Just planning the summer trip – thinking about Norway….

I see Texas has softened you up - youre out with the heated gloves... in this balmy weather

You've reverted to your stock mirrors? Or was that just for the MOT?

Rollin'

Good to see you rollin' again in Blighty.
Awesome to see that spiffy bike-that has seen so much action-in the green and verdant British countryside.
Found some great new 950 trails around New Ulm this weekend. Keep up the good work mate.

Grandad here, you young Salford Whipper snapper. I borrowed the screen of someone else to try out. It may not look great but it sure as hell works better than the standard one for long road rides. I've done a couple 400 mile days over the last week up and down the motorway instead of using the car for work.

For the 2 minutes it takes to swap screens i'd use it from time to time even if it kills the street cred .

PPS. I adjusted it up to stop it falling off though
