    Thats a good looking bike you have there. From the pictures, it looks good in both white or yellow.

    New F.Fabbri screen :)

    New rear Corsa 3, after a thorough scrubbing the day before :D

    Shame shes poorly now - headlights not working atm, no 'running' lights (only the little side ones) and no high beam, although oddly I can flash those bulbs using the 'pass' :confused: No blown fuses and I replaced the bulbs, so a trip to the dealers this week I think, hopefully a warranty job as is may be a relay/main switch...

    Brings back memories very popular colour scheme and decals for the RD400 never owned one but did have a RD 250 lovely especially when it hit the power band mm and the smell of a 2 stroke first thing in the morning :D

    Couple of pics before I went out on Saturday afternoon. Was fitting my Akra exhaust back on after getting it MOT'd the other day with the massive standard can on!

    Yellow on the wheels doesn't suit it.

    Haha, the one dividing bit!

    Most love it and i think it looks better than nothing, did toy with the idea of either whit trim or tyre pen, dont want to leave the wheels just black.

    Yeah, it certainly is a bit of a "dustbin" the standard can, eh?. Mine ages ago with the standard Ape can on it :-

    My MoT guy allows me to keep the Renegade system on mine fitted when he tests it with the stipulation however, that I fit the BS stamped baffles to it. :cool:

    I can imagine fitting twin cans and the headers on every time would get annoying! :p . Mine is only 2 springs and a single nut & bolt so I don't mind :) . Was great to get back out on it with some nice weather! I forgot how fast 120mph+ feels :D .

    The Renegades are a bit of a pain to refit so yeah, I'm glad my spanner monkey is happy to test it with them fitted. I only ever use the baffles once a year at MoT time mind, the rest of the time they sit in a box and gather dust. :D

    Your Ape is looking sharp btw. :cool:

    im so glad my local MOT place isnt that bothered, they just make you push it into to the garage and testing area. Good job as changing the exhaust on mine is a pain to say the least.
