Just to remind us living up north that spring WILL be here in just a few months. My Racer, pictured in Southern Sweden June 2019, today with 3000 miles on the clock and still loosening up. Completely faultess since new and I could not be more happy with this bike. Mods: Evo-Tech tail tidy, R&G shock tube, Oberon bar end mirrors, BMW 719 rearsets and BMW valve covers. Can recommend all of it. Tried removed flapper but did not like the sound (more harsh) so returned all to standard. Incoming right now is a Bagster tank bag and cover, for that trip to Norway I've promised myself this summer.
