Yes sorry, I bought it in April
I didn't start a thread because I thought you all might ridicule me and take the piss.
Yeah yeah I know.
Buying new is a mugs game, but this is a bike I just had to have.
I started off not going much on it, but after a while I got to the point where I just couldn't not have it.
It is rather splendid.
One of those, every ride is an event, type bikes.
In fact I'm going to have to reign myself in, as I've done 1,300 miles already and my finance agreement only allows me to do 4,000 for the whole year.
Just got to hope that in 3 years I can afford to buy it outright.
