Back at Haywards for its first (300 miles) service yesterday - I can do 50-55 mph now. :)

20 bhp of utterly charming, smile-inducing joy.

All the best

It's a delightful little thing - took various bikes out on test rides, nothing of any significance performance-wise (Speed Twin 900 was the most powerful) but none made me smile in the way the 350 does. Within their own niche, RE are knocking it out of the park at the moment.

Welcome back to the world of two wheels with an engine Richard.

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.
