....pick up those new Formas at Byrners Suzuki in Frankston....
... zip down the other side of Frankston to Mount Eliza for that new German Bakery for some (hopefully) decent bread


Decided to finally crank up the bikes for that run.....and found the note for the new Hima 450 pre-release demos on ADV last night
https://royalenfield.com.au/product-news/himalayan-450-showroom-tour/

Might as well chuck that into the Saturday morning loop then :)
Couldn't find the bloody place for the missing signage at first, turned out to be the boldly labelled Indian shop-come-MCAS Accessories joint on Dandenong-Frankston Road.

What an absolute CRACKER at A$9k ride-away :clap: :clap: :2thumbs-up:
USD forks, Stainless exhaust all through, 20mm seat height adjustment (plus multiple aftermarket seats, still lower/ Gel/scooped/whatever), screen, bashplate, ctr.stand, 3 ride modes, switchable ABS etc, full in-dash GPS, accessory power sockets, wire 21/17 wheels, rear rack, full LED lights....the list just goes on and on.


$$$???
A STUMPING a$9k ride-away!!
(9.5k in twin-colour paint and sticker-grafix liveries)

For those who don't like the weight of the front top-cage....just unbolt and get some crashbars instead. Plastic factory skid plate + exhaust header guard....junk all that for a one-piece alloy bashplate @$190
Loads of accessories on their way, selling from April '24.

That sounds as if the new Himalayan 450 found a new lover. But wait until you driven it, perhaps then there is water in the wine.
I once bought one of the last BULLET TRIALS that were ready to register in Germany because EU-emission standards went up. Thought I would buy a nice new oldtimer. Sold it after 4 weeks, it was obvious we would not become a loving couple.

If I was a an XT250 at your place Pete, I would be afraid, very afraid ;)
Right you are, he is already caculating the kgs.

Wasn't that a re-painted Bullet500?

That 450 Hima has a few decades of development and improvement on that Bullet....can't compare an old R60 with an R1200.

It even got the right ergos (the 411 didn't quite get there)
