Most definitely not, construction industry all my working life..initials & DOB..

Wasn’t really looking to buy a new bike, I was happy with my 950 but the Mrs passed her test recently so I bought her a Himalayan (she’s a short ass, so flat feet was a confidence thing) she loves it and was looking to do longer trips, Scotland at Easter & 10days in Europe in the summer, the old 950 was showing her age and I’d be manly using it for the trails in the summer...I have a EXC 500 with rally kit, cush drive, rear tank etc for the fun stuff..anyway, happened to be in AMS and they had the last of the 2019 Adventures at a knock down price, sat down with James and came up with a decent deal...790 Adv £9300, £2500 for my 950 and set of Touratech panniers for £500.
Added a few extras, as you do, Quickshifter, heated grips, cruise control (never had that on a bike before) and of course one of Mr Akrapovic’s finest...Paul
