    Bike looks so small now. I like tinkering so have a few ideas already but it will stay standard for a while. Will see how long that idea lasts. Was over the whole waiting thing but I then went away with work anyway so made the time go more quickly. Not supa excited anymore but still keen as to give it a good crack. Just something ive always wanted to do but at the same time I want to do it well. Sore shoulder at the moment as I have a propensity to crash my pushie. Hopefully this doesnt transfer when riding a motorbike.

    Well I lasted 4 days before I changed something :-/. Oggy knobs and rear seat cowl. Minus a few stickers, hate stickers. Rear hugger and radiator screen next on the cards.

    First ride around my suburb. Dont think theres a big enough smiley face. Wonder if my neighbours got sick of me putting around for the last 2 hours. Cant wait for those practice sessions.
