerskate is on the market (yes Glen, I prised it out after the last ride), and I've begun shopping for a replacement ride. Begun, and finished. Assuming everything goes to plan, once I get back from a brief holiday interstate in November, I can finalise the deal and become the proud owner of a very swish XV1600. OK, so I can't ride it until Dec. 10, but thats a minor hiccup. Thanks to everyone who's helped me along the journey so far - you know who you are - I look forwards to many, MANY miles in the (wider) saddle. And a little recommendation for Top Gear Motorcycles in Seaford. I made the effort to drive down there from Werribee (2hrs...) - was worth the trip. Now, can I tempt anyone with a slightly squashed Virago?
