749r

Picked up the latest issue of Bike magazine yesterday.Inside is an article on the 749R.Not had chance to fully read it yet,but it looks pretty favourable.
(magazine is the July '09 issue)

Likewise,one in Peterburglar.

My 999 sailed through its MOT after I attacked the lettering on the can with a Dremel.After grinding out the letters,I polished it all up and nobody is any the wiser.
