    Ha. Well, it will be warm and clean this winter so you can sort out all the little bits and sort out that white backed numberplate.....

    I've got a little light adjustment tool that'll fix the 'hump' in the tank. I call it a sledgehammer.

    Just kidding. Obviously.

    Right, so what is it? What makes it special? I'm so out of touch with new bikes I don't know anything about it.

    Not sure you can use the same numberplate mate, they are kinda unique.

    Sweet!

    The bike, not you..

    ok you are a bit

    I did very much like the 790 when I test rode it, seemed to have to change gear an awful lot though - up and down, up and down all the time. But it's sooo much lighter and easier to paddle about than the 1290 SDR which I am finding a bit of a pain in the wheeling out of garage, parking/unparking department. I'm thinking of letting the oh take over the SDR and me getting a 790

    Carbs and fuel stuff were indeed one of the major things playing on my mind... I blame Cheb for that.... This obviously removes the whole Carbs thing from the disussions nicely.
