Test ride and purchased
« on: April 03, 2014, 07:46:05 am »
We normally do about 12,000 miles in 8 months, riding from March to Oct, and told my buddy about the SE, he had a test ride last week and is now selling his GS to make room in his garage for the SE arriving next week. His comments were...the most comfortable, weather proctected, torquey, mile crunching bike he had ever ridden!!!
As soon as I'm fit enough the SE will be mine. Having just sold my Explorer after 2 years, which ended up like a new bike after going back to the factory 3 times, new head, ecu, exhaust, footpegs, centre stand etc.
I just need to be stronger after a couple of operations for the big C! 😎

Thanks guys, this is the first time since I passed my test 40 years ago that I've not been able to ride, and it's already driving me crazy as I had to stop last August when the chemo started, but now it's just the waiting around to get back to fitness, but you've got to have goals and mine is get on the SE and head off to the Alps again with my mate, and I can't wait!!  :152:
