Very nice Chris. If only it had a little bigger front fairing it would be perfect :wink:

Have you just taken delivery of it? What are your first impressions? Did you specify the gear shift assist Pro on it?

My top recommendation for a first mod would be a mud sling, to protect your rear shock from road crud. Nippy Norman sells them.

Cheers,

Paul
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Funny enough, I was just about to say the same. :D

It looks a lovely bike Chris. Would agree with Paul about the Mudsling, you may as well go for the double pack and get the engine front cover at the same time.

Enjoy it.

997 Turbo :wink: 500hp europipe,oz race wheels upgraded front brakes, cut spec, lowered. Our eldest`s... NOT MINE.

Bike,

more importantly, a mudsling is my priority as will be something for the front end. Not got the ubercool 9t looks but essentially for two up stuff I have the wethead with 125hp on tap. All the toys bar keyless ignition.

Not ridden yet, Wales trip will be first outing. The gear assist pro must be the trickest plug and play module ever judging by the videos on you tube. Really looking forward to a long relationship with this bike. It is a totally different package, (transformed by the conventional forks and wethead lump) to the old venerable R1200R.

Incidentally I was up in Dundee this weekend on a family break and saw a geezer riding an R9t of some form by the new V@A construction site. Sounded great and looked cool too. anyone on here?

Amanda is really happy with the topbox :D It has a pad too.

Thank you Steve Parry and Chester BMW for a very, very sharp Xmas deal.

Very nice!! Brilliant reviews. The only criticism I've heard on this model is the headlight reflected back from screen.

Never said it was that Dave, "the sportiest boxer in production" I think is what I said. :wink: It has more poke than all the other wetheads. 8)
