    I reckon lighter coloured (orange or gold as relevant ) wheels would set it off nicely too.
    Lol, you bad man.
    Although he's probably daft enough to do it

    I vote for orange, but am not sure with the orange frame.

    In the event you dont go for that, then its white (for no reason other than its makes the bike look even lighter to me)

    Just been out for an hour on the 690... If you're already now sitting there thinking "seen all this before.." then you may as well jump out of the topic, because yes, it's the same.

    Best bike ever.. Hell yes...
    Any regrets.... Well, only the fact i sold it in the first place.

    Took mostly the roads i know pretty well, first time on the bike in 4 months+ and the roads still had some damp bits on them, so wasn't exactly walloping it and sticking my knee down. But DAMN there's a lot of fun to be had on a motorbike, you (well me anyway) soon forget just the power and grunt they're capable of with ease... Gear, gear, pinned, pinned... more gears, more pinned.... Just great stuff.

    I had a lot of questions on the ride to ask myself "what mods does it need?"

    The list was
    1. Puig screen for trackdays
    2. Evotech radiator guard
    3. Leo Vince exhaust
    4. Wilbers/Nitron rear shock.
    5. Kevs O2 sensor mod

    It's now
    1. Puig screen for trackdays - Maybe
    2. Evotech radiator guard - Yes
    3. Leo Vince exhaust - No
    4. Wilbers/Nitron rear shock. - YES
    5. Kevs O2 sensor mod -No

    The bike does get a bit weavy due to the soft back end, more so than i recall/remember with the stock shock. But apart from that, it's just great.

    Really good to hear this. I just about cleaned the winter dirt off my tyre on the ride home, just a tiny chicken strip left.... It is just great fun!

    Do it in white, with some orange bling - it's really the only bike you can bling up and it looks good.
    I'm going to have to get one at some point, I might have a look what's around.

    How much does a decent one cost in the UK?
