The exposed silver on the forks is the giveaway, the standard heights have a fair bit more. With regards to the seat and the warning triangle, I have a Standard height with standard seat, if you want, considering you're fairly local to me, I could have a look at the warning light for you with motoscan and also compare notes on the seat if you're interested  :028:

That sounds like a good plan. Can I catch up with you next week when I get back from Wales?  :821: windy

Always fun reading first impressions...to this day mine was %u2018Best starting point I%u2019ve ever had with a bike%u2019...

Never had the stock seat even though mine was new didn%u2019t want it, started with the %u2018High%u2019 HP seat and about 3 seats later found the right one.

My first thought on the OP %uD83D%uDE00 %u2018What a crap time of year to buy a bike%u2019 %uD83D%uDE29

Is there a bad time to buy a bike..  :187: :027: I'll ride when I can and tinker with it when I can't..  :028:

So after 3 seats, what did you end up with?

That's funny. I think the search for the perfect seat is as elusive as the perfect windscreen.
