Ok guys , thanks for the help in deciding.

Welcome to the Red side Lighty, I'm suppressed you did not go to Pidcocks.
After over thirty years behind the bars, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.

Picked up my new bike today & christened it by riding 165 miles back to Derbyshire, chasing my son most of the way in the Nomad.
I love the bike, it's better than I imagined, can't wait to get the rev limiter raised .
Lind Motorad in Norwich were great & I got a full tank of fuel which helps when in a strange place, didn't get all the way back, but prob would have just made it.
