Don't get me wrong, I do like speed too, but not on our roads anymore. My other boney is a Ducati Monster which I keep in our capital Pretoria. I go up there frequently on business and then at least I have wheels. It is also the only method of transport between Johannesburg and Pretoria that allows you to have meetings in both cities on the same day!A slow cruze on rural roads is my favorite bike time. It's nice to enjoy the scenery the smell of the country without some idiot tailgating trying to get past on the first little bit of straight road they see. I've had my other bike since 1983 but there are no parts in NZ anymore.

Riding there has become a suicide mission - so I am contemplating only using it on track days and extending my business trips to 3 days instead on one, and use UBER. .... but then, I would be in a constant bad mood and being in the twin cities would drive me to suicide anyway.... decisions, decisions, decisions!
There truly is nothing better to settle the mind than a bike ride. Blows the cobwebs right out!
