 bit late getting away to do the bike deal so by the time I got home and unloaded - it was dark.
the bike itself looks a lot better than one would think of a shi//y brown colour and the saddle bags appear large in photos but are a lot smaller than you think

Cool! Good luck with it. When you trade it for the 650........I have noticed a pattern........I will buy the 650 from you when you trade it for something new. But we have to figure out how to get it to the states.............
Enjoy!

well I had a good look at this bike this morning- I actually like it and I think they have done a pretty good job on what they set out to do.
there is no risk about it- its looks a fu//en old motorbike and that's exactly what I wanted.
can't see any improvement from the gun metal I had earlier.
not sure how long the saddle bags would stay clean but I do like how they are mounted to the frame. pretty simple and effective plus they can be undone for removal too.

The perfect complement to your new acquisition is a Flyin' Miata V8 conversion (https://www.flyinmiata.com/V8/index.php) for your Silver Miata.

yeah I saw one of those. ive spent a few $$$ on mods on that miata and I would hate to think how much it would cost to put a v8 in one and then compliance it,
one think I noticed or two on the Pegasus bike
drilled front and rear discs and it a lot harder to get it on the stand with that rear pillion seat on. definitely affects the balance of the bike so it will be moved to the sideline
besides I never take any-one on the back anyway ;) the last time that happened was years ago.
the passenger fell asleep and his sleeping bag fell into the back wheel well and I had rear wheel lockup at 60 mph
new bike -new tyre gone and sleeping bag shredded too...LOL

Wildbill;

I see the On/Park/Headlight switch is gone and there seems to be a button with something marked on it.

What is it?  Is it still a headlight on/ headlight off switch or just something to plug up the hole where the old switch was?

if your talking about the left side - there is a high/low switch exactly the same as the kill switch to dip the lights.

well I decided to change the plug to a ngk…..no real reason apart from I think they are the better plug.

in the left ecu area where the tools are kept - after 9 years the tool roll has been replaced with a bit better item plus it appears a few extra tools too. overall a better presented tool rool compared to the original stuff.
when I bought the first euro4 5 or 6 months back I had to access this area for the single wire pigtail -to check for fault codes
well I don't think I or any future buyers will be doing that move any-more as its now been upgraded and to a 4 pin block affair

Wildbill, I think Arizoni was asking about the switch on the right handlebar that, on my bike, operates the marker lights, the headlight and will shut off all of the front lights when pushed to the right. My guess is that it is long gone so that the headlight remains on for safety and can not be turned off.  But he wants to know what the replacement button now does.  A kill switch perhaps? 

Or has RE installed the button that now comes as a factory option in new 2019 BMW motorcycle models, which when pushed will immediately call for ambulance and police assistance so that you and your bike can be checked over to make sure that you both comply with the most current laws in the country that you are riding through.  Any ticket issued will be immediately subtracted from your BMW debit card.  P.S. BMW actually charges extra for this new feature.  ::)

Wild Bill, euro 3 has that block connector as well.
Its for the dol, dealer diagnostic connector.
Maybe done away with the mil code wire?
Off route, recalculate?
