Welcome Dave from downunder!

Are you willing to give up any more info about yourself? Pics of the bike? How/when you like to ride? How long you been riding?

(we like to get nosy around here )

righteo then, I'll throw in a photo of a ute, a telegraph pole, a pretty bush and my bike..
Where I live its riding season 12 months a year, I am a fair weather rider though, I try to get out at least once a week and hit up the highlands near home (but still attempt to hit 150km in distance to make it count as a ride.) I love within a few K's of some of the best roads the state has to offer for bikes.. so thats where I head

sticker on the tank is a temporary measure to see if I like it there before commiting to a colour matched airbrush effort.

Thanks Levi,
was implying that Its not undercover for 2 seasons of the year
To be honest I don't know about any other painting, was leaning the way of bobber guards and a set of apes, it all does add up pretty quick, when everything you want to do costs over 10% of the total value of the bike each and in reality does nothing to enhance value I have to really ponder each thing. although I have some funds cleared from tax time which was going to go towards a hypercharger and thugstar exhaust, but with the offer of bobber bits.. more pondering is in action.

Totally understand, discussions discussions! I have always like the bobber look, but the Apes seemed uncomfortable on a friends bike, I'm not to sure how I would do on a long trip, but the look is NICE.
Good luck and ride safe

G'day Mate from a transplanted Aussie living in San Francisco... Melbourne girl

Just a quick translation for all you north Americans - a ute is basically a smaller version of what you all call a "truck". The kind you use to transport dirt bikes and whatnot.

That telegraph pole is in need of care. How often does it get maintainence?
