Perfect afternoon here, just did a 60 mile loop, what a bike! It really is a weapon but with such a comfortable riding position. Iím 5í8Ē and with the bar risers pulling the bars back slightly itís near on perfect.

I've spent the week making it my own, I've removed the rim tape (a pet hate of mine) and replaced a couple of non-standard fastenings with genuine BMW replacements, last job is to replace a scratched decal on the RHS and it's then all done. Lovely weekend so this afternoon,  I detailed it, lubed the chain and checked the tyre pressures ready for some more miles and smiles!

I'm so pleased I waited for a Frozen Dark Blue bike to come along, I love the colour

Great ride out this morning, met some mates for a bacon roll in Bibury, I ended up doing just over 100 miles, bike was faultless even in a couple of downpours.

Iíve now finished making it my own, Iíve replaced the scratched decal, all the non standard fasteners that the previous owner managed to lose and also replaced the horrible blinged up oil filler cap which needed a spanner to remove. Delighted with the bike, the riding position suits me perfectly, the handling and brakes are spot on and apart from being slightly over geared in 6th itís near enough perfect.

I also managed to pick up a H&B rack and expander plate off a mate of mine today for £100. Iíll code a spare barrel so it can be popped on and off the bike when I need it using the same key.
