thanks for going to the trouble of spelling it all out for me like that - great effort mate, thanks again.
You certainly put the bike into some perspective for me and I appreciate that. I am seriously fence sitting at the moment and will wait until I get a ride on a Tenere weekend after next (famous SA 24 trial this weekend) to see how I feel on a heavy dirt bike, and yes, I'll be at Blinman for the TK ride so I can thank you personally with a cold local brew (well maybe a mexican one - I'm partial to Corona's).
I'll keep reading as you prgress with it.
