WTF have I done????

  • There I was, going about my own business, when a neighbours son engages me in conversation about bikes - not un-commom I have to admit, the talking about bike bit ;D - and before I know it, he's popping round in the evening to view my bike with a view to buying it!

    And he does . . . . . . and he buys it!!!!! :o

    There's a hole in my garage dear Liza dear Liza, there's a hole in my garage, dear Liza a hole.

    WTF do I do this to myself?

    Oh well, a hunting I will go, a hunting I will go, eee iii adeo a hunting I will go ::)

  • Two questions for you gents...

    1. What’ll he buy next?
    2. How long? (to the nearest hour)

    My guesses...

    1. Honda CRF250L
    2. It’s Sunday night now, so, 4 days 10 hours.

    '04 TDM900, ‘84 XL600R (again) & Mrs. JRT’s F650GS

  • Three Dawg - not a fan of the Orange machines (well, maybe the Mounties 1050 Adv is OK ;)), so no 790 size hole in my garage ::)

    Craig - Twas indeed a great bike - but there are plenty more great bikes out there waiting to be found / tried out. Looking but not actually thinking of filling the whole. Really want to pile some miles onto the ibkle Alp, now that it's on the road . . . . in time for some snow :o

    Andy - If I didn't protest you'd think something was wrong ;D

    Jim - I have now and in the past looked very closely at the CRF250, but lets face it, it's a fare slep the get to legally ridaeable trails from my end of the island, so a dedicated rough-road machine would be wasted. hence my indulgence with dual role machines.
    Took the Alp across a section of track this evening that I did on the F8GS just last week and I actually felt the alp was better at the small section I did than the GS. It's nice to have a gentle V-twin thrumming along as you cover some dirt ;D ;)
    The bike will probably be my ride of choice for Dent next month, so you'll get a chance to see it in the metal when I drop that gear off ;D

    For now I'll just enjoy some miles on the Alp and the Strom, whilst browsing gumtree for bargains ::) ;) ;D
