PostSubject: Jumping in at the deep end.......   Sat Apr 09, 2016 4:29 pm

Well our friend Greg who has moved from Oz to the USA was thinking of shipping his 2010 Tenni over but the hoops he would of had to jump through made it an impossible proposition. So the bike comes to me for rollerisation and decisions have to be made as to what he's going to do.

Long story short the bodywork, pipe, rack and screen are coming off and heading to the US where they will end up going on Greg's new bike. The *Naked* remains I have bought and my spare bodywork will be going on making it into a Nero on Nero SE but this isn't for resale or for me!

This is going to be Michael's bike, my new offsider's who has been bitten by the GRiSO bug! Only problem is he only got his bike licence yesterday so it'll be a long two years before he can legally fling his leg over it as our learner laws prevent him riding something with such a power to weight ratio and engine size. Oh well. I suppose I'll just have to keep it excercised. My life really is an inexhaustible torrent of misery and disappointment! Twisted Evil

He knows of the Ghetto. He'll probably be along soon enough.............

By your "spare bodywork," Pete, do you possibly mean that bearing colors (thankfully) not found elsewhere on this planet?  Shocked

Oh, well.  Michael is young and probably doesn't know any better.  Wink

Seriously, good for you.  And, lucky Michael.

Don't out draconian laws allow top notch machinery once you are over 30? I thought so, but then again I might be wrong!

If yer over 25 with a full drivers licence, you can skip the P2 bit and ride a big'n after 12 months. You still need to do the training courses.

I don't give a flying fuck what he wants! Until he's paid for it it remains in my grubby little mits!

Bill, no, my spare bodywork is black, so black frame, black plastics = Nero on Nero! I reckon it'Ll look pretty damn good.

He's a wog! Of course he's dodgy!

(Note for non Aussies. Over here 'Wog' was a term that was applied to anyone of *Mediteranean* appearance. It used to be an insult until the wogs turned it around and turned it into an enormous piss-take! It is now worn as a badge of pride and in the usual banter of assholes taking the piss out of each other at the pub is considered legitimate ammunition in the same way I am a Pom, Udo is a Boxhead and anybody who is Welsh is a stupid fucking Welsh bastard! Razz )

Wow, stuff at Pete's looks shiny now, must have cleaned it up.

Is it a new boutique? Got some T's hanging up, many sizes of new helmets?

Just sayin Hey Pete They let me in over here. Retirement is OK

Will most likely ride more & post less, like it was before I got a puter
