Took awhile but here's a photo of the B&Q

Post  past-it on Tue Apr 17 2012, 18:29



The only photo with the bike clean that I could find, another Red/Black/White Cat in the backround. And the R1 in the middle, the usual riding buddies.

Great picture - a Yamaha day out!

Still think the B&Q colours are the best Very Happy

I see you have a Baglux fitted. How do you rate them? Just got one myself and I'm not impressed grumpy

Nice colours, very similar to the one I nearly bought but the stealers wanted £2000 for it and offered me less than £400 for a 6 month old bike they sold for £1400 and wouldn't negotiate on price. That colour scheme sold me on the cat though.

Incidentally the stealers still haven't sold that thundercat Smile nearly 6 months on

I bought the bike as it is in the photo except for the downpipes, can, heated grips and front mudflap(by the way it no longer looks like that, broke the front mudguard, disc lock as usual, someone else moved the bike) As for the baglux, I'm in two minds, the orginal tank is in top condition but the cover has suffered in the winter riding and I can't get it clean now. But you can strap loads of things to the tank, other than a magnetic tank bag which defeats the object of a magnetic bag. As for repainting the mudguard the price of the paint is a real reason for fitting a after market one. On the other hand I must admit the orange does clean up well and even with the miles its done the bike looks ok for its age. I've ordered rear caliper seals so I'll give the bike a spring clean and take all the fairings off as well while I'm doing the brakes.

It was his wifes birthday and like all true friends I thought it would be a good idea to stop off in Hein Gericke, when he had to pay for the unexpected present I almost dailed 999, In the picture I think he was trying to find either the jump leads to restart his heart or the regulator on the oxygen bottle, it was hard to tell through the tears (of laughter), I don't think he's truly forgiven me to this day.
