Here it tis.

OK, will put you all out of your misery, besides I am so excited I got to tell people.

I have to say I don't think the pics do it justice, it is a stunning bike in the flesh. 

These are not my pics but ones taken from the advertisement  I will post some of my own up when I get the bike in the garage, picking it up tomorrow.

This bike is going to be soooooooooooooooooooo much fun!  Welcome to the world of hyper sports touring....

All good things...

My all time favourite pic of the Sprint.

Worlds longest place name.

must come to an end.

And so it is,  that I bid farewell to my beloved Sprint.  Sold in the flash of an eye.

58000kms of happiness together has come to an end.  Time to move on.  Time for change.  It is the most mileage I have ever done on a bike I owned.   It has always been a good and reliable bike.   BUT..


I love bike shopping.

No sooner had the casket been lowered, the dirt piled high, was I out searching for the next thing to float my boat...

Actually motorbikes seem a bit like my relationships...they last about five years!  (actually some only lasted five days but that is a drinking story, and don't get me started on the five hour ones).  Buy me a bottle of Vodka and I will tell you all about it.

Anyway I digress..

I just felt it was time for a change, the sprint has been a great bike for me. But while I still can I want some thing with a little bit more sports than touring, a bit of grunt, and it needs to be sexy....besides I need to keep up with that old bastard from Coromandel.

So my lovelies watch this space....

I Will give you a hint though...it's black!

(hope you enjoyed some of my favourite pics with my bike)
