YOWSERS!

There's some serious red anodising on that!

Apart from the grips and tyres I really like it TBH, but if you love it that's the most important thing, glad to hear you still like riding it.

Jeezuz... that's dripping with all things Bling hehhe.

Nice but not my cup of tea. A little too 'Steal Me' for my liking hehehe.

However, hats off for what is clearly a nice clean build.
