I had looked about 7 years ago but life got in the way and due to one thing or another it never seem to come together. Well last week I was over at Heindl and after talking to them and looking I got a price and then hit up my CU, they said yes...want a check now? So I called the guys at Heindl and told them to put a sold sign on the Burgundy Patrol they have coming in as I'll be over to get them some cash on it.

It'll be a bit different for me, I've been on 2 wheels for close to 50 years but I'm here to learn. I have The Side car Book and a couple of large parking lots close by. And having been a firefighter I believe in ATGATT, and being a bit older I don't bounce , likely shatter, so I check my ego at the door when I leave home. Looking forward to the ride home, about 65 miles but I've laid out a course, all back farm roads, that has as few turns and as light of traffic as I could and I plan to get John or David in the chair to teach me a bit, after all they sold it to me. :P   If I'm not comfortable enough to ride home I'll have them deliver it. Better safe than sorry I say.
