G'day all! You might like to call me Tai if you prefer.No resemblance to our poisonous variety however (one of the most poisonous snakes in the world). A little background. Back in 02 my wife, Jen wanted me to buy a wing but in my wisdom I went for an Yamaha FJR 1300. During the past 5 years I have sampled the following, all new by the way. Honda Shadow VT 1100 Sabre, Yam V-Star 1100 Custom and finally last november back to another new FJR. The FJR was an incredible machine but the seating just did not "sit" comfortable with my gal so the time came to join you all in some comfort. (I realise now she was right in 02!)

I have just traded the FJR for a 2001 wing in showroom condition, a credit to it's previous owner. The bike has only done 34,000 klms. and most of those on long highway trips. Shortly I will post a pic, if I can work out how to do it. The wing had a couple of minor faults which the dealer fixed and one which you will become aware of in a tech. post. Other than that I am wrapped with the bike....so is my gal! I have lurked here for a few weeks and commend Steve and the members here for what seems to be a great group to be a part of. Regards from South Oz, Tai
