Is that your first bike ulthart ?
I too have a mistress who will be 20 years old in november. Spent a fortune on the pretty things for her all her life ( I think the wife suspects ) and in return she still takes my breath away, and if I ask her nicely she will still do 150 mph.
Oh by the way my mistress is a honda cbr 600.
So Ulthart you look after yours and she will look after you and bear in mind all cars out there are trying to get you. ( R6....nice mistress ).
Only been on a bike a couple of times (as a passenger). Both times scared me enough to be a few pounds lighter at the end of the ride! I can see the appeal though as you can have super car performance for a fraction of the price.
