Hello and welcome from East Sussex

Most members on here use smaller size bikes

Some are older and picking up a small bike is a lot easier :lol:

Congrats - Incredible and highly capable machine so long as you don't mind lifting its girth...needs proper tyres to even smell the two-stroke smoke of most of the guys here as they're all flying around and through ruts on motorcycle equivalents of cheetahs. Don't let this worry you however, there are a few of us on massive water buffaloes.
