Congratulations Blu, well deserved indeed. Hopefully when mine is 10 years old it may be up to this standard
Although at $4.00 a week its doubtful

What you think $6.00 a week will get me to BOTM that much quicker
but thanks for the idea all help is greatly appreciated
I do occasionally charge British parts on my parents card, I tell them it's easier then forget to pay them































































Ok I don't get away with that either

borrow in GBP & repay in USD . . . sounds like a plan to me

Congrats, I can't help but love this bike, my first R1 was bought in spring of 98, I originally wanted the blue but the magazine reviews and such made me go back to the dealer and say 'I don't care if it comes in shit brown, I want one!' thus I rode away with the red seated bastard, which has now become my favorite. The money you've decided to spend on it is soo well worth it, you could never be happing trading it in for a 2020.
