Glad you like it! I didn't like the colours originally but saw it in the dealer the other day and was a convert! Unique. Enjoy. Any questions just ask.

Lovely bike!

How do you rate the panniers?

Are they hard or soft, waterproof,stable?

How do they attach?

Cheers.

Panniers will be fine for a long weekend, semi rigid in construction and come with waterproof liners for your clothes, as they supply waterproof liner with them I'm going to assume that they're not waterproof, as a precaution I've treated them with Nikwax water repellant spray. I rode with them on today, very stable, in fact I didn't even know they were there. Three metal attachment lugs on a steel frame, locked with a key into position, easy to take off and on, can fit a helmet inside well. They're pretty unobtrusive and don't get in the way when filtering.

Hey Geofferz, what type of tyre pressure gauge are you using for the front wheel?? I have three in the garage and none of them will get into the valve and make a decent seal to check the pressure
