She's here!!!  :082: :082:  :082:

  First job, get her out of the crate!
  Second job, fit those accessories!

I still need to register her - so have to wait until next week - but she's here  :046: :046: :046:

Congratulations Doc,

Silver is my first colour choice.

How does the silver paintwork look, is it metallic, is there any depth to the colour ?

Where excatly do the fairing deflectors fit ? I tried looking at your photos, but could not see - or don't know what I am looking for over the standard bike.

Were they fitted as an OE accessory, or did the bike come from Honda fitted ?

Compare the 2 photo   . 1  no  deflectors    "  IN photo 2  they show on the join line between the rear edge of upper/lower fairing and the front edge of large black plastic trim piece on the tank . They re like small 'ears' .. I think i rememder similar items being fitted to theold Mk 2 ford Sierras!!!!!!They should destroy the sticky unstable air flow attaching to these front panels in theory keeping thisnasty air  from us .... They are OEM Honda accesory  and cost  a typical :138:  £90 appx in the UK

The silver changes colour depending on the light falling on it - truely an awesome metallic colour. I made a good choice.  :169:

When I've registered the bike and bring it home, I'll take some close up pictures and post them. They do take the wind away from your legs quite well - but they are difficult to see as they are black, the same colour as the piece they are attached to.
