Looking good mate.
Once I get mine, we'll have to meet up for a ride out.
How did you run the bike in?

Took just under 3 weeks!!!
Alan jeffries at Rotherham is around 30 quid cheaper than Nottingham on cost.
Get your bike booked in the day you receive it, service depts get booked up!!
Kept to 4000 revs and stayed at below 70 mph.
Once service done you will notice the bike really loosens up, well worth the boring 600 Miles.
Got seat done cause it was like sitting on a wooden plank.
All personal things but I've got Bernie, bikes name, exactly as I want it now.

They are around 500.
There is a guy called Gipsy, a dead ringer for the count in counts customs, who does awesome personalised seats, Very highly recommended.
He's in Newark-on-Trent. Also he will do it in 2-3 days not weeks like wunderlich.

Took mine to P&p Seating in Birmingham, Andy fitted gel pad and relayered existing seat while I waited. Made a massive difference and was a good bit cheaper than a new seat.  If yours is on order and you can take the extra height it's worth asking for the comfort seat.
