I went for a very excellent ride today with mkbwatts, DON EVANS and two other guys who aren't members, as far as I know. We did about 300 mi, beautiful weather, too much lunch etc. An all round good day.

But then I got home.

"It's been an eventful day" says my missus, "Oh" says I, thinking of injured kids, damaged vans and what ever else.

"So why was it eventful?"

"Well, you see, Mom told me there was a really good piano sale on at J J McLeans"

"Ummm?"

" Well they had this really nice used piano, sounds fantastic and comes with a free tuning and a five year warranty"

" Ah, so you want me to go look at it?"

"Oh well no, I know you never have your cell phone on when you're riding and somebody else was looking at it and, and well you know, I just hope you're OK paying for it."

Then the penny drops, about 300,000 of them, seems I bought a piano when I was out riding today.

What I want to know is how did you get it to fit in the trunk of the 1800? I could not even get a pizza in mine today Kit

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike. A crotch rocket with storage bags.............As for oil I use the slick kind, and I like round tires, but as of late I have found square ones work best on the rear. Pirelli Eufori 195/55/16 @ 32 PSI

Ain't that the truth, I've already suggested she should get her gear out she needs to ride.
