Nice. I've got a tank bag and bash plate ( both BMW ) to fit one of them for sale
Cheers for the offer Mike, but I've got a tank bag that fits and I'll be making the bash plate :thumbup:, plus a light bar, and a crap deflector.

One thing I think I will have to buy though is a front brake cyclinder protector - one that stops the blooming thing vibrating like a demented jack in the box!

Pete - I am not trying to keep up with PhilW . . . . he's been following my lead for years :D.

Got to admit that it's been a silly year, bike wise. I sat down recently and worked out how many I've bought or sold! Nearly had to take my socks off, such is the number. Just as well I was sitting down, really :rolleyes:.

Been out on it this evening and "pushed the envelope" with regards the tyres and suspension ;). Not as planted as the 800, but that just might be the original fitment "Death-wings" that it's wearing :rolleyes:. Gearing is taking some getting used too as well - never had such a high geared bike before. Easily fixed with a set of 800 sprockets - might just start with the front one and see if that works.

Tidy looking bike Steve - verdict??
If the weather gods aren't too un-kind this weekend I'll give it a good squirt for a couple of hundered miles and get back to you with a verdict Phil :thumbup:


SteveR - Essex Girl - Me!!!!!?????

Whilst I'll admit to having a buying "problem", shoes just don't do it for me :D. Boots, on the other foot, do :rolleyes: :thumbup:

The Alp has a set of Conti Escapes ready for Galloway & winter use, so TKC's can wait. Could have done with a set on the @ last weekend though, going up some very steep grass covered hill tracks is not fun on Annakees!

Careful Steve

This could be the slippery slope to beige pants and socks with sandals !!

Unusual colour but nice too
