Queen Mary Falls Ride

Just spent 7 fantastic hours on the GT today in some magnificent country. A real mix of road conditions but at least 6 hours of it was fast sweepers leaning to twisties.
The PR2s worked a treat and Im back in love with this bike.
A few pics:

Great scenery, and nice accessory in the second pic. Where can I get one, and does it come in any colors besides blonde?

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I think you ride way too much for that particular accessory to work correctly.

Meese, I would be very happy to do a deal with you for this peice of equipment but as a fellow K-Bikes member I must be honest about it.
I have had this accesory for almost 20 years and found it to be less than reliable. At first it was extremely simple to use and user friendly with all of its functions available, a real pleasure.
In later years it became less user friendly, difficult to understand and some of its functions just simply stopped working all together.
I would be very happy for you to purchase this accessory from me and in true motorcycle brotherhood spirit I understand that a good demonstration and test ride would be appropriate but I must warn you that it can be very difficult to get started.
Please send your bank account details and solicitors name so that I can commence transfer of ownership ASAP.

That's OK, I hear that the thrill of new ownership tends to smooth out some of the minor annoyances. At least in the beginning.

Actually, I'd love to come down your way and see the sights. We have friends in Melbourne and Adelaide that keep bugging us to come visit. One of these days . . .

Who? Me and the blonde? Or me and The Aussie? Or perhaps Queen Mary and the blonde? I'm so confused.
