Gave it a good wash and used this item as recommended on here.
Holy shit... I have been neglecting all my other bikes. Amazing how much water it blasted out the switchgear and other nooks and crannies. Didn't need the heat turned up too much, the concentrated blast it gives it just fantastic.
I'm liking this retired shit. Wee 12 mile cycle on trainer early this morning. Into car and away for a swim, sauna and steam room. Pop into shops for some food supplies on way home. Get washing out on the line. Then out on Zed.
Life is good.
I adjusted the bars down a bit, made a difference in my comfort, bit more of a racing feel. Done 85 miles without stopping to stretch ma pins , bike is super comfy and most enjoyable to ride. It has only doen 200 miles now so not opened it up as such.
I must say that the new BKS Fury leather bottoms i got last week are super comfy. Fit is great and no tight crunchy spots around hips or knees. Worth the dosh.
Having not had a " big bike " for nearly 3 years and been belting about on the YBR125 as a commuter . I'm looking to treat maself in a few months once i get retired.
I took this out today for a wee run from Edinburgh down the A7.
Colour and nose fairing aint my bag. Will be a black 1200R . Maybe.
Fook me. Torque is amazing. It just pulls in every gear.
Ok. Been 4cyl chap all my days for big bikes. Had a shot on an SP2 over 12 years ago for about 15 minutes. Shat ma pants to be fair.
This is what i found myself on today.
Quite snatchy in traffic out of town. Maybe just me adjusting.
Once out on open road . This thing is crackers. Sound is awesome with Vance and Hines on it. Found it very comfortable once i adjusted myself and kept relaxing as i was aware that i was tensing up having been away from big bike status for so long.
To be honest i was a tad shitting ma pants.
I needn't have worried. It hit 3 figures in a very quick shortshift. Slowed down and tried to see how good it pulled from low down in each gear. Well impressed.
Tried the brakes from a reasonable speed 3 figures.. . and one finger braking. Stops so very fast.
After riding the 125 so often. It felt very heavy on roundabouts, wasn't surprised. At 200KG plus , and my lack of biig bike feel and confidence.
Downside. Sidestand is hidden under exhaust and the boots i was wearing ( old Alpinestars ) gave no movement to get it , had to flick it out by hand. OOOOH ERRR .
Heat from engine once back into town was a bit annoying on inside of knees.. Tho i tend to hug a bike with my legs. Ended up with them out to cool down in Edinburghs glorious 20mph limits.
So. My morning was good. Will i buy one ? Probably, second hand and most certainly not from Two Wheels in Edinburgh.
Finally got it returned after the Royal Mail took it upon themselves to delay delivery , FOR A MONTH.... , due to the battery not being in the phone. Which I fucking declared. By which time the buyer had got a refund and bought another.....

Enroute to Wigan , Sunday morning for a straight swap to a Z750. Got 90 miles to Lockerbie services for a quick coffee. The straps were all tight 60 seconds before.Paddock stand sank into the shitty thin ply floor.
Over she goes
Could've been a whole lot worse if the front end wasn't wrapped up in a big thick duvet. Expensive lesson learned.
A £380 one at that.
21 years and 11 bikes. First time I have had any damage to repair.
