Probably that's a good idea, you might just 'win' another point if you posted the pictures.

Perhaps if you post some pictures of what you've done the nice chaps on here can assist in helping you put right what you've "made bad" Smile

Just a thought Tom?

Hi, I can't help but ask the question why did you buy a bike that in your own words is 'so bad' when you had a decent payout for your old bike?
Post us some close up pics mate & we will see what advice we can give ponder

If it was about dream bikes Tom I'd be riding a custom built Bimota [img]TomCom Project  - Page 2 Www_motojpg_ru-232[/img]
It is about getting what you can afford and be happy with it and do what you can to make it the best it can be.

I love my cat but there are people with better looking ones, younger ones etc etc, mine just aspires to be the best little mistress it can be, nothing more nothing less Smile

Took me twenty years to afford a bike that I could even class as a 'dream' bike, good things come to those who wait (and work)

That has always been a concern I've had of the flush mounted indicators. The originals might look big and ugly to some, but at least they can be seen.

Maybe look at the mirrors with indicators built in. Sort out 2 problems in 1 go.

I got big American ones from Suzi (ezzy's mum) when I fell off trying to cuddle a rabbit.

I think the micro ones and tail tidy ones are hard to see albeit I can see that they might be more aesthetically pleasing to look at.
Safety first though ?!?

Mirror with built in is a good compromise as the standard ones only seem to allow you to look at your elbows. Yzfjohn (manor69) boughs some fitted.

Depends if the colour is metalic (base coat and then clear coat) or solid colour IE black,red,white... although they can be two stage colours aswell.

If its a metalic colour then you will ned to laquer over the top ;0)

Don't talk to me about divorced costs! I could have bought both of us one each Ellie and probably a few spare!
However like the Murphy's I'm not bitter.
