    I guess I got spoilt by the Harley indicator system with automatic cancelling after coming out of an intersection/ when overtaking etc - and having such large indicator switches.
    I'm a first time KTM owner so I don't know whether it's been a traditional feature. I love it to bits and whilst the quality of cycle parts is pretty high, they go and put shitty OEM Maxxis tyres on the 790 which have bugger-all grip in the cooler weather. And we won't mention my warped disc rotors. It's almost as if the company accountant has a big say in the final spec without understanding functionality. Guess that applies to a lot of manufacurers.

    That's very true Geoff. I've had the front discs warp on a few bikes (A Moto Guzzi, Triumph and a BMW) all within the last 10 years and all this on bikes that had never been anywhere near a track and had been ridden with due consideration. It does seem to be a thing with bikes at the moment. I guess they have to curb costs somehow.

    I do like the look of the RE Interceptor though. I'm also curious about the Benelli 752. It looks very Monster-ish. No bad thing IMHO.

    Well my RE arrived, a chrome tank version ("Glitter and Dust" is the official colour scheme.)

    'er indoors got one with Orange Crush paint.

    But due to recuperating from surgery I can't ride it for another fortnight or so....
