Finally got the bike yesterday!  That's the good news



The bad news is that after the bike was delivered and the salesman had left (it was a Sunday and he was working out of hours - he wasn't hanging about and I can't blame him), I noticed a little scratch and a dull patch in the paint/laquer on the fuel tank.

The shop is closed on a Monday too so I'm waiting for a response.

Not even ridden it yet!  I spent yesterday fitting a few of my bolt-ons.  Now I'm working away for a couple of days worse luck.  Can't wait to get back to the bike  :001:

Glad it's arrived, look forward to a few vids and perhaps running in to each other - not literary of course  :001:

Hey Trythat,

I took the lazy route when it came to the RRG rad guard... firstly, I pushed the safety wire in from behind and tied them together at the front of the rad - that was for the bottom corners.  Like you said it's impossible to get behind the top of the rad for the top corners without taking some bits off.... I didn't have time for all that so I've screwed a nut onto the bottom of a cable clip that pokes through from above the rad at the top-middle.  The rad is a snug fit so together with the safety wire at the bottom the rad should not be able to get past that nut  :152:
