why

Hello Don I bought the bmw because I got it about two thirds of the full value all kitted out abs panniers staintune ect with 1800 kms on the clock. But mainly because it rides and handles so sweet it was like getting out of a holden and into a bmw. As for working for myself most days are 10 - 12 hour stints with services ect done on weekends and no paid anual leave so if I get a chance to piss off Im gone and dont look back .I enjoy what I do but am looking to branch out into other things in the near future.(never sit still life is to boring) so Ill catch you guys on a ride soon maybe.

Hey Middy

Have you got enough room for 2 more peoples gear , in the Toyota?

Might have 2 others coming on XR650/600's.

They are not set up for carrying much gear as yet (working on it).

Have you talked Shoes into it yet?
I had a word at work the other day , he sounded half interested.

Middy's Magical Mystery Tour sounds good'er every day for those stronger than me at heart and with serious knobbly persuasion ;-) ...

Apart from that ... I've got surplus Gearsack saddlebags ... excellent design for trail-type bikes ... average or maybe slightly better condition ... new (I believe) ~$135 ... cost to me $75 1/2 a year ago ... if anyone wants them $60 ... see attached pic & the next or 2 ...

:-) a.

... The bags are on the GS500 on the left ... not a lot of detail, I know, but dat's the best I can do right now ... ahhh, and yes, dat's on the Western Explorer after a bit of a spill by her ladyhood ... :-) a.
