None of these seem to be quite as YELLOW as mine, I understand it's a marmite thing but I like it and have never bought bikes or rode them for the approval of others. At least people will see me coming and the insects love it too, what's not to like ?

Looks nice! I like the yellow, I never understood why they dropped it.

Spent the weekend fiddling and adding my bits and bobs, fitted a Thunderbox for easy install of any future add-ons. Fitted dash cam cameras front and back wired into bike, SAE socket under seat for battery tender in the winter. USB fitted up front in ready made hole, gear indicator on the other side and a GPS mount above clocks. Also fitted the Boosterlpug to tame the bike a little, quite impressed with that, it doesn't completely eliminate the throttle issue but I'd say it cures about 75% of it (much smoother) gear changes are also less clunky and the biggest benefit for me is the engine braking has a much less anchor/parachute element to it, was a bit like riding the Buckaroo pony before. Just waiting on frame sliders now then I'm done, until someone puts an earworm in place and I realize I can't live without something that I don't even know I need right now.

Nothing to beat a good aftermarket centre-stand. You can do lots easily with it which would be a right PITA without!
