    How long till you change this title from 'Big Hole In The Ground' to 'Big Bldg In The Sky'? :wink:

    A mc endorsed girl I work with lives near there and got very excited when she saw what's being built there.

    Raise your hand if you've ever had trouble finding parking at The Shop :wave

    Now put your hand down, and keep it down, because that will never happen ever again. (I mean, I hope it does because that would mean we're busy, but that's beside the point).

    I taught it was the pavement for the supermotard course. All it needs is squiggly lines.

    If someone commits to buying an H2 without knowing the price, I will commit to ordering one without knowing what it's going to cost us. Until then, no guarantees, but depending on what the street-legal version looks like there is at least a chance we will order one.

    You could be the first to order one and then we'd get one for sure!

    We will probably be getting some for 2015, but we don't know any details about ordering or pricing yet.

    Thanks Andrew, I will be interested to see the size difference between the bikes. I know it's around 75-80 pounds heavier but seems a bit more built towards adventure riding than the 650. Hopefully you will have a demo bike............:lol3
