I was looking at one of them. Was it small enough? The geometry looked a bit too big for me.

You gals have fun in Adelaide!

Nice bike, FG, I test rode one (top of the range) last year, pity that I can't afford the 10K price tag, sigh!

Yeah, even 8 grand is pushing it! Maybe after my daughter completes school, I can divert the money that I spend on school fees towards a new bike....there's only 10 months to go :wink:

Yeah, but that was last year!!! :roll:

By the time we pay off the school fees for this, our final year ever, and then save up for a new bike it will be 2013....Mr MM has to finish paying off his Fondreist as well :roll: :roll:

Doesn't hurt to look and go for a test ride every now and then :wink:

So how are we all doing.
Just came home from the TDU
Love it so much, I am happy that I finished, I have to say I found it hard as I have not been on a long ride like this for 8 years. It was worth it

Congratulations Apple! I'm so happy you made it (I knew you would)! Bit worried that Tony Abbott has now followed you to Adelaide - he is keen :wink: were you able to lose him in the airport?
