Hello from NC!

Hello all,
I traded in full leathers and only riding on the track for something a little kinder to my back. I've enjoyed all sorts of riding over 25 yrs. though. So, after drooling over the 9T for a couple of years... I mistakenly rode one last week and left my sportbike behind the next day. The next day, I was hit in the rear. So, most of my searching will be relegated to tail tidy's, crash bars and new levers to fix (the thankfully minimal) damage. Looking forward to tweaking this thing to make it my own and seeing everyone's efforts!

Welcome! Sorry to hear about the accident. What tail tidy are you looking for?

Thanks everyone! I think the Rizoma Fox or something like it is more fitting of the style of the bike. When factoring in the Euro tail light as an add-on though, it gets expensive quickly. So, not 100% on anything yet. After being whacked from behind, I'm definitely giving more consideration to ultimate visibility too. I've read a lot of the threads, but any input is certainly welcome.

I like the look of that. I have the moto box slimline with Oberon and love it. Lots of visibility.

Welcome and I'm sorry to hear about the bump. An led tail tidy plus separate indicators and an auxiliary brake light flasher might be the way for you to go. Good luck with your search.
