Cheers guys, thanks for all the positive comments. I always intended to do a nice job but I think my OCD has taken over and I've gone and built a garage queen! I dread to think how many hours are in it and money for that matter, but that isn't why we do it. If I put a price on the enjoyment and knowledge I've gained it's worth every penny. I will use it but only on high days and holidays, I can't see it ever seeing dirt again.

Rich, it's nice to know there are IT riders in this neck of the woods, I thought I was pretty much the only one. I did see someone in Rainham in Essex advertising a bike I think it was but that was a while ago.


When I get some time I'll post some more pictures.


Nigel.

2008 KTM 950SMR, Akro's, X Bikes airbox mod & Air filter, tail tidy and loads of carbon.
2002 Honda VFR800 VTEC. Decat headers, K&N, PC3 with custom map and full Honda luggage.
1984 Yamaha IT490L, full DG exhaust. Currently in not so many bits!

Great job Nigel looking forward to more pics. I gave the 465 and love it, it?s a great bike off the road and in the woods you should take yours to the dirt you?ll love it even more off road and you can always clean it after 👍
