Yes! Another MetalJockey RR, and a family one to boot. I'm sitting here drooling all over my computer. I've had the priviledge of working in Africa (Sierra Leone in 2002/2003), and vacationing in Botswana, Zambia & S.A.

It can't be explained and "if you have to ask you won't understand" but set one foot on that red dirt and it's in your blood! I've been on every continent and haven't found one that affects you like Africa. So I'm subscribed to this one.

We'll be back, may not be with a motorcycle but we'll be back.

Keep it up, awesome RR and loving the pictures.

Aaargh!... I was there in 2007 and I perfectly remember that apple cake ...

How do you like the X compared to the 640?
What prompted you to change? (Other than "new bike syndrome ")
