    I hope the weather holds out this week and then I can get to the first service sooner rather than later

    Is the bike not usable if there's a cloud in the sky ?

    Clouds are ok, rain isn't.

    Ah,I see the problem !!! You've been riding a GS too long.

    It's ok,you can ride in the rain.Your Thruxton very likely has a RAIN mode for such a purpose..Or just don't rev the bollocks off it in the wet......

    Only a fool would intentionally ride a Thruxton R in the rain.

    I am sure the hypermotard is great but it lacks the total coolness of the Thruxton R - even non-bikers say how good looking it is, especially the women at work
