History
After 16 years of trying to get the Mrs on a bike, I bit the bullet and bought a Speedmaster, a bike that she liked the look of. My S3 with Arrow system was too hooligan, my 955i Tiger was too tall, previous bikes were bandits, not a hope she didn't like the look of them, and as to Imphal my bonnie, that's just too noisy for her???
So after promising not to change it radically and another 4 months of coercing, I finally got her on the back and on the road. She remarked afterward that it wasn't as bad as she thought it would be, and that she would get back on again, when the sun comes out and the temperatures vastly improve which I class as a win.

Modifications

Exterior
Screen removed, didn't like the buffeting it caused? (My other bike is a Bonnie, no screen) HD Tracker bars, no need to change brake lines, cables, etc as they are narrower than the stock bars
The extra lights were removed too but I left the heated grips, they're quite useful in NI
