Hi,
I'm hopefully getting one, just need to see one in the flesh first but my stockist is miles away,the Burner and 5 Spot have a data base so i thought the Flux should too.
So come on, don't be shy, you know you want to, pics would be good also.

Hey TxDirtDawg, it looks like your Blue Russian is about to Christen your back tire with a little "territory juice."

I know after I bring my bike in from a ride, it always gets the full smell inspection from my cats. Thankfully, it hasn't been peed on yet.
