Noel - New Guy
Hi I am Noel and in New Zealand
I had a BMW 1150RS for years (still have it) but wanted something with a bit more zip and handling, so picked up a 2002 900SS ie for a fair price, 36000 km.
Took the wife for one ride on it and she swore she was never getting back on it again....
While i was looking for the SS i had come across an ST2 and after she told me that i figured i may as well buy that as well, it was a Jap import 2003 ST2 with a genuine 8000kms on the clock (has 21000kms now), I have fixed a lot of things on it and still ongoing as little things turn up.
So I ended up with 3 bikes in the shed (none particularly expensive), the wife still loves the BMW so that is staying, I love the ST2 for solo touring, she is ok on the back of the ST2 for a few days but not for more than that (the BMW is ok for a 2 week tour with her)
And i kept the SS900 as well to get to town on weekends, not much point in selling it, there is not a huge market here
I do all my own mechanical repairs so look forward to a good forum and some participation from me.
