I will give it some time Paul and see what's best to do. The plate may have to be moved around the back wheel and I may have to lower the pegs.

I will get one of the "old style" Monza fuel caps and the obligatory assortment of crash bungs but other then that, I think I will just get some miles on her this summer and she how she feels.

She could probably benefit with the Cat being removed and a set of straight through headers going on but that would result in her needing to be Dyno'd and set up properly again. Hilltop are a long way from me but it may be worth it.

The bike feels small compared to the Mamola (and obviously the GSA too) but it is a very different type of machine and I am looking forward to having that cracking engine in a much smaller and lighter package (albeit with my same frame on top). :)

That is nice, but not a standard paint job me thinks.

factory custom .... as contradictory as that sounds :D that's a "standard" option, the blue (also available as green, red or yellow) is holographic and incredible "in the flesh"

Steve, when you say "holographic" is that marketing speak for "a bit sparkly"? [smilie=hmm.gif]
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.

You need to see it in the flesh, not exactly my thing but it's stunning, we saw them at the bike show and didn't believe that they were a "standard" paint scheme !

Actually I think it means "Girlie" It would also benefit from the 125hp LC lump in it (from the sportiest roadster) :wink:

No, there's a "depth" to the patterns in the paint that "moves" as you look at it from different points, awesomely well done.

We have the blue and the green in the showroom now, just waiting for the yellow and red.

The green is even nicer in the flesh.

By the way Leaksy, your R Nine T looks great, they're a real hoot to ride, really puts the "fun" back into bikes :)

That's lovely. If only the forks were black rather than the tacky gold.

The forks were thrown in from another BMW bike (I think the S1000RR); however I think that black forks are available on the scrambler version.
