:lol:, as long as I have enough poke to pass the odd car or two I'm laughing, if stopped in trafic on a C road due to campervans, tourists and caravans I can use the verge 😂.

See if you can find one with suspension up grades. Mines got hyper pro front springs and an ohlins on the back, makes a massive difference especially on the road.

Great forum, loads of info. Xt660.com was great, but think it's no longer.
