    Almax series IV chain and lock + tracker. You were very brave leaving it outside the gym without anything, it's a gorgeous bike with a lairy paint scheme, it'll catch the wrong eyes unfortunately.

    I use a 2m Almax at home and a 1m for work, it just fits around the front/rear wheel and to the steel bar at my work place. It's not too bad to lug about either, not compared to the 2m lump anyway :)

    It wasn't that bad. It's a monitored car park, just for the gym.

    I have an Almax that lives at work, maybe I'll get another. Which Tracker do you use?

    Ha ha, definitely one will get made... maybe I can get out and get some footage this afternoon, but I have a DPD delivery due between 3:15-4:15 (god knows when that will come) and then the light will start fading.

    Well hopefully the delivery man will be a very very nice polite man and have his magic wand or staff to hand too :p


    Edit: I don't use a tracker - if I remember right Cgrieves has one on his S1000RR and it was used to good effect to recover his bike after it was pinched. He'll be the one to ask about them :)

    "Make a video" they said...

    'Sure', I thought, 'what could go wrong' I thought...



    I'll finish putting a little something together later, but I couldn't do different angles and such, there's just not much space you can stick the GoPro that's flat in as big an area as you need.

    That's a very stranger place to mount your sat nav... doesn't it annoy you?

    It sounded great for the few seconds :D

    There should be plenty of places you can stick a mount, like so:

    Depends how much you're ok with having a gopro base attached permanently - there's loads of room on the side orange panel, or on the headlight cowl, or on the seat side panels.

    GoPros never fail to amaze me with their toughness. You're really lucky that car didn't flatten it :eek:

    I love the gold-orange paint and reservoirs. The akra is quieter than I thought. Does it still have the baffle in? Good in a way because it's not going to wake my neighbours :p

    I was wondering that. I'm not sure that it's a little quieter than the standard R I rode last week. I'll take a better look later.

    You need to de-cat it to really make it loud, I'd imagine most of the silencing is in the cat.

    BVG de-cat his and decided it was just too much.

    True but that was with one of those crazy little racefoxx cans. A decat with the akra sounds really nice.
