first proper clean
« on: August 29, 2015, 01:23:15 PM »
Gave it a good clean after the Dales run where it did get filthy

Someone described it as a weaponised GS



You tell me how fast I was going Officer !

I couldn't believe my luck when i saw it on the DVLA website

I just need to decide how illegal to make it so that it looks what it should  :001:

Could try without the huge plastic shovel on the back!

The Australian Regs were changed recently so we don't get forced to have that wide section of guard under the number plate.

On my last bike it fell off (when I undid the bolts!) and I could not get it back on...

I took that hideous lump of plastic off within 10 minutes of the bike arriving at my house!  :008:

It looks so much better without it.
