I'm also about a day old on this forum. Check out the technical guides section for my first post - which may help you install a radiator guard should you decide you need to!

Thanks for the welcome.  Looking forward to delving through the forum and joining in.  First job on the bike might well be fitting a Rad Guard, so will look at that over the next week or so.

I need to get a shopping cart together really. SW-motech bash guard and the upper crash bars, and proper bark busters will be front & centre on it but they are VERY expensive additions.

They would pay for themselves immediately if you dropped the bike, which makes me wish I could just buy them today. Unfortunately my new house and workshop are absorbing any free cash I do have....

Guys, thanks for the advice about upper crash bars.  Will have a look at tinternet and see what I can source.  Are they easy to fit?
