Passed mod 2 :)

Finally, after owning the bike for nearly 5 months, I have now passed module 2 after having to wait to turn 24 for the new licence changes. Now to get the thing insured and to ride it this weekend :)

Only had 1 minor in both mod 1 and 2 so happy with that.

Wow you have had to wait 5 months to ride legal. That would have drove me crazy when I first started riding.

Congrats mate! Now go out and enjoy the bike, you've earned some fun after the long wait.

Keep it shiny side up and hopefully I'll see you out and about soon.

Thanks guys, I can't wait to go out on a proper ride, decided to insure it today while I had an hour and just been out for a quick blast to my grandparents house to show them as they had only seen it in pictures.

I haven't even got out of third and the thing flies, not even booting it, defiantly going to be taking it steady.

was the insurance price a shock to the system?

I've gone TPFT. Didn't see the need to go fully comp, bike value at 2k which is what I paid and then 300 in additional extras, in case I do get some bits and bobs for it.

Ah that explains it, I'm paying £600 a year for fully comp. It's well worth it with all my extras tho as it'd be a bill of £2k+ if I dropped it.

Still not bad. Mine was a fortune for my first year but then I'd done direct access and my CBR was my first bike!

Yeah this is my first big bike, not sure if they take my few years on a 125 into account but I haven't mentioned it on insurance. How many miles did you put down per year, I think I put 5k.

They'll know from your licence that you've had your CBT for 5 years, it makes a huge difference and I wish I'd done mine years ago just to have it on record. I did 7,500 miles last year but she's my daily commuter as well as weekend toy so combined with my IAM rides that bumped it up a lot. I'm probably going to be doing around 5k this year now I work from home.

That's my most up to date pic of her, but I have since added orange rim tape and decals to it. It won't be staying this colour scheme for long as it is only wrapped and it doesn't seem to be sticking to the fairings very well, so I think it will be off in a few weeks.

Very nice! What colour are you thinking of doing to replace the wrap?

It will just go back to how it originally looked.

Here is a picture on the new rim tape and the original design that it will be going back to eventually.
