When I first came to Katanning and went to introduce myself to Pep, now my motorcycle mechanic, I saw he had a beautiful Red VStar 1100 Custom for sale in his shop. He spent quite a bit of time trying to sell it to me. He pretty much convinced me I would be much happier on it than on the one I have. And I am happy enough on that.
He wanted $8k, which is what I paid for the 650, but only offered me $5k for mine. I was loathe to throw 3k away like that, so I did not buy. Today I met the chap who did. We had a chat and it looks as if my idea of starting a rider’s club may have some supporters. In any case I have met another someone who wants a friend to ride with. He was quite impressed when I mentioned my upcoming odyssey.
