    Well lads I've gone and done it! I flew to Sydney on the red eye flight Saturday morning. By 10.30am I was makin tracks out of town on this baby...

    [​IMG]

    First impressions from a long trip:
    - WOW! What a bike! Smiles for Miles!
    - Seat is a little tough on the arse.
    - Did I mention the sound!?!?!?!?! Music to my ears!

    I had one minor/major problem on the way home... fuel... leaking... :eek1 The breather on the right hand side tank that links it to the left tank was leaking from around the grommit. So when the bike is full/near full under heavy acceleration fuel would seap from around the grommet and run down the side of the bike. :cry It's made a bit of a mess of the clear protective film over the stickers and left marks on other parts of the guards and tank..
    I'll get it sorted when it goes in for it's 15000km service in a week or so. Dunno if anything can be done on a warranty level in regards to the marks on the guards and tank...? :ear

    Anyways it's off to Regency Park tomorrow to get the ID check done and transfer the rego over. :D

    The best way I can relate the purchase of this bike to you is... It's like getting a drop dead georgous new girlfriend - you don't need to be riding her all the time... just looking at her keeps you satisfied at times too!:lol3

    Aaron.

    Just to prove how small Adelaide is...

    When I was at Regency Park getting the ID check done, Paul the original (first) owner was there having a check done on another bike he'd also got from NSW. What a spin-out. :huh :eek1

    Best part is, is that he's got some bits and pieces from the bike still that he will give me..

    See it's not all bad Adelaide being a small place..

    :D

    I was originally going to ask if that was Goldfinger's old bike - then I saw the NSW reg and thought that it couldn't have been :scratch

    Have a search around for posts by Goldfinger and you'll find some history to your bike
