Got a letter from Suzuki today informing me of my engine number and "Susuki ID".

Funny you should mention that Tony... I just pinged Gary a mail on that very subject. Eeerie silence so far.

The original 'date' was "March", but I'm resigned to it slipping to April. I need to be able to get 10hrs on it and the first service done before we go to Ireland at the end of May.

nice :-)

do RB not do seat storage as in you lift the seat? is it only the side pods?

btw, great idea if so. I'm going to put doors in my RC seats.

also, what trailer is it sat on? extreme?

cheers

I asked for that specifically in an attempt to minimise the amount of water getting in. I've also specced some little vents high up on the sides to trying keep the amount of sweating to a minimum. In reality I'll prolly just leave the hatches open while the cover is on.
