Will do bud. Test rode a 2012 990 yesterday but couldnt quite strech to what they wanted, so seen this one on e bay phoned they guy up had a chat. Then I walked the dogs had a beer whilst I decided what to do n phoned him back saying I want it. FSH with 11k on the clock, should be good I hope. Just hope it warms up before I pick it up as its over 4hrs up the road n its -1C at the mo with snow inbound for today. Brrrrrrrrrrrr

Got there finally......
 
Picked it up a month or two ago now, and have been getting used to it. Rode it home in freezing conditions, the ice (?) warning light being on for my 4 hr journey, snow showers etc. First impressions are wow, wow and wow!! Sounds superb (WINGS) and handles better on the road than something with a 21 inch front wheel should (Better now I have sorted the suspension out front preload was set differently on each fork). Not done much long distance work on it yet but cant wait. I have scratched, commuted, green lane'd it and done a camping weekend, all passed with flying colours. Its not as difficult to work on as some would have you believe. Cant wait for the summer to begin, bring it on!!

Gratz on the new ride...you look like a big fellow may I ask your height and weight cause you might be looking for the first expenditure in new fork springs...
