    looks pretty good !! all nice and clean ...

    just usual checks like chain , everything works as it should ie electrics , scroll thru menus etc , service history .

    look out for dents in swing arm and frame near the gear linkage , as these will how signs if bike has been dropped .

    valve clearences depending on mileage , what fuel map 1 or 2 . dog bone linkage condition !!

    Roy, purely financial I'm afraid. I would love a top spec model, but one must cut their cloth to suit

    Aye mucker but they're a bunch of fannies as well.

    Leslie has been here before, hence the not so warm welcome.

    Have to admit he's now got the best bike on planet earth.
