Hi guys, thanks for the welcome.
I've tried to put up some photo's but the Gallery won't accept my username :( , for the moment.
@Wassers - I was offered a trade-in too good to miss against my ST3s AND my Guzzi Norge 1200. As the Guzzi was used all the time 2-up I hardly ever used the ST3s although I liked them both a lot, so began to think about moving on. Had them both for 5yrs. Put the ST3s in for bi-annual belt change just over a week ago and was given the 950s 1yr old,1 owner with 5k miles and for sale as a courtesy bike for a day. I was so impressed, better than anything I have ever ridden and the Guzzi was always a bit of an Elephant at low speeds/in town loaded and 2-up so that was that. Big leap into the 21st century Edit inserts omission - bought it from Carentan Moto, Carentan, Normandy.
