that IS brilliant, damien......

I used to own a Commando 850 Interstate when I lived in Oz in the late 70's......mine never ran as sweetly as that, lol.......sold it one saturday morning in canberra whilst hung over to a nutter that would have bought anything really after listening to my out of tune weazy ill times piece of junk........I soon swapped to Beemers and bought an R90s.....best bike for pure reliability I ever had.

neil.

I boughtmy 90s from a chap in north Sydney....flew down from canberra to pick it up, and then rode it back to C.........it was so ballanced and beautiful to ride, that I really got hooked into it........and did the trip in 2 hours 50 minutes...........saw one copper sat on the bonet of his charger, eating his chips in a town called Mittagong...........as I streaked through, and that was it..............will always remember that ride.........it just flowed so well.



I'd love another, but at my age and the traffic over here I'd probably kill myself, as no doubt......I won't have calmed down in the last 32 years or so............my brain still thinks my body can react as fast as when I was half my age, lol
