It gives me great pleasure to be back on the road again with another K. Many thanks to Ringfad (Simon) for agreeing to sell me one of his collection. Had forgotten how much easier the 100 mile commute is on an RS. I feel like a weight has been lifted. Very Happy

Oh No everybody hide under the table, quick he's back. Laughing

We all knew that Kpox would win out in the long run.

Welcome back EM,

Worried about Ringfad though - he's losing K's at an alarming rate, rapid K loss is not healthy, perhaps he needs to see a DoKtor about the problem before he turns his K1 into a cafe racer and buys a GS......

A weight has been lifted. You have been very sorely missed and its good to see you back.

Getting worried about Ringfad though. That's two Ks in quick succession. Wondering now about that nice shiny low mileage K1 up on eBay...is he making room for it????????

Either way its brilliant you are back. A sort of a plan was hatching to get a few Ks for a coffee soon, maybe we see you at Crosshaven on May 30th.

Does this new K now mean you have three steeds in your stable?

Excellent buy and good luck with it all....now hope you make it down here for May 30th..........be nice to see the new K. I suppose it came from NornIron?

Just goes to prove....Kpox is incurable and contagious.

Don't worry about Ringfad, I was up with him on Saturday and he was showing me another K he had just bought.

At this rate he may have to register as a trader Very Happy

Crickey Simon, I'll have to have a sit on that and make BRoom broom noises, I was very taken with Reg's and missed a real bargain on one by two hours a couple of years ago. Well wear!

Olaf, unfortunately can't make the 30th of May as its our 10th wedding anniversary. On the upside I'm taking her to Slane to see The Foo Fighters and Hozier, and we may have to go on the K..... Very Happy

Simon, 500 miles, adjusted up the rear shock to suit my slightly???? heavier carcass and she's going great. The tyres are actually pretty good despite the squared off look of the front. Took the long route home this evening on the back roads and made the same time as the main road.....go figure

The world is a better place.
