    Well, since I've started modifying this bike a bit I've decided to start a thread on it. Owned it for about 6 months now, in that time I've done about 15,000km. Going to have to take some photos of it soon and put them in the thread as well.

    Finished the first little change last weekend. Painted some of the letters on the tyres white. I like it, and it looks different to other bikes.

    Also made an addition to it today. Fitted a pillion seat and rear set pegs (well pillion pegs, but I can use them). The seat matches the current one perfectly, even has the same colour stitching.

    Definitely need the phots, going to be good weather tomorrow so bring it on the BBQ ride, I'll have my camera and we could probably squeeze in another man without too much imbalance.

    Probably, often park it out there near the Coles/Aldi.

    Might have to do the picnic ride. Could be a bit of fun, something different.

    Also another thing that I've done, replaced the hero blobs. Really need to do it again.

    Yep, come, we need more mounts for the bike races - the girls ride and we push, the winning 'motor' gets to lay on their back and grown "I'm buggered", the winning rider gets to prance around singing "we are the champions":)

    Actually its just so as to ensure Donna's daughter is no longer unsure as to her mothers sanity, she'd look good on the Harley I think:)

    You know in some social circles telling someone you are going to ride their bike is the equivalent of saying "Hey, I like your missus. I'll pinch a ride on her one day" :p

    I do agree, it is a good looking bike that has something unique about it.

    Looking though my external hard drive and found a photo of my bike from the day I picked the bike up from Robbo's.

    I can't believe you have only had it 6 months! Seems like longer... but good to see the mods coming along very nicely!

    Just looked at the dates, it's actually only been 5 months. Got it mid August. Hmmm, my maths is crap tonight. It's closer to 7.

    Well that would be 7 months :)

    I was just sitting here trying to figure out how it could be 6, given I met you just after I bought my BMW, and that was mid-August...

    Yeah, like I said, my maths is pretty bad tonight. Forgot it's 12 months, 8 minus 3 is 5, yeah that works. Hmmm, wait shout be (3-8)+12, quick edit it.

    That discovery ride with Pete was pretty good.
