History
With my K6 permanently out of commission, I was looking for another bike
This one had alluded my a few weeks prior before getting a new bike became a necessity, but by accident came across her on a non-specific search since she was wrongly listed

7500km on the clock (4700 miles), Showroom condition, I had to have her!

...and now I do
