With plates / placards that big the UK is probably wasting millions in fuel due to air resistance.

ha ha- yep the standard size 'mot' friendly uk ones are horribly huge! actually with all the other mods i haven't gotten around to ordering my 'show use only..!' smaller plate.

although with the uk weather at the mo it is acting as a rather good mudguard...the fek does encourge a bit of splatter!!!

I like the Thruvton gel seat and cowl. It's comfortable and you can remove the cowl for two up riding.
