Nice looking machine. Glad to hear you're changing the can as that one looks, well let's say, unsuited to the bike. Enjoy her mate.

Squadron Nero - Yes their Mivv X-Cones not my choice as they came with the Bike, been trying to find some replacements for a while. 

IanG - 4 of us did a tour early in October and was great fun, will probably stay around Barmouth again and do trips up and around Snowdon, may do a bit of Anglesey this time as well Smile

Hi my friend beautiful bike Thumbs UpClap(maybe i'm a little biased as i have the same model)
You have done quite a job to your beauty.
Just ad a set of forged oz wheels and you are near perfect.
She will be 100% perfect with a 1060 or 1102 kitWinkBig smile

Very tasty and decent mods. Looks like a well sorted ape. I recently went from a standard rsvr to a factory and the wheels and brakes make a massive difference.

Thanks guys, been out for another 150 miles on it today and it's just so easy to ride now much more torque, I can be a proper lazy bugger

While I was up at AP Griff was trying to get me to go down the 1060 route but I'm pretty happy with the power it's got now. Maybe next year lol
