I think you should go for the full set, Jay. After all, you've already done the most difficult bit - getting an Oasis Greeen one... :smt003

Have to say they do look si much nicer in the flesh
For the avoidance of doubt and for the benefit of my wife, not everything I may say here will be absolutely true I may on ocassion embellish a little for effect.
That said when it comes to motorbikes, I like to ride side saddle with a nice frock

Bikes look stunning by the way

They are indeed streetfighter ones and come with the streetfighter chip. No longer made as far as I know but those ones were unused and brand new and a thing of beauty. Apparently sound good too :)
They come with a tail hanger tidy to keep them closer in so that luggage may still fit

Looking better than I recall and soooo much prettier than black but then what isn't ?

we know where you live geoff....

looks good - hanna has already christened the bike "Storm Trooper" as in the Star Wars characters :)

I like it - and may I interest you in some cleaning materials - you are going to need it :)


Let's face it, you wouldn't go to a nurse to get good advice on a problem with a Falco - you'd choose an Engineer or a mechanic...

Looks good Jay - the pearlescent works nicely .... but glad I've not got to keep it clean!

The red rag is a nice touch too - should you be followed by any bulls :smt003

Thanks all for their kind words.
Yes it is hard to keep clean and i was not sure about the colour scheme when choosing colours, but i love it!
I think when the weather is good i will take it to nooj for ventreshielding?
I have another project in mind and when finished should look nice too.

trick tri colour wheels,

Well done!
