New member. Old SP1. Older bloke

G'day from the Central West of NSW Australia.
I ordered my SP1 from the local Honda dealer about 18 years ago then had to wait months for it to be shipped.
We've clocked up over 80,000ks but she's been rested since the last run to Phillip Island in 2014. The roads are so rough around these parts that the left radiator succumbed yet again and the front fairing mounting points cracked. The steering head bearings are again feeling very second hand and I'm overdue for shocker fluid changes.
Add in the ever increasing rego costs and some other bikes to ride, has seen her rested in the back of the shed.
But if I can sell my KTM 990 Super Duke R, it has come time for a minor makeover and put her back on the road.
