Enjoy the new machine Tez.

I look forward to your thoughts once the "honeymoon" period has passed (especially on the motor & gearbox). Though I must admit, strangely, I still appear to be in mine some 10 months down the line . . . Never had that happen with any other bike before ponder left thumb up

Surely you must know someone with a camera, computer skills and who would be able to put up a picture without trying to take the piss.
Even I managed 2 out of 3.

Enjoy the new steed Tez.

Lots of love

Must be torture having the new bike & not being able to have a little go. Lots of salt down though anyway!

If your waiting to avoid salt and wet weather then I'd expect to see you on the road for a week in July.... if your lucky haha
I have to say you have immensely more patience and self control than me. I'd have been out on it before it got into my garage lol

Well, got out on it Friday and today, was a little apprehensive at first as I haven't ridden for over 5 months, but within 5 miles it all came flooding back. The accuracy of the steering is amazing after the Honda, and whilst I had the CBF I thought that it was fine. This device is in a different league though, and the brakes, bloody ell definite brick wall quality. Only slight downside is the suspension is a little on the harsh side, but its very early days yet and it might ease off with more miles (and I might get a bit more used to it) and of course I can always back it off a little. Riding position is a little on the sporty side of what I'm used to, but I think I'll probably adapt to it, all in all I'm one happy old git.
