Sorry, I neerly forgot to post up a pic...

Well...here she is... the day I picked it up...Top box and some other "accessories" will be fitted soon. If you look closely you can see the little "titties" still on the tyres... at this point she has ~35km on the ODO..

Cheers,
Smithy

Yeah...they call it a "matte" finish...but I think it's more of a "satin" finish...has just a hint of shine to it..

At least I don't have to polish it..! :152:
