That does look nice!, also big improvement on the front mud guard/fender for the Gen 2.

I did test ride the Gen-2 when it first came out....wasn't real impressed...although it did have some nice touches, I did like the TFT and the quickshift is better than the Gen-1...but performance wise it just wasn't there, it just felt soft and neutered compared to my highly modified Gen-1.

Like Winger, I've done a lot of modifications to mine and spent way too much money on it.... and have it just how I want it...for now it's fine until I feel the urge to update.

Be careful when ordering from Europe, you will be expected to pay import and VAT on most items, this is being collected by the courier companies and Royal mail on behalf of the government before they will release goods to you. As an example a lady was charged £82 on a £200 coat from Europe !!!! ( source BBC News).

The import duty is a nightmare - from the states too, I recently received just over $1000 worth but luckily the company enclosed an invoice for $200 which was very nice of them, with that I still had to pay £56!......so you can imagine what it would have been?
