Yeah I think its the best colour as well but I would say that as its the fastest :ROFLMAO:

Bike seems ok couldn't go far as my knee is still in pain with the sciatica but I did a quick blast on the Motorway and its plenty quick enough. Hopefully my knees better soon and I can start to get out and about.

Bought the subscription to Sygic Sat Nav App for MySpin £16.99 seems good and I now get the voice instructions etc works well with the bike and my phone.

Booked in for 1st Service end of month £180 quid !!! so beware when you get yours.

180 quid...$222 dollars. Some dealers include first service with purchase, not yours I guess.

Why do they call it a "quid"? Isn't it the same as a "pound"? Confusing.

Hope your sciatica heals...it's no fun, I know. I had it so bad a few years ago I couldn't walk more than 100 feet at a time (regularly walk 5-7 miles now, no problem). The nerve damage was so severe that I lost the right anterior tibialis muscle (the one just adjacent to the shin bone) to permanent atrophy. It's the muscle that allows you to walk on your heel...without it you have "drop foot". Hope you don't have anything like that. As stated, I can walk with it, so it isn't disabling.

Let us know how it goes, Shurm...best of luck.

I know there are very few including the first service here in Australia. I remember when car dealerships used to do that but profit margins have shrunk and no manufacturer rebates to the dealerships stopped all that. Sometimes if you push hard when doing the deal you may be able to get the first service free. Honestly, it is just a basic check and here the average cost is around $380.00 to $420.00 AUD

My first service cost £142 for the naked.
Regarding aches and pains I saw a specialist last week and am down for a LH hip replacement, already had the knee done on that side. Haven't been able to throw my leg over for a long time, I have to stand on the footrest to get on. The thing is it's a two year waiting list for the operation..:(

Look after your health as much as you can and I am hoping you get the help you need asap to be able to enjoy your riding and the bike. Like a lot of us as we get old, we start to have issues. My both shoulders have been done, one was 2 times, then had about 8 umbilical hernias meshed a stiffed back now the right knees is slowly getting worst but time will tell. As long as I wake up warm and above the ground each day it is a bonus for me.
Take care we are all with you and thinking of you.
