Gone and done what, you might ask. ?

Gone and ordered a new bike.
My first non Boxer since a 1968 Norton Dominator 88.
I am buying an F900XR

Just had a test ride, loved it.
I will no doubt have lots of questions to ask from other "F" riders.

Did about the same last year, bought a Guzzi V7iii as replacement for the R100CS I lost in 2012.
Now I'm in the process of customising it so it looks like a modern version of the R100CS.
Meanwhile I still ride my (modified) R1150R.

Have a nice time riding the new bike.

Congrats.
I have yet to find a modern bike that makes me want to buy it.

Got it now.
Had a few extras put on it, which needed ordering.
This is it.
