  2. Nice bike champ. My personal opinion but i would change the front indicators to something better, and my GOD that exhaust is huge, maybe something half its size.

    Congrats on the purchase :applause:

  3. yeah some things need changing. Not fussed over the indicators currently..they do their job. But the exhaust has to go... it just..too...quiet!! not to mention ugly. It's definately being upgraded once i have the spare cash

  5. my mate just got one. he put a staintune on and it looks great.

    those exhausts are absolutley HUGE!!! in person. i couldnt believe it when i saw it off the bike. it looked like a nuclear missle or a "snow cone maker" luckily being such a big bike it limmits the noticability a little.

    great bikes though

  6. Looks like a sweet ride. I've always likes this class of bike, and this model in particular. I agree with everyone else, get a new, smaller can. Otherwise break her in and enjoy sliding back on to the pillion seat.

  12. whilst shedding a tear, joel says-
    they grow up so fast these days, it seems like just yesterday he was dressing up in his riding gear, and strutting around the house, awaiting his first bike...the spada.

    well done drew, enjoy it.

    Joel..yes we all grow up....well some of us. :LOL: ..... sitting beside the new machine, the poor old Spada looks the size of a childs toy.


    Looking at a Staintune in the near future...once i can pinch enough pennies.

    booked her in for the 1000Km service on monday...so will have to limit the fun over the weekend :evil:
