New member from The Rhubarb Triangle

Welcome along from an ex Stradale owner. Check with the dealer/owner of the bike, originally it would have come with a tender/charger.

Enjoy, they are a cracking bike.

Turn in will feel a bit slower on the dragster because of the 200 rear tyre but other than that they are a hoot to ride

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but apart from the addition of ABS, I think the F3 800 is unchanged since it's introduction in 2013? Good luck in your search :)
