Looks good Tink , being black it wont be as quick as an orange one though :P

Time to update that profile pic ?........

Interesting exhaust on it , fwiw I put some exhaust wrap on the front pipe as my boots got burned by the bit unprotected by the guard .

Will it get used in the mud ? - even though its v shiny !

Changed mine from the RE pic too B)

I've got TKC80s on mine as they were the only ones I could find in approx the right size in 17" - will check what size tomorrow , they work out a bit expensive but not much other option . I was considering a 21" front wheel for mine but have been happy enough with the quick steering 17" - not ideal if you drop it into "ditches" though as it doesn't roll over them but dives for the bottom - coud be the rider though :whistle:

Ok , finally been out to check :huh: , front 120 70 17 and rear 130 80 17 TKC80s the closest I could find to original sizes . The rear only just clears the silencer but it does ! As it's not exactly a peaky motor it seems to find decent traction even with the TKCs. :)

With my level of skill and sensitivity I couldn't tell any difference :)

Suspect the TKCs have at least as much grip on the road as the original Kingstones and a lot more on the mud .

At least with SM size wheels you only need one size of spare tube , which was handy last time I was out as I caught up with Nerd the nail on a Herts lane :pinch:

Have been out on a couple of rides now on the pulse 250cc thought I would update my thoughts on the bike...
First thing that struck me was how nibble the bike feels on the twisties handles good with very responsive steering,
Second thing was how sweet the exhaust sounds and it makes me smile when backing off throttle plenty of cracking and popping :whistle:
I'm truly enjoying this little chinese bike it makes me laugh and feel like a teenager again :laugh: ...it cruises along at 60mph very easy
also for a single it has barely any vibration through pegs or bars etc.

Last Saturday went out with my mate on his new Africa Twin we did a few light trails which were fun, amazing when you think the price difference
Between them, £1300 mine, his £10'500.
I know that his will be collectable and mine disposable one day ;)
