Thanks guys.

Just been out on the bike today - did approx 100 miles, so not too far. The motor's a total peach and pulls like crazy. Handling's peg-scrapingly good too. Lovin' it - quite a change from the old Dyna.

Couple more pics of the 'Rod.





Will take some more photos tomorrow as I've had chance to polish it up properly this afternoon. Sounds sad perhaps, but after riding it the next best thing is sitting out in the sunshine, with a tin of Mother's polishing all that alloy.

Spent 8 months ridding round Oz bike had 3000kms on it when i brought it in OZ 39000kms when i shiped it back to the UK .
Started in Sydney rode down to Melbourne then up to Cape Tribulation back down to Townsville then across to Alice & down
to Ayers Rock Back up to Darwin then across to the top & down to Perth across the Nullarbor & on to Adelaide then to
Melbourne then up to Canberra & Mount Kosciusko back to Sydney . Then i got bored so went for a short ride up the coast
but as id been that way already i took the inland road ended up i Brisbane then zig zaged back using what dirt roads i could
find Skidded at Sydney & ended up in the Snowy Mountains again heed for the coast
using dirt & back road where i could find them then finished back in Sydny . Made quite a few side trips & had a great
time & met alot of great people . If you want any more info Or pics let me know .

Sounds like a great trip. Would love to do that myself one day.

My sporty on my way to bike week:



Two of the reasons I go to bikeweek:



Looking at KTM 950 adv now, but the lil' sporty sure has been a fun/classic ride.

Great shot, beautiful machine! If I weren't looking to add a 950 adv to the stable, I'd be sorely tempted with the vrod. I have a sporty and every time I go to the dealers' I have to pass by all of the beautiful vrods there. A future classic.
