I'm in!

Love hearing about this part of the world, cause I would love to take my time and tour whenever A) I have money, B) I have time.

Yes and no. The house was sold, and my dad didn't want to fill up his new garage with the TX750, since I already had my ZX-9R to put away as well. So the bike was offered to one of the people...
