For the 2 minutes it takes to swap screens i'd use it from time to time even if it kills the street cred .
Keep yer flat cap on Lowry

I hope those days were round 200 x 2 round trip...cos 400 miles from your place either way puts you in the ocean somewhere

I don't know why, but seeing that bike in Blighty, after having seen it mired in silt beds in Baja and snowstorms in Colorado and mud in Texas, makes me very happy.

Now get us a shot from Morocco, you slacker!

You must be a very very happy man today after last nights result. I was crapping myself after Ronaldo made a balls up of that penalty.

If Sunderland and Roy Keane can't win it (yet) I'll settle for Man U doing the double/treble etc.

Currently running 19" front and a 17" rear with 110/150 Michelin Anakees

Street bike eater in the tristies, I love it!! Only problen is, the lanes are so tight and twisty and my bike is so tall (03' S with a 6'5" rider) that when its at 45 degrees lean angle there is not much room for cars coming the other way

Did you bring the wheels back from the US or did you get them in the UK?
