Hi from Western Australia

Postby WA Duke » Wed Jun 07, 2006 3:39 am

Hi All

I Just found you site last week and it's a great resource for a Duke owner.

I live in Perth WA and picked up my new duke about a month ago, Orange tank with the seat and all other plastic changed to black by the dealer at no extra cost. the only problems I've had is a dead battery the first week, the dealer sent a mechanic out to my house to fit a new one the same day. I've just clocked 1000km and have booked it in next week for its first service and fit and map of the Akra slipons also going to fit a 16t sprocket as it seems to be well recomended by a lot of riders on this site.

This the 11th bike, 4th big road bike that I've owned, and the best handling most fun bike I've ever ridden :D Im looking forward to a long relationship with this beast.

I'll post some picks when I get it back for the dealer.

Cheers

Pete

HI WA Duke,
I've done the same thing with my Duke. Have Orange bike with a black gel seat fitted, very nice & a friend has made me some awesome oggy knobs. Handle bar end weights, front & rear axles and tank protection. He is on the Gold Coast if you want a contact. I also have soft cock heated hand grips and aren't all my mates envious at the moment. Oh also just got the Akras this week. A guy on the Sunshine Coast crashed his bike and I got his for $1000 - score - unmarked!
Have fun.

You Euro guys call em crash bungs, here in Oz, we have a company called oggy knobs, so we call all crash bungs, oggy knobs, majority of ppl know what we are talking about then. Lady duke definately said soft cock heated hand grips, cause she is a soft cock, just kidding, :D
