Yes indeedy, fairly impressive Matt. However as Mr Spooky says, he’s not riding it proper like. You never once hear the back brake pedal grind out on the deck. Unlike big bro. He could show you some impressive lean angles on his 😉

WHAT? "...... Carp on the road"! That must have been a powerful tornado Martin.  ;D ;)

As for the lean, fair enough, but ending up on the oncoming traffic side of the road on multiple occasions, just makes me feel queasy, rather than impressed. ???

Definitely not for the mud covered surfaces we have up here at present, with heavy drizzle and the potato, root vegetable harvest in full swing. The boxes of veg being carted behind large 45mph tractors with radial tyres at least 18" wide, on 6 wheel trailers with tyres of similar width, the lugs full of sandy clay!  ???

Cheers, Bill

That explains the BaaK exhaust, I thought about one but lots of money, didn`t  think too long

Aye Rufus, I find a good 1 1/2" dia pinch bar with a sharpened point inserted from the engine end of the silencer soon sorts out restrictions to breathing!  ::)

Bit like a Vick's Rub for your engine!  ;)

Good health, Bill

Big bro is defo NOT a Frenchman, maybe that’s why he can grind his rear brake lever. 😉 Oo laa laa 👨🏻?🎨
