Hello from the midlands
« on: December 21, 2017, 11:16:43 AM »
Hi all, new to the forum. Bought a 65plate xr a few weeks ago, weather and time has not even allowed me to get a ride on it yet 😕
 Roll on spring.
Fitted a Shad panniers and topbox this week along with an evotech tail tidy and the locking sat nav mount. Will be after a HP seat and new tail pipe next 😎

Cheers fellas, I will get a few pics up tomorrow and the tail tidy was pretty simple. Got it for a good price too

Price? Where from? 7” by 5” plate to? Nice small but not too small plate!

7 x 5 is about as small as I would chance.

If you get done for it - there will be bigger issues with Plod, I suspect.

Not ordered the plate yet tbh. Tail tidy was ordered from Knee Down Midlands with a 15% discount worked out to £144 with free delivery. I ordered it Saturday and it was delivered Tuesday.
