    Nice, I've pondered these in the past the prices are competitive, only thing that put me off is the lack of aftermarket fairings.

    I know the feeling, seems anytime we get decent weather I have a to do list longer than my arm. Barely managed more mileage this year than the MOT garage and back.

    Next one is 10th September. I live about 200 meters away, they look to draw quite a crowd but I've not been there to have a nosey (I've been boycotting The Ram since October 2009).
