    I've just got back from a week in Fronch.

    90% of all the bikes I saw were Harleys, most of them fully dressed tourers. Passed quite a few HD dealers too.

    This time last year every bike I saw was a GS.

    A mate's Mrs bought a Harley 750 this week as well, it's the Chinese year of the tractor presumably?

    Hers has a chuffin great rad at the front of the bike so must be the new type engines I heard about.

    It looks a bit like a piece of military hardware, I'm not sure whether I like the look of it or not, you obviously do, which is all that matters.
    Officially it's grey, but it does look rather green in real life

    I'm not sure whether I like the looks or not, but it does look better than every other Harley I've seen, it looks a lot, lot, more finished.

    One of the few bikes you can get the numberplate dragging. Enjoy! Bit different from a MT or XSR tho.

    Woot.

    A PPI complaint has been upheld so I can start buying bits for it and not have to wait on the rest of my insurance pay out which is likely to drag on for months
