Clip-ons and rearsets. Not quite as crunched as a true sport bike, but probably more sporty than a sport-tourer. The seat does allow me to move back and forth, so that helps.

She's fast enough. An absolute joy to ride! My Vee is definitely faster.

I'm bright yellow with envy! I've admired Thruxtons for some time now.

That's one of the best looking bikes I've ever seen, why can't they (Japan) build something like that now is beyond me-it would sell! Cheers--BB

Wow, high praise! Have you seen the Kawasaki W650/W800? Very classically styled bike. Check this one out!

Nice. I've always liked the W650 and now the W800 - a better made British bike!

You don't get pulled over for not having a rear mudguard (fender)?

Nah, it's fine here in the states. There are some guys in your neck of the world that have had to get quite clever about keeping just enough mudguard to stay legal on these bikes.
