Hello, all! I'm a merchant navy cadet at Warsash, in Hampshire (about a 20-minute-odd ride from Loomies' bike cafe). Name's John ("Ethical John" to the other cadets, hence "EJ"..) and I'm on an ex-demo 16-plate in AY colours.

My last couple of bikes were a Moto Guzzi V7 and a BMW F-800ST. I don't have a car and I ride all year round.

Only had the bike a few days, but have fitted a few things to her already: Givi screen for a Guzzi V7 (bodged it onto the XSR with a couple of home-made struts), handguards, heated grips, carrier-rack and top-box, sat-nav, centre-stand, Black Widow exhaust system, and about a gallon of ACF-50. None of the above have really done anything for her looks, I'm afraid, but they're dashed practical!

Hoping to get out on the XSR a fair bit before I next have to go to sea, so maybe I'll run into a few of you out on the road!

EJ

Nope; (trying not to be too specific) I'm much more likely to operate in some waters than others!

Nice boat! I've been out on the Hamble a few times, on small keelboats - but it's way to pricey a game for me! (Although I must admit, it'd make the Warsash-Calshot journey an awful lot quicker..)
