Rustic's Arrival

Post  Rustic on Mon 09 Jan 2012, 7:31 pm

Hi there folks,

I was recommended to this site by a fellow Kiwi, and rider.

Name's Sam just a shy quite typical Kiwi living in Wellington New Zealand. Have been riding for a number of years both Dirt and Road and love the freedom and independence I get when I ride.

So why this site?

Well I promised myself I'd never buy another Bandit. Never been good at keeping my own promises so I have just gone out and bought a brand spanking new GSX 1250 FA - Technically it's not really a Bandit so promise sort of kept Wink Had actually planned to by a Fat Bob but hey that's another story, so was taking out the Busa for a test ride.

My new baby arrives from the Supplier Wednesday or Thursday this week and I'm getting a little excited. Not too excited though as I live semi country in a house that sits halfway up a hill with no garaging (yet). So for the last two days I have been braking rocks and digging out a flat area for a concrete pad (by hand). Have almost finished building a purpose built bike garage...

As I get familiar with the site I'll post the usual pics etc.

So in a nut shell that's a little of me.

Sam aka Rustic

Welcome Sam.
I had to wait 28 days for mine to arrive.
Enjoy and i won't include my usual question to new Kiwi members because I know you have a bit of class Laughing

Hey fellow Kiwi. Be sure to bring the beast around this weekend so we can have a look and compare notes. First task is to get the Stebel on for you!
