Just got my bike back from the factory - a very strange experience. The administrator on site Pete could not have been more helpful and made sure my bike was charged and ready to go. A few months ago got them to paint a graphic on the tank which I am very pleased with. Also got a new custom Davida helmet ready for the wonderful summer to come....

I didn't get the chance to ride mine home, this is first pick after it was rolled off the van and that is Ice on the tarmac! I did manage a sneak pre-reg ride a few weeks later once I sorted the brake conversion. Looks a lot different now compared to then....

Well the government hasn’t actually specified not to use motorcycle, so off on an essential shopping trip to “Waitrose “today , complete with a top box ( amazing what those Chinese do for £20 delivered), as I couldn’t fit much in I’ll have to go back again tomorrow & the next day to get the rest.
