Thanks all. At this point its a waiting game for the transport company. Buying a bike from a seller out in the sticks has its upsides and downsides.

Can understand that. We have it lucky in UK. Can hire a van and go from one end of the country AND BACK in less than a day!! As mentioned long ago, I drove 6 hrs each way to Glasgow, Scotland to view mine before arranging a transporter. All worth it in the end!!

Finally showed up today. Covered in dust from the transit in an enclosed trailer...go figure. 6 hours later of cleaning and swapping out after market parts, im wasted. Put a few miles on her and what a great feeling, like she never left. Dropped my 'goto' helmet helping the transport guy unload, so Ill be wearing my Rothmans Arai until I can get another daily helmet. My old Caberg modular was great, might snag another one.

This is the first time I have bought a bike unseen and was pleasantly surprised. Normal marks on the belly fairing, dirty as hell but cleaned up perfect. I spent the last couple weeks buying parts online to put it back to stock. Kinda felt bad pulling a perfect black carbon front fender off but found a NOS red one in Italy for cheap. Tomorrow ill strip off the Ago sticker kit and hopefully get it registered.

I owe you one Nigel!

Hot off the presses....




And this one is from the 'for sale' ad. Not bad but I could see things I needed to swap out change for my liking. She just needed a good scrubbing to look purdy again.



A small nick here and there but nothing I cant live without. Took her on another ride today, no issues. Got an oil change in the mail, getting some engine ice probably tomorrow if I dont pick up my new Africa Twin.
