Well went in the shop today, the bike had just finished its PDI and they had to test ride it, then it was handed over to me, luckily enough it wasn't raining at the time so I took it for a blast and WOW the throttle response on race mode and sport mode with the termi's is awesome and the popping and banging on downshift is pretty awesome, still I only done 13 miles on it so and then put it back in the shop ready to have its tail tidy fitted!! only 587 miles till I can rag the life out of it!! hahaahaha

The R&G looks good, got to decide between that and the evotech. Had the R&G on my last few bikes and every one been a pain to fit but look good when on:)

I was thinking the same color on the ASV's. Looks like it matched pretty close to the suspension color. Is it dead on when they are next to each other?

I like the pillion seat cover, the carbon fibre looks great. Was not sure it would until i checked your pics. Nice work for going a different way.

The R&G looks tidy, don't like the sound of the difficulty and time though.

Yup , picked mine up early November , only managed 400 miles so far due to our rubbish weather . Martin (top bloke) sold me mine after my 848 was totalled by a young day dreaming driver .
Ahh I remember the 848, bent the sub frame up, and smashed the steering stays?? that one?? and you might know me then I'm the one that doesn't actually work there but I'm always working on my bike out the back lol usually on saturdays!!??
