    It arrived today.

    Unfortunately couldn't get a blue slip till tomorrow so i've only ridden it about 300m from the front of my house around to the back lane and into the garrage.

    First impressions:
    In pictures it looks insanely wide. In person its quite slim, especially to sit on.

    I think it will be far more comfortable than the F4i althought thats hardly a contest.

    It sounds really good for a standard pipe. As most of the aftermarket ones look shit I think I'll keep it as is.

    The lower fairings are comming later directly from HD. Apparently they don't trust their dealers not to charge customers for them?

    More to come after I've actually ridden it. Praying for sunshine tomorrow!

    Cool!
    It still looks very weird to me, but no doubt will be something special in almost every way :up:

    Well spotted MB. That ones for christams!

    Definitely is a bit unusual but after riding the whitegoods for the past 6 years I needed to go to the other extreme.

    Oh and I got a couple of HD stickers, a ciggy lighter, badge and t-shirt. The tshirt will come in hand when I do the oil change on tuesday night, don't smoke so the lighters pretty useless - any one want some HD stickers?

    reading the manual has some interesting features. Built in lap timer, pin code security system
