    Hi Folks,
    Just following the format and saying hello. I finally got the blade I wanted 25 years after the original version of it came out...I guess patience has paid off :)

    Thanks folks, I've not taken many photos of it yet but in a couple of weeks I managed to put 500 miles on it so that was more enjoyable in my book. Photos will come eventually!

    Look forward to the photos! Has it got many mods on it? What are you plans for it? Put some mods on it or just enjoy it?

    Hey there, so far it only has a tail tidy and small number plate. Before I get any plate comments it is 100% legal. I got it made with full size numbers and correct spacing but they put the letters 11mm from the top and same from the left side of the blank. That meant I was able to cut it off along the bottom and right sides. As one of my numbers is a 1 it is pretty neat and fits between the stock indicators on the tail tidy.

    It came with the Akraprovic as standard so nothing needed there. I'm not planning on any major mods as the bike is good as it is but I am considering getting the slightly higher OEM windscreen which is only about an inch higher but has a marginally steeper angle to deflect the wind that little bit higher. :D

    There is one thing I was thinking about and that's the headlight. I do think bikes in general look a bit daft with only one headlight on when they have 2 but don't want to go around on full beam all the time as having the benefit of being able to still flash would be more awkward moving from full to dipped. If anyone knows of a way to add extra bulbs it would be appreciated, but likely I will revert to my trusted pal - Saint Google ;)

    Cheers, right place, right time; it certainly is a head turner, but that could be the exhaust too lol

    Hi and welcome to the forum, lovely Urban Tiger!

    I can recommend MRA tall screens, as used in Moto GP and they come with great stickers too...... Gotta love a decal ;)

    Thanks Paulo, I had not seen those in my earlier Google searches. I eventually did order the higher OEM one which is 27mm higher than the standard. I've not got it yet as it's coming to a dealer first as Honda UK have discontinued them but they managed to track some stock down in Eastern Europe.
