    That is a good looking bike
    I have one the same and always said when petrol runs out I will put it in the front room on display
    Wife was not impressed!

    I have a great video of the bloke unloading it from the van when it was first delivered. I had never seen one in the flesh and you can hear me going ohhhhh damn thats a nice bike as he rolled it out. Has the orange paint started to fade at the tops of the fairings yet? I think mine is going a little bit.

    A little bit of fading on the top but not much

    I had that same exhaust too but without a power commander it did not run smoothly so chucked in the termongi one

    The bloke who fitted it before me did not get it mapped but it seems to idle and run perfectly. I plan to get it mapped properly in the summer. Only ridden it once so far! Its bloody loud but does sound good. I would have preferred a quieter one of i was buying. Looks nice though

    I found the race fit on long journeys too loud and needed ear plugs as opposed to normally riding with headphones in
    Also the track days that would even consider the race fit were noisy Donnington days.
    Get it on the track for a proper blast

    Love the video, its great to see another one. I found out many years ago i get motion sickness on a track day at Brands. I may try tablets to see if they help but i felt bad after just a few laps. Gutted. And no laughing

    Brands is certainly a technical track
    Silverstone would probably suit you as it is massive and no ups and downs
    A bit boring after you have been there a few times but still fun as it is fast

    That video was great, watched it a few times to see throttle control, body position, front view. Good bit of kit.
