Lovely...Especially as it looks a little like an R7 from the front from one of the angles. :)

EDIT: Actually on reflection, it doesn't as the R7 had smaller headlights that weren't round, but it's still lovely :D

A thief likes the look of your bike

You need...

* Almax Series III or IV chain
* Ground anchor
* Tracker UK Tracker


An alarm is useless and at some point will have you calling breakdown recovery.
