Hello and welcome

Good luck with your new bike

I got mine in September and love it! Am In Wolverhampton.

I think you may be slightly disappointed if you are looking for custom parts for it - there are very little out there and if you do find something you will find it is unbelievably expensive. Having said that if you are prepared to hunt around and have bottomless pockets you will find something you like I don't doubt.

Mine is pretty much stock - fitted an additional alarm. Extended the mirrors with some extenders off Ebay. Extended the screen a few inches with some laminated card and changed the bolt that holds the seat on to a knurled one - other than that I am well pleased and looking forward to the weather picking up after winter so I can cruise around the country lanes again!

Take care and Happy Christmas!

Welcome to the forum! I got my first bike a couple of years ago after more than 50 years of not riding one.
