The 599 is a sweet bike. The more I look at one, the more I want one. I'm going to get one just so I can post in this forum. Anyone have pics of theirs, post up.

I have one, and you're right, it is a sweet bike. I love it. A lot of people underestimate its performance, I think because its naked. I will try to post a pic, but I'm new to the site and I'm not sure how!

Thanks. I did go to Hornets nest, mind-boggling the amount of 599's etc there. Here we are definately a small minority! I am curious about where all the aftermarket parts can be had, like the undertail kits, as I can find next to nothing here.

I think as the bike becomes more popular over there, is when all the after market parts boys arrive. Try going to the riderlist section on the nest as there a few american boys listed and maybe they could help you out as to where they accessed parts.

Didn't wanna post a new thread just for a couple pics, so I'll dig up this old one. Here's a couple pics of my 599 I took tonight after getting my frame sliders put on:





Quality isn't great since my camera sucks ass.

Thanks. Question for you, where did you get that Hornet radiator grille and was it reasonably priced? I saw something similar at whaccessories.com but $80 is a bit steep for what it is.

Ouch, I just went on a Currency converter and £65 comes out at $125.823 USD :eek:
Keep an eye on e.bay as the rad grills appear on there quite often at reduced prices

As its winter over here I've fitted a Baglux Tank Cover just as a bit of protection.


I've also fitted the Renntec Engine Protectors, as I dont fancy throwing the bike down the road.
