    Well it's December (Near Enough), time flies when you're having fun.
    Clocked up over 11,000 K's since acquiring the Africa Twin.
    Out both days for the last 3 weekends in a row, funnily enough, last run was with the Auckland Ulysses guys and girls, out of 10 bikes 6 were Adventure Trailles.
    Yes we did find a metal road, good fun and very stable, back roads to Tahuna, back, back roads (some I'd never heard of) around the back of Morrinsville and Tahuna, in the foothills overlooking the plains, awesome ride ladies and gents, good company, fine eatery (Mondiale Blue Berry Cafe, go there, it's amazing.'
    The Twin performed faultlessly, gassed up when I got home, 345 k's still had 3 or more litres i the 18 litre tank, no bloody sore Arse, no fatigued wrist/back etc.
    Ordered and awaiting two twin LED No5 Look alike eyebrow fog lights, for the front bars , so I can achieve a 3 light triangle, something I've noted you really don't miss when approaching them.
    Considering a main stand, but have put the seat on it's lowest setting and discovered that I am almost 100% touch downable with both feet at once, still a bit hairy on a sloping berm or when standing on metal, but acceptable.
    Just dagged her out of the shed, washed her, blow dried her and am considering going to take teh AK tag somewhere else this afternoon.
    Can't not ride on a dya like this.
    The K's hacve flown by, not riding during the week, or for work, so over 11,000K's in this time is not a bad effort,no worries, a service must be looming, talking to the boys at Botany about that soon.
    Still smiling!

    Good to see that you aren't wasting your money on an Indian. If you really want tassels I'll buy you some of those that fit on the end of bicycle handlebars. I can also give you a playing card to put in your spokes
