Tell us about it: “I ride with my local blood-bike group – LEBBS (Lincolnshire Emergency Blood Bikes Service) – and after riding their FJR on the fleet, I fell in love and decided I had to replace my Honda Deauville NT700. I find it really easy to ride, with plenty of grunt when I need it, and I have a Remus Evolution can fitted, which sounds awesome.
I’ve made some modifications by adding front and rear mudguard extenders, and extra rear brake and running lights. I’ve fitted an auxiliary fuse box under the seat too, which makes it easier to connect wiring for my heated clothing, sat-nav and Optimate. The next project is to get some heated grips fitted and maybe a radiator grill guard.”
