for the RD anyway, was a good one thou, ventured out with my friend on his NS400, we gave them a proper pasting on the way back..Completed around 900 joyful miles on it this year, been brilliant.

Some light Winter fettling instore for it, looking forward to that and getting my 350 up and running ready for next year ..

Great photos. Your RD looks brilliant. Love those colours.

The NS looks quite tidy. You guys must have some good fun with the RD power and the handling of the NS.

Thank you, appreciate the comments.

Yes, the NS for sure handles much more quickly & neutral, especially at lower speeds...its also a lot more comfy than the RD with higher bars and more relaxed leg room but its no surprise the RD does have the legs on it top end (the NS now makes 53RWHP after a recent rebuild & dyno set up) but on the road its more closely matched than the figures indicate..Some of your friends you can have a gentle run out with but this particular mate of mine, we always end up having a ding dong...All good fun...
