    yes, that's Ms. Dale or as we say on the old Nighthawk thread, SOQS.(She Of Queenly Stature)

    Soqs got two rooms of carpet and I got a motorbike. Makes saving up for a new bike much tougher.

    Added to the stable today

    Picked up this Hima today. Only did a few miles getting her home, but what a difference from the NC. The Hima feels so small and light.

    Will start the lengthy break in tomorrow.
