Thanks Dave, enjoyed doing it. Hahaha - one in particular springs to mind when I was about 20. If it was in today's style, she'd be covered in tattoos, wearing Doc Martins and not be above sticking a nail file in your eye if you annoyed her . Super-bright and great fun but it was never going to last - I hope she had a great life. I have - have been happily married for nearly 47 years now!

Haven't been to the Wanga pub for 3 or 4 years now - stayed overnight last time. Look forward to catching up with you too!

Not so much a hate but an annoyance. I have mucked around with the position of the switch gear but can't seem to get the indicator switch where I don't have to take my hand off the bar to operate it. Thumb too short I guess.

So far the only thing I was completely annoyed with is the lack of trunk space under the pillion. I completely expected some room to place a lock or gloves or a hat or something, but I barely fit the tool bag in the vertical slot behind the front seat. The rest of the electronics don't give enough room to put a rotor lock in there. That sucks IMO. Other than that, I love the bike!
