To THM.... apologies for resurrecting your thread, but had to say how much I've enjoyed the members good humoured banter, and yes the bike is a real stunner. One question though. How did you train the bike in the photos on Page 27 to stand up all on its own? Mine keeps falling over no matter how many times I say "stay!" and rush for my camera. :facepalm:

I'm glad we entertained you. We are available for after dinner speaking and party conferences.

The bike is rather lovely.
