    already told by her indoors that we need to save money in case of job loss.....thank feck she got me my birthday presents the other week

    Belstaff classic TT jacket, it is second hand but the owner never wore it on a bike, ffs so it is minty, and about a third of the retail price

    also some boots reduced from M&P's

    obviously going for the full on hipster look, must grow a beard....lol

    Thanks for that @tcbandituk, having read through the thread the issue appears to be the installing company fitting the wrong shocks rather than the shock themselves (it also wasn't just Nitron, K-Techs had the same problem). I think it was the installing company fitting shocks for previous models thinking they would fit the latest, but I will consider them under advisement ;);)

    I had a Falco and the Nitrons always got a good press for Aprilias.
