Nice! Don't forget to get some pics :)

I had something similar a few years ago, it was going well until I overdid it on a corner and spun a porsche gt2 off the track... The instructor was not impressed!

Oh no... not only.
Look what Santa gave me...

An ANWB (Dutch AA) road services sidecar-combo.
It is a 70 years anniversary model of the BSA, one of the very first bikes they used as 'service cars'.
It all started in the year 1946 with seven Harley Davidsons Liberator with sidecars.

Me very happy ! :mrgreen:

I already have some road services combos.
4 from NL (the latest included; the one in front), 1 (on the right for the viewer) from the German 'Strassenwacht'.
And 3 of them have the sidecar on the left (GB's AA), one of which is an ancient 'Matchbox' model.
The smallest is just 1,5 cm.

Quite impressed with the Sena 20s.

Good sound and voice quality. Bit of a unit on the side of the helmet though.

That covers about all the stuff I desired, fits or works. If it wasn't for me giving me presents this would be an odious time of year.

I've only started playing recently but can't wait until I can appreciate a guitar like that, looks gorgeous, I hope to have an LP one day, alongside a US Strat(which will probably be first) but for now I'm trying to get my head around chord progressions.
