  3. Brilliant! What a beauty.... I like Crossrunner in red, but a pearl-white one takes it to another level. Might well be my choice of a grown up bike when the time comes to upgrade.

    Once again, congratulations Fred! "Снежная Королёва" is an exquisite bike. I wish you thousands of happy miles together.

  4. Yes, yes it is... fitted a centre stand today, now just have to figure out a technique on how to deploy it...

  6. Yeah, not the easiest bike to lift onto the centre stand.

    Stand close to it and pull straight up as you push down with your foot

    yep - lift and push down at the same time but the movement is best started with a little roll back

  13. If you want to make it easy for yourself. Get a 1/2 inch ply or chip board and stop the bike with the back wheel on the board. Now bring the centre stand down and the hardest part of the lift is already done for you.

  15. yup takes a little practise and when you get the knack it's very easy, like using a rear paddock stand for the first time you have to be assertive ;)

  19. Fairly exclusive club... just don't seem very popular but no idea why as they are such a great bike and value for money.

  20. It's a beauty, MudfrogMudfrog! Superb V4 with good suspension to cope with the variety of Australian road conditions; can't fault it can you!
