    Thank you all, I will definitely enjoy the ride!
    Previous, and still owned but for sale bike is a 2003 Speedy, a fast green one.
    Sold but not forgotten are, 07 Tiger, 05 Bonny, 72 Shovel with chair, 84 Duke 750 Sport, 84 Honda 1100, 78 Yammy cripple, 80 Kwacka 250A, then dozens of dirt bikes before all those.
    Been riding since I was 12, so 41 years, BLOODY! 35 years on the road.
    Ride every week day but not much on the weekends anymore, the Rocket makes a very nice commute bike.

    Cheeky sod. I'm not made out of old boot leather like you - I'm a delicate little flower.

    That's 86 degrees F (or as we say in the Midwest "pleasantly warm"). When it gets to 43 degrees C let me know, did an Iron Butt qualifier in that heat....

    43C is an oven.

    That's not normal for humans in my book.

    Not stealing your thread Gary, just need to warn Owl to stay away from Phoenix, Arizona. This week it's 48C (all week (the nights cool off to 30C tho)) and that's before the 'dog days' in July start (when it really gets toasty)....

    I take a sauna 3 times a week, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't get that hot in there!

    I'll take a look tomorrow.
