    Take that little 125cc out and stick in a 250 or something - there is enough room.....

    lol probably not a good idea I went over the moors here once in the dark. Never again. I didn't go over 20 mph and I nearly crashed into 20 sheep at least. It was also so dark I took a wrong turn and didn't realise for about 10 minutes.

    Your not a proper biker until you have rode in really bad weather - wind, rain, snow, freezing conditions....I hope you plan on riding during the winter and are not going to be a 'summer rider' only.....?

    I'm a cheap rider.

    I wouldn't be doing it if it wasn't so cheap, so yes, to save the pennies, I will be braving every sort of weather!

    You will be dismayed how quick the finish will go on your bike once they start plastering the road with salt.

    oh yes...kiss thy bodywork goodbye..

    This is why a friend of mine uses his prized Suzuki GS550 in the summer, yet in the winter brings out the Black Pig, his prized Reliant. Warm and pretty salt proof.

    Well the new horn is just about fitted. There was no chance of it going where the original was but I found another place for it under the fairing.
    The horn is not quite as loud as I expected. It is slightly louder than my original but not much.

    The tone is definately different though. The original was a bike characteristic "meeeeeep". This has definately got a much deeper tone and sounds more like a car horn.
