    I've not done one yet so I didn't know it was a bit slow.

    I did one a couple of years back, they are slow in places - I think there is a recognition that everyone is NOT wearing protective gear (helmet and glove excepted) so pace is adjusted accordingly.

    Wow!

    I thought it was back with the factory being sorted?

    What did they find which prompted this?

    Nothing, I’ve not heard from them since it was collected, just being realistic , I hope they will look at it next week.
    They’ve booked work, building new bikes etc and my bike arrives. So logic says it won’t be at the front of the queue. Might be lucky and they work on it tomorrow and doesn’t require major surgery and it’s ready for return. Just hope they do work on it and it’s not anything major.

    Gary,
    A word from experience.... when my bike went back for repair I did not get a response from email so don’t rely on that and waiting to be contacted is frustrating at best.....Ring them and speak to Alison Cotterill or Rob - Clem is now in another part of the factory focussed on sales!

    I am not enirely sure myself on the overall look, I mean the tank is a thing of beauty but so is your bike in all black. I think it would look better on a lighter colour bike, possibly like mine. I am not angling as I cannot afford it. Is it still on or have you gone back to black. Once you tried black etc etc

    I’m back to black WR and the tank is now in the ownership of someone with a MUCH lighter colour than black.
    I’m sure we’ll hear from him when he’s done some design work.
    I think I now probably hold the world record for shortest ownership time of a 961 alloy tank...!

    To be honest your black bike looks the bees-knees and was almost my 1st choice in colour. I was going to suggest that the alloy tank looks out of place but it is really up to each individual, but now you are back to black it's a good choice :)

    Thanks for organising, good to catch up and put some faces to names at last. No doubt you will post some pics in due course. Did you get a video of Robs Dominator as he rode off? That was LOUD.
