    Must have just had a quick rush of blood to the head... Lol

    I just swapped this....

    Nothing really wrong with the bike, just needs a couple of tyres, a rear brake light switch, GI style loving and TLC, and Nsw rego (just expired in Vic). Won't be riding it of course, until I'm out of my nappies, and have the experience!

    Seems a fair deal to me. Nothing wrong with a sprint, one of the bikes I have on my list to replace the burnt Honda ST1100.
    I know a couple of riders with them and they think they are pretty good.
    Will it be like Grey's Triumph, or will you actually ride it? :lolsign:

    I agree, its a fair deal - I am stoked! I should clarify - I'm crazy for getting a big sports bike.. Lol. No, but seriously, i love the bike - and I will definitely be riding it!!

    The Fizzer is my first love (apart from the Honda 50!) and she will be completed, registered and ridden, and kept. The Triumph is my mistress :lolsign:

    An Alfa Romeo for a 955 Triumph???...................that's not a rush of blood, it's called mid life crisis:lolsign:
    Mate she looks good, just think of it this way when everyone else is busy rebuilding carbs you'll be partaking of a refreshing beverage or two and not a spot of grease to be seen.:D isn't life GRAND.
    Well done Grasshopper :thumb_ups:
