    The first official order with deposit for the first bike in Australia. I did it the following morning of the release.

    And Lesley just shook head and laughed when I told her what I had done.

    Just will not be around to see this be a classic and all the talk from today's young guys on how a lot did not like it when it was released. History repeating itself??????
    Ride it, don't hide it!

    The drill? A bit early to be taking the drill to the new bike although I am sure there are those amongst us that may have such plans.........
