Nice one! I'm sure that you're well pleased with it, and you should be - great bikes and the quick shifter is probably the best addition for these ever.


I'll keep my eyes open for you around Hampshire.

I went out for my first little ride today (only did about 30 miles) and I was loving it, I'm meant to be keeping it under 5k revs whilst running it in but couldn't help it a few times and had to hear the triple roar.


My o my though the standard mirrors are awful, I found myself moving around a lot to be able to see what was behind me and it was taking my eyes off the road for those extra seconds that has convinced me already I need to replace them with something else.

Thanks for the invite, the wife is away this weekend and I only managed to get out today for an hour whilst my daughter was at a kids party so unfortunately I'm not going to make it.


I'm off work Tuesday so hopefully going out again then

It's on the shopping list when I change bikes, they are lovely! Don't know how you hung on without a bike. I was straight out shopping when I passed my test. Enjoy!

 

Ha ha, I bought mine about 6 weeks before my test. Just had to have it waiting for me when I passed.

I was popping about on a Vespa LX125 and doing the bike training under the guise of "I need more road training, I will be safer".

God it hurt getting off that 650 onto the 125 to go home.. but it was great being rid of L's.

Patience paid off, hello proper bike!
