Busy means alive and healthy I suppose [sdsdsdtq]
Keep it that way, as always in winter I'm jealous and pining for the (our) summer, it's freeeezing over here.

Good to hear things are rosy up your way. Yeah Bugger about the season eh, you can hang on to that one for a while 😜. The weather has been good lately, bike, well, not so great. So far I've destroyed a rear tyre (literally come apart in chunks?!?!?), split a drive belt (bloody stones) nuked a rear set of pads (liner split causing odd breaking feel) and dropped a load of oil due to a filter seal failure. Has cost me a small fortune right on Xmas, something I hadn't banked on so the budget took a hit. Bike now all sorted, waiting on the flaming rain to stop now hahahaha.

Btw, been eyeing up Honda FB6 lately, lovely machines.

Split drive belts and destroyed tyres, sounds like you'd better change to an Africa Twin or so, if you want to change to the right manufacturer anyway. At least the right amount of cylinders, that F6 has far too many pots for you. winky5a

Hehehe, yep an AT would be a good choice, I love the look of
Em. However not a good choice for pillioning, a tad too snug and cramped.

Yep the the fb6 is the right brand, a true blue Honda. No doubt will have some similarities to a CBR................ bullet proof reliability and sensible maintenance, hehehe.

That said, my darling wife (aka the bank manager) has just declined the fb6 application................. she likes the noise, bling, power and comfort of the big Vulcan, Bugger, I miss read that one 😄

I've tried all the usual husband trickery, you know the ones, plenty of talking up the bike, showing pretty pics, visit to the bike shop, talking to owners, but alas her love of the big Vulcan wins over. Bugger, I'll try again year year, 👍


Not to worry, the Vulcan is still a great beautiful beastie to hammer the road with and scare little children and their dogs (interpreted as: Harley owners and their bikes, hehehe)

👍

Come on now, there's plenty of room on an African 2, and that dual clutch is amazing, I tested one last summer (I'll never buy one ofcourse, its way slower than my old 1000 gribbin12 ).
It'll hold up to your kind of roads much better than any old Kawi smilywhistle

Oh there's plenty of room in the garage for all sorts. But alas the funds are somewhat shallow, hahahaha.


Still want an NR750 👍

That would be around 200k of your NZ dollars? smile1004swing
I'd say take 2, one for you and one for the wife gribbin12

But I meant plenty of room ON the AfricaTwin....and concerning funds, exchange that cruiser for the allroad, shouldn't cost much more money.
