Had my bike test today, in the pooring rain. Passed with 2 minors (going too fast in the wet and hesitating twice at a junction).
So, off down FirstLine Motorcycles, dropped of my Varadero and picked up my Transalp
My god, this things HUGE! I’m 6’3 and I can only just get both feet touching the ground at the same time! Although it’s probably the slower option of the bikes I coulda bought, it’s got plenty enough punch for me (for now anyway )
What a weight off my mind…
Great news - very well done
stepping up myself very very soon
nice one mate, so you off adventuring anywhere now, you got all the luggage!!!
Congratulations on passing
Nice one dude! we;ll have you on to an AT or a big Vara in no time!!!
Congrats fella, welcome to the world of proper biking
Congratulations on passing the DAS.
Didn’t fancy the Varadero Litre version then??
Thanks for the comments all
I think the insurance man might not have liked me getting the Varadero 1 ltr. I’m happy enough with the Transalp
Yeah, I’m hoping to make a trip to see relatives near Cork sometime in May. The panniers should be useful for that, they’re off again at the moment.
Congrats - enjoy the bike!
Congratulations on passing!! Be nice to see you on some ride outs.
YAY!!! Well done you, bet you haven’t stopped grinning!
Only just seen your post Andy
Dead chuffed for you … yay
Nice one dude, welcome to the real world…
Tbf, my decision wasn’t really insurance based. I narrowed it down to 3 or 4 bikes I was looking for and then looked in the local bike shops for the exact one I wanted.
Congratulations, enjoy the bike.
Hope you don’t miss your Varadero, may sound odd but I still miss mine occaisionaly - great little bikes
Well done you enjoy your new ride
