    Farkaling finally complete (at least for now)

    Had the first service done today and the final farkles were fitted. The list is now -:
    Lowering kit
    Modified side stand
    Fenda Extenda
    R&G Rad grill
    Givi Crash Bars
    Givi spotlights
    S&W Motech footrests
    Tom
    Tom rider satnav and hard wired cradle
    Shad seat
    Givi carrier
    Givi Trekker metal topbox
    Hugger with chain guard
    Optimate lead + Optimate 5
    heated clothing lead
    All of these were either FOC or discounted
    Whilst there I also got tempted into a new Arai Chaser-X helmet again with a good discount. It pays to be loyal to a good dealer.

    What no pics of your new baby 👶! The best part of farkling is showing off your efforts to improve your ride.

    18 centuries of the choice, 'believe this way or die', & always chosen life, is a lineage difficult to separate from. I understand. But do not fear my belief science created the universe, I'll never say "Big Bang's Will" made me do you harm. We are a genuinely free & peaceful lot.

    New to this board and just looking into the NC line of bikes out of curiosity with the DCT.

    The first thing I would do is to protect those fork tubes with shields or good ole accordion boots. Don't ask me how I know how fast fork tubes can get pitted by flying sand or gravel and then take out the fork seals... replacing burred fork tubes and leaky seals may be someone's idea of fun but it ain't mine... waaah, poor me...

    Beautiful color. How much did it cost to get it painted blue?

    That's a stock color in Europe I believe.

    There are certain terms that motorcyclists use that have meaning only to other motorcyclists...

    "cages" = cars.
    "Squid" = rider without much skills.
    "Had to lay it down" = I fell over, and I'd like if could all just pretend like that is a legitimate way to come to a stop.
    "Farkling complete" = I'm out of money.
