I couldn't wait any longer...

Well, Suzuki's On road deal convinced me to bring forward my bike delivery

I have just got home after picking her up

Ready and Waiting



All Loaded Up



Brand Spanking New..



Jeffreys were fantastic to deal with, a pleasure to visit and get info. I can't recommend them highly enough

Now i just have to figure out which farkle to start installing first. So much cool stuff has already arrived, there is probably a weeks worth of work just getting what i have already installed.

Cheers

Steve

Thanks Bob, i would have loved a white one, but they were not available as 2011 plated ABS bikes. The silver is growing on me

I am taking her to a mate's factory tomorrow, so i can pull her apart and see what is involved in ditching the headlight/fairings.

I hope to get the forkbrace, HDB bars and handguards, footpeg lowering kit, pivot pegs and Aprilia mirrors installed tomorrow.

Cheers

Steve

So you have just told the world you would rather ride a Bimota and drink lattes than ride a Strom and get wet.

I can't help it if Italian bike owners decide at short notice to shift their event from November to April just to clash with mine.

I've got a white one and it is a lovely colour on the Wee - but the silver ones with the silver wheels look fantastic on the road. Very elegant, and I think you've got the right colour.

BTW, that's the first new bike I've seen delivered to the buyer with 0 on the odo. Normally they have 1 or 2km from the mechs doing a round the block test.

Mines a white one too but the dark silver looks very smart.

Look even better when you get the "K-mart" stickers off the fairing.

You have a great bike there!
