First Bike over 125cc

Well, it took a lot longer than was planned but finally graduated and very happy with my purchase I am too.

Can't say it's 'never seen rain' as it pissed it down on the way home.

Also, it dropped off the side stand as I put it on the drive.....fortunately I caught it half way down.

Oh, and the rack has already been switched for the seat cowl. Will probably put the smaller screen back on and remove the bar risers too when I get the chance.

Okay, it's not brand spanking or a patch on many bikes, but it's in cracking nick and more importantly....

....it's mine.

She's a real beauty and no slouch. Now

get out and practice breaking at high speed. Make sure the first time you HAVE to hit the breaks at the ton, isn't the first time you've ever hit the breaks at the ton


(am I making sense :unsure: )

Nice one Rosey

I would deffo advise a pair of crash mushrooms though.

 Once got off the bike thinking I had  put the sidestand down! They saved the day and some very expensive plastics.

Managed to pick it up ( only because i seen two lads walking towards me) with battered pride adrenalin. Ached the next day. :winkie:
