    Picked it up a month or two ago now, and have been getting used to it. Rode it home in freezing conditions, the ice (?) warning light being on for my 4 hr journey, snow showers etc. First impressions are wow, wow and wow!! Sounds superb (WINGS) and handles better on the road than something with a 21 inch front wheel should (Better now I have sorted the suspension out front preload was set differently on each fork). Not done much long distance work on it yet but cant wait. I have scratched, commuted, green lane'd it and done a camping weekend, all passed with flying colours. Its not as difficult to work on as some would have you believe. Cant wait for the summer to begin, bring it on!!
