Damn, I actually stood next to a sport 1000 in the dealer while my monster was getting its loooooong overdue 20k service the other day and I cant stop thinking about it now.

The only thing (and I do mean ONLY) that's stopped me emptying my savings account is the lack of a pillion seat.

One thing I love to do is take girls out for a ride - who am I not to give them the opportunity to cuddle up to me and maybe sneak a grope in ?

Why, WHY? could they not have put a couple more pegs on the back ?

hey six20aus,
are you an aussie ? have you checked out the Hooligans Downunder forum under Local clubs ?

now, back to your topic, I just dropped into Northside Cycles and they inform me that the sport 1000 will have a pillion seat next year.....perfect for you to keep the monster and start saving money for your next bike ! [thumbsup]

Simple solution, keep the 620 for the taxi rides, get the Sport1000 for _you!_

;)

big (or, pick up girls who already have their own bikes!)

geez why would you want to live in melbourne, it's full of Victorians, it rains all the time and the coppers book you if you are 1 or 2 kays over the speed limit. Plus they don't have any decent football teams in any code. Move to Queensland. If it's good enough for the queen......

I'm with 'ya! I checked out the all of the Sport Classics on Sat and I love all of them! The Sport actually felt more comfortable than I expected, but I'm not sure how the 'ole wrists would hold up after 100 miles or so. I still can't truly grasp how tiny the Paul Smart is!!!

AZ, when you go to Australia, do you mind if I stow away in your luggage? Or perhaps they'll let me fly with the flight attendants if you continuously refer to me as "your directory of staff." ;D

Dude, how are you gonna be a speech pathologist in a country with completely different dialect?
One of my classmates just got back from Melbourne. She went there for a few years to work after we graduated. I will be fine if I work in the hospital..typically SLP's don't work with articulation disorders in that setting. It's mostly TBI, CVA, MVA, dysphagia, etc.

She worked with articulation students in the schools and ended up coming back sounding like an Aussie after 3 years working down there.


BTW..back to the subject! Here you Paper!! These are so nice on the bike!! [thumbsup]
