    I've just bought one of these



    ..still a little ambivalent about how it will look but managed to negotiate a better price than I've ever seen them advertised for so will give it a go for a bit.




    What shiny things have you just got then?

    Nice I need a new hugger for my Firestorm as the carbon one that's on there has warped. However they are all 80-90 so too much for me to be faffed about changing when I've got a wonky one on there

    I bought a Givi AirFlow for the scoot. great weather protection but at night the outer edge lights up where the reflected light goes round the beaded edge. Looks like a fecking Tron screen!

    Not bought, bidding. Longer front brake lines, fork seals and bar risers.

    Fit it with your son to show him how it's all goes together or, don't .
    Either way ,he's going round to his mates to de-restrict it the weekend after .

    They are pretty expensive for what they are, I did manage to negotiate with the maker though and managed to get it for about two thirds of what I would have paid if I'd have bought it from their own online shop.

    Its always worth asking.

    Little fecker wouldn't dare, but it ain't going to happen, my extreme skillz and cleverness with all things mechanical and electrical has sadly definitely passed him by so he'd need a mate that's clever with the spanners, and all his are poofy football or academic types.

    But doesn't really matter anyway, as I'll be de-restricting it after he's done the CBT and a couple of weeks on the road - whatever the legal position is, restricted they are downright scary dangerous...

    Not today, but I spent a massive 1.82 on a switch from China because apparently you can make, market and ship Stuff for that sort of money these days.

    Hated it:
