Nice work Andy :)


i will have to pop over once it arrives.


i agree with customer service can be dogs sometimes, same thing happened with us looking at new cars for wife paid for by her work etc so we were there to commit 100%, 40 minutes wait i walked out and said to them dont bother we will go elsewhere etc

Well the guy came and picked up the XL600RM today, nice bloke from a northen victorian boarder town. So his plan was to ride the bike home from my place up the freeway (about 3hrs ride) no worries, I gave it a full detail last night checked the tyres and filled up the tank for him ready to ride ;D When I saw the helmet he was going to use I nearly died :eek: an old Scott mx helmet with the plastic bolt on chin gaurd, so I hooked him up with My rjays induro helmet since He gave me a more than fair price for the bike ;D then I asked where his jacket was? no riding jacket, so I gave him my Honda induro jacket (fit him better anyways :D) I was happy to give him these extras in the name of safety! Would have hated myself if something happened and I hadn't sorted him out with the gear. Sad to see the old girl go Happy knowing what I have on order ;D Plus my complete new set of riding gear ;D


This Answer helmet is just an example, his looked like it had spent years rolling around in the back of a ute......

that fz8 is pretty near the top of my short list of new bikes i would love to buy immediately. I would be giddy as a kid on christmas if i were you

Squirell!!
I've ridden the Yammie and I enjoyed it very much. Definitely consider that if I was in the new bike market. Would also look at the new CB1100 as well but I've always liked Hondas

Does it come in gloss white? I thought it was just matte black/gray. I liked the white with red class sic Yamaha look
