Bought this new 6 months ago and just took it for the first ride today. Took some time to decide how I wanted to change it and have made some progress toward getting it the way I want it. So far I've changed the mirrors, gas cap, oil cap, choke knob, throttle body covers, signals, tail light and rear fender. More changes to come, including the far too shiny shocks and chain guard. Likely the clocks as well. I installed the Arrow pipes and remapped the fueling the day I bought it. Very LOUD! The knee pads were installed the same day.

This is the bike as delivered after the Arrow pipes and knee pads were installed by the dealer.

Looks great. I always liked the Thruxton's.

Nice of Mother Nature to poke the earths crust up all over your lawn so you can park bikes on it. That's a nice one.

Russ, you could park 100 bikes on rocks in that section of the lawn.

Almost bought one of them when they first came out. Not enough power for my taste. Seems like the older I get the faster I wanna go.

Nice job John.

I want yer back wheel for my Bonny LOL :smt002

Been trying to get more poke out of mine as it's the 2002 790cc model :smt010

Think a 904cc big bore kit is the only way to go but I could buy a whole engine off fleabay (865cc engine) for the price of the kit :smt011

Got Predator pipes on mine and they are feckin super loud LOL er pardon
