I’ve had my 1100s BM 19 years next January so if you can get your head around the quirks of a boxer they have their plus’s.

No matter how smart you are you can never convince someone stupid that they are stupid.

I've already got a few aftermarket parts catalogues, I'll finish it off once I've got my hands on it!

I have to ask - why does it have two mudguards on the front wheel, and none on the back by the look of it ?  :icon_scratch:

It does have a small one on the back, but I'll be putting a hugger on over the winter. The small black front one looks like a token effort to keep a bit of crap off the front of the bike, so I'll be looking around for an extender too.
