Great stuff - keep it coming. We've got plenty of white stuff on the ground in Chicago, and I'm still working with Highland to improve the fueling for mine and NSX's bike.

Enjoy the (hopefully) mild Bristish winter!
Don't read too much into it Marcel. Dave and Stuart were fairly kind and the lighter bikes are easier to ride on the technical stuff. It is good to know that the Highland can do a good job but there is always a trade off. Some 3 inches in saddle height, 40kgs extra weight plus an extra 10litres of fuel and a larger turning circle (not enough steering lock) put you back a bit. Still seems easier than the other big bruisers though.

With regard to the fueling, Tim has ridden the new set up and says it totally cures the problem. Whether Highland will make this available next year we will have to see. If they do I will be an early customer.

No snow here (wish there was) far better than this crap point of freezing rain and drizzle.
