The beast turns 50
Yesterday at about 4:30 pm the beast clocked over 50,000 km.
I am getting worried.....
It doesn't eat oil.
It gets pretty good mileage.
The brakes are really good and have no knock off or fade.
It doesn't rattle.
The paint and fitting is good (well there ARE stone chips)
The tyres seem to last pretty well.
It still does well over 200 km/h and blows away the odd commy or ricer. (not on the road of course)
It still feels tight and "new" (and I drive the odd new one)
I have, however, had my first warranty claim. I was cleaning the mags and noticed a bad mark on one of them. I showed the dealer. He gave me a new one, changed the tyre and balanced it. Took about 30 mins, no charge.
Maybe, just maybe, I bought a REALLY GREAT CAR.......
Here is wisdom.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the BEAST:
for it is the number of a F6 Typhoon; and its number is 0217.
