Changed the orange indicator lens to clear. Just to modernise it a bit
Cheated on it. Test rode the new Streetfighter V4s yesterday. Unbelievable thing. I'd be buying it if it wasn't looking like costing £4k to insure.
Ordered a bunch of 'mods' for my new bike which is on delivery right now
I've ordered a Ducati Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour with the full Termi race system. I know the V4 is likely coming out next year... But why wait when I can upgrade later down the road?
Mods I've ordered/received:
EP tail tidy
New LED rear indicators
Booked an appointment with a local powder coater to have all aluminum parts powder coated black (foot pegs, engine guards etc)
Still looking into a GPS unit, almost decided on the Zumo XT. Lastly looking for a phone mount, really wanted the Quad Lock mount, but they don't have a case for the Samsung S20 Note Ultra.
I had the Zumo 395LM and it was great linked up to my Sena headset to receive instructions through my helmet.
Quadlock do a universal mount so you can grab an S20 note ultra case and stick it to the back.
I did see that, but seeing as I just paid 1500 euro's for it a week ago, not sure how confident I'd feel with it's effectiveness as it's simply stick on. But I'll keep it in mind.
Got the email a few minutes ago about pre orders for the note ultra cases.
Woooo, thanks mate!
got it moted and passed 0 issues (even with no cat ) dam it was loud in the MOT place Off to test the 1290R and 1290GT tomorrow !!
Evotech tail tidy fitted to my 899 Panigale
Much nicer rear end now
Huge difference! It looks so much better being tight up against the back of the bike.
Just need to stick a 7x5 plate on it now.
Nice, makes pretty much any bike look much better.
Mmmmm. Been thinking about a slightly smaller plate but have been given fines before for the plate being too small so not sure to be honest.....
I’ve personally never had an issue with a 7x5 plate but fair enough if you live in a highly policed area.
I got a £20 fine back in the 90s for a truly ridiculous postage-stamp sized plate. Since then, I've had various technically illegal but sensibly sized plates over the years with zero legal interference. The real PITA is at MOT time. These days I just have a standard legal plate. Can't see it when I'm on the bike
Fourdot make nice plates that smaller but legal with fancy shapes, used them twice now.
Yep have a four dot - pretty much smallest possible legal plate
Had the pillion seat made into a semi cowl but looks better with an actual cowl, switched the the gloss Black instead of matt, SP engineering Titanium stubby exhaust and OEM under cowl next.
Keep an eye on the shock sock, they can trap moisture and cause issues.
