Hi guys...
I have been roaming this site for quite some time. Today I sold my 955 Tiger and put down a deposit on an 07 S3 roulette green with low arrow pipe. it's a beauty! But unfortunately I won't be able to pick it up until next Friday (and it's 80 degrees here!!!).
It will be a very loooooong week.....
I already have a few mods in mind... thank to this great site!

Awesome you will love it. I had to wait two months to get to ride mine. It was in the 40's today so I rode it. Wow.

I waited 7 months, seriously. The dealer sold the only 2 bikes he got for 05 before I called, and I was supposed to get the 3rd 05. I ended up having to wait for the first 06. Then I had to sell my Hardley Ableson, which took 2 weeks. I ended up getting the second 06. The dealer would have held the first for me, but I felt bad doin that to the guy in line behind me so I told the dealer to go ahead and let him have that one. I bet that guy is even on this site. Anybody get the FIRST '06 speedy from Engle Motors in KC MO? You owe me... big time.... :-D

I used to ride a Hardley Ableson, and I used to think that was fun.

Congrats... a week isn't too long. Do you still have the the tiger in the mean time?

I made my deal in December (remembering that December is Summer here in Oz) and picked it up last week (late February)

A friend of mine bought a new bike so I was riding with her - running her bike in - 1000km in 2 weeks around Sydney

now we get to do it all over again (except no Christmas break off work to do the running in )

Andrew - Between bikes so currently riding other peoples'
Previous rides - '07 Triumph Speed-Triple 1050, '03 Honda VT1100C Shadow Sabre, '02 Ducati Monster 620 Dark, '98 Honda VT250 Custom

If all is not lost... Then where is it?

Hey Cat,

Please join us for a burger at Sonic in St. Paul/Wylie next Tues evening. There's always a bunch of odds/ends bikes. I'm kinda tired of being the only guy there that shows up on an S3. You gotta answer questions all night ya know. Like

"no, I'm not compensating for a small ...",

"yes it does scare women and children",

"no, it runs on jet fuel",

"of course black is fastest",

etc. etc.
