I'm finally on the road.

G'Day guys.

Well I finally got the bike on the road legally today after more than a year. I gotta say the wait was worth it. I went out for an hour long gentle ride getting used to her and we covered a lot of the great spots where I live. I'm gonna hit the road again shortly, man I'm having a ball, a year long project finished. Thanks to all the guys here for advice and encouragement on the way through. Guess I can start doing entries on the 'daily ride' thread now and hopefully some pics. We are just into Spring now, great riding weather.

That is good new Glen. You will enjoy this bike for many reasons, The pain of the times, the challenge of the mechanic's, the disappointment turned to joy for over coming the mechanical things and I hope for new friends. So name a date,time,do the math for me and I will go for a ride with you. No matter how cold or the time .

I just got home from a night ride and got wet arse, now it wants to rain, oh well better riding wet than not riding at all.

Thanks for the well wishes guys.

Hells Yes Aussie! I'm totally with you on that one...never too wet, too hot, or too cold for a ride on the bike!
