    Well finally went and got a new bike (we'll pick it up on Saturday)

    Here's what I've bought

    And here's what I'm getting done to it on way back from the shop

    Also have a Akrapovic exhaust and link pipe on the way.

    Looking forward to picking it up :)

    That looks way better than std :)

    Are you going to flash the ecu after changing the exhaust Colin ?

    Yes more than likely mate.

    The exhaust and link pipe is also coming with a PC5, but know you can get good results and do a lot more with the ECU flash

    Height wise 5ft 9inch weight wise 16 stone.
    Had a seat on 1 and honestly felt right at home on it.

    If I do get any issue comfort wise I'll just fit a set of rear sets to settle in.

    Granted the seat is nothing more than a plank, again nothing a gel insert won't fix.

    I assume he gets banned once he has picked it up and officially joined the dark side?

    Forget the PCV and get a flash and active tune, works awesome and keeps AFR set to what you need no matter what air temp or fuel, mine feels awesome with it, the flash also sets up better ride by wire throttle making it smooth as silk for road or quick action for track

    Enjoy mate, they are great fun
