    It's top of my list, it checks all the boxes except that it's ugly compared to the 390/1290.

    Got the Hornet MOTed, just an advisory on the front tyre :) She is a reliable beast, battery was not really happy after 2 weeks of no use in the cold though!

    The baby blade is just waiting for the floor to dry, and boards to cover the walls in its new home before it can be moved out of the cold garage! Then I can slide in the new motor!

    Not sure if its official ridge or knock off.

    It's ok getting carda out is fairly easy if you've got strong fingers the hinge side the aluminium cases are tapered so you can pinch it and make the sides and carda aplay open a few degrees.

    Get a Stealth wallet instead, much easier in my opinion.

    First ride out of 2020 today. Actually really good - cold but no salt and good grip in the dry when the sun came out. Got just over 100 miles in, which felt enough to get the new brakes and chain bedded in.

    What the idea of having screens fitted to the hand guards :confused:
    Is it so you're hands can see where there going :p

    Yeah, that'll be why. Very good.

    Or, alternatively, it'll be to correct the woeful effort originally made by BMW so that you have enough protection for sitting on the bike for 10+ hours a day.
