She's sure looking lovely now Joe - in fact she's one of the finest looking BLUE's I've seen............the Buell blinkers make her look a bit like a Kwaka from the rear.............can't wait to hear her..................fancy a little 50 mile swapsie on the way down to Spain???

Oh yeah, forgot to mention; removed slow centre stand, polished heel plates and fitted gold rear sprocket nuts and Jaws titanium hero blobs (otherwise known as Tittys); they spark up just fine. Pending receipt of replacement titanium brake calliper mounting bolts. Thing is, since I attached the red thing I'm unable to go anywhere :}

LOL @ cyclops. Sounds about righty mate.

What happens to that zorst system come M.O.T. time ?

If I was keeping the bike for 3 years it wouldn't be a problem as it's a case of "not what you know, but who ya know".

However, I keep my bikes no longer than 2 years as I do approx 10k miles a year. So, due to all the possers out there (who do no more than 4k miles a year and thus lower expected annual mileages) if I kept my bike longer than 2 years the depreciation would be ridiculous. As a result, I will probably sell the bike in July when I return from the Catalunya GP trip :yo:
