Getting a new motorcycle inspires in me the sort of childish, unadulterated elation that only Christmas day when I was little could ever match. Hopefully it does the same for you. Have fun on the new bike, and be sure to put up some pics for us (of your bike and the race).
Congrats I'm sure you'll love it. I picked up a "new to me" 05 Bonnie last night and took the day off today to get the insurance and goverment paperwork stuff out of the way. It seems I keep finding excuses to ride it places.
I sold my Scrambler some time ago, as part of a new healthier lifestyle. I 'gave up' motorbikes, bought a bicycle and gave my computer to a neighbour. It failed mainly because I discovered I wasn't as ill as I thought, long story. I still cycle occasionaly, I don't really miss my computer, but I wish I still had my Scrambler. It's still in the shop, but the dealer wants too much for it. He told me it's deliberately overpriced so he can use it himself.
I made a mistake. So it goes.
I got scunnered with public transport very quickly and bought a Honda Transalp, it's a very good motorbike. My son has it now and today I traded his Tenere against the T100 for me. I was thinking about other bikes, including buying my friend's Thruxton to make a 'Thruxville', but elected for a clean start with the T100.
I don't know what I'll be doing to it yet, beyond fitting luggage for a tour later in the year, I'll need to have a good swatch at the threads on efi first.
I was surprised when I read your post as the last I can remember is you saying you were giving up biking to change your lifestyle for health reasons. Very glad to hear you're not as ill as you thought and are back on a bike. Good luck with the new T100 and hope you get many years of enjoyment from it. Have fun at the NW200.
