Well today's the day i get the bike, have to go to the registration office to get it registered to me, then its mine :)
Spent the last few days getting used to KL.

Friday i went to the shop and had a look at 3 bikes he had there that fitted the bill. Wanted a second hand EX-5 with carb not FI.

Saturday it pissed down all day so i didn't end up doing much, just mooched around the local area.

Sunday was a lot better so i decided to take a train trip to the outskirts of KL to the Batu Caves.

When we were there last year, a bloody rock dislodged itself from high up in the cave and missed me by a couple of feet. Peopke around me were nodding in acknowledgement of my escape with death. My wife took a photo of me and twas only afterwards we spotted there were two monkeys shag**ng in the background.
I've still got the rock.
