Well I'm still recovering and the fact that I had a Heartattack 4 weeks ago in addition to the Stroke,put a slight spanner in the works. iI was not allowed to drive or ride for another month.

Am chuffed to see that Woody managed to get prizes with my previous SDR. At the Crashfest.

However I am even more happy that the Duke III has passed it's MOT and I was able to ride it this morning.

I took it for a ride along the coast road and by Muirfield where the British Open Golf Championship is taking place. Sure you would hear the Bark of the Akro on the TVcoverage? All the attending Police officers seemed to have had their attention grabbed anyways. :lol:

Nice to be back to being a Fanny 8) .

Well? Being "A Fanny" Indeed.(Subjective) I am thinking now, that the 690 Duke III is more of the "Hooligan" ethic than the 990 ever could.

The trouble you can get yourself into with this bike is wayyyyy beyond what you could attempt on an SD.

The SD. Well? you may Piss Off some Superbike riders. The Duke pisses off every clint.( Cars, bikes, ambulances, Police. Am sure I F*cked off a Lifeboat the other day. :mrgreen:(Joke?)

See all those "Dangerous/Over Policed/Traffic calmed roads." That's, what this bike was built for. Every day fun, without the "Big bike hassle".
