A Big Lump of Iron but I'm Very Fond of Her!

She still does it for me, despite newer, flashier machinery.  I'm not ready to trade yet!

I expect to have mine for quite a while yet . I own it , and it still does what I need it to do reliably & relatively cheaply .

Agreed fellas. I could go and buy the latest bike with cash but I'm not bothered. El bandito and Dr Z keep a smile on my dial

She really looks the part with the gold rims and the Delkevic's following suite, Dave. 
The belly pan really makes her stand out, too. 
I don't often get to ride "Jewel" as Chris has adopted her, but I got the chance to blow the cobwebs out of her recently. 
I still think that, for a big tourer, they are a cracking bike and put a smile on my dial each time I ride.

Putting the gold rims back on definitely got me admiring the total package, and new tyres always produce that feeling of riding something new. cheers

Yeah, that's it, I fixed the bits that I thought needed some attention.
