Yeah, I took it outside to show a mate and it rained. Brought it in swiftly afterwards and used the 'no water' cleaning technique :)

@Nito that is stunning. I have been debating one of those for a long time:cool: They make beautiful pieces and not so beautiful prices as I know having bought lots of theirs🤣

Put a new set of Bridgestone BT 31's on my TVL scrubbed them in on a track evening. Got to say what a difference to the way the TVL handles. The tip in and how tight a line the bike keeps now is like night and day. And that is in comparison to when the original tyres were almost new and tried on a track day. I had been impressed how good the Scorpions were but now I wish I had thrown them away many miles ago😁

Hi Paul, I had difficulty justifying the price to myself, up until I received it :) it’s hard not to appreciate the quality of workmanship that goes into it.

Plus it’s a tactile piece which you engage with everytime you take the bike out!! 👍

It should also nicey reduce the angle of lean to a more acceptable level because the stock stand freaks me out a bit!!

Bike had its first service! A bit mad as I only bought it last week.

Loving it. Well, hurting my hands and shoulders so will get it set-up better but, other than that, W I C K E D.
Real emotional ride.

Anyway, whilst it was there - no issues - I took along a new Rad/Oil guard I had delivered.
I got the RadGuard one, from Australia, thanks to somebody mentioning it on here, forgotten who.
I got it because of the looks even though I could have the R&G for free. Very happy.

Mine worried me as I found that the bike didn't have enough lean angle at times, I had to look to make sure the ground was very level, or sloping down on the stand side. On one occasion it actually got me stuck.
It is a beautiful bit of kit, but a bit to long imho.
