Cheers folks.

I picked up the bike yesterday, another black one of course. Mounters kindly threw in the first two services for free. :D

The ride home in drizzle with diesel showing on the roads wasn't much fun and I found that I was a bit wary of loosing the front end. :shock: It's to be expected I suppose, after being away for five months, and really the first time back on a bike since the day of the off. As soon as the weather lets up I'll do a few miles in to get back into the swing of things. :twisted:

First impression is that the fuelling on this bike isn't as good as the last, but early days yet.

I'm thinking of replacing the OE tyres with some Michelin PR3s, then put these back on next summer.

I'll see what deals I can get locally.

Good idea. They seem to be the current wet weather sports touring tyre. I was considering doing the same.
Worth trying the 'motorcycle tyre shop' near Pontypridd CF37 2PP tel 01443 400122 for a price.
I have found them to be previously competatively priced.
