    Nope, not me. I only picked it up yesterday so I've not been out and about on it yet! I'm a bit feart of it still a bit clunky and jerky till I get a feel for it! Got a good few bike events next week assuming it's not pishing down! Might see you out and about sometime! Don't be afraid to say hi!

    I was just passing through with my wife on our way home from our Honeymoon tour of Scotland and saw a yellow Speedy like yours parked up. We don’t get that far north too often but will certainly say hello if we saw you.
    Enjoy the new bike, ride safe :grinning:

    Awww that's lovely! Scotland is a bonnie place for it!

    Aye, apparently there's a guy with a yellow speed four in South Queensferry too which is only 15 miles from me lol. They're not that common either.

    Did you buy it from down here? I had a feeling I’d seen it, or one like it at Preston Superbikes a while ago

    Nah, I bought it from a place around 20 mins from me. A guy I know. Was only the second big bike I went to see!

    I test rode it before I bought it and then rode it about 15 miles back to mine when I picked it up! Still getting to grips with it but the extra power after being used to a 125 is incredible!! :D

    Yep, I can imagine it will feel like a massive step up from a 125, just go steady until you get used to it, if local Police do a rider course (it's called Bikesafe down here) it is well worth going on, they will steer you in the right direction with how to safely make progress. I wish you the very best of luck, enjoy that bike! :cool:

    Extra braking too, now you have the weight pushing so it wont lock up, quite, so quickly, and the weight makes it feel more proper eh?
