    After far too many years without a bike, unless you count a Suzuki GP100 bucket racing motor and a non-running GP125 parts bike sitting in the garage doing nothing, or four years delivering mail for DX on a CT110 (probably 120,000km around the streets of Hornby, Templeton and Sockburn in all weathers), I've bought a Gas Gas Pampera 450. But I'm down here and it's up in the Waikato. Waiting for Motorcycle Movers to get it down here. Itchy, itchy itchy!!!!

    Well the Gas Gas is now here. I must say it feels more lively than the DR650 I test rode and as light as the KLX250 I tried as well. It's not quite street-legal yet so haven't gone far, but I think it's going to fun. Sounds pretty throaty too for a standard pipe. Shifting house next week so it won't get it's legs stretched for a few weeks.
