Very nice! 8-)

I was seriously considering a Himalayan last year before I got ill.

The seat puts too much pressure in the wrong place now, which is a bummer as OnTheWheel near me have just become RE dealers. :roll:

They are a crackin' bike by all accounts. Is this an addition or a replacement for a previous DD steed? 8-)

Well Jel' :lol:
Very much like the model and do keep drifting back to it as the preferred RE when browsing.

Sensible money too

First fuel injected petrol bike I have ever had, keep looking for the choke.

Never had ABS before either.

very nice Dave, although for me it would have been the Constellation

Couple of questions: -

Whats left the fleet to make room for this one

Retirement package must be strong

How did you convince the Mrs you really needed another bike

Sid brought his to Matlock. He was very pleased with how it went and said it was very competent on the byways. More competent than the rider - who rode it into a rock and broke it a little... :?

Harley's gone

So - So, but want to do these things whilst still reasonably fit and able.

What makes you think I ever ask.......

And I suppose that fact she's not hard on the eyes makes 'no never mind' to you Dave....

Really! I expected more from a man of your advanced years.
