    If you're interested, I have a V9 full-sized windscreen for sale on Ebay. I also have a set of V9 Bobber bars!

    I believe they do, when I went they had a H-D, several BMWs and classic Hondas. I would rather go somewhere where they know what 25 thou and 15 thou are for, gents with grey hair and greasy fingernails than a place where they only know how to plug a computer in. Anyway I will find out of course but I have no reason to think they will do anything other than a thorough job. The bike being new shouldn't need anything unusual doing to it anyway, should it?
    I once took my car (a Subaru) to a main agent Nissan dealer for a service because it was a special November offer. I was going to buy a Nissan Leaf from them. They told me they hadn't changed the spark plugs on my car because it had a diesel engine. I said "I don't swear, but I cannot think of anything else to say. It has a petrol engine, go and change the spark plugs". They came back after a bit and said "Your car has a Wankel engine, we don't do Wankel engines". This time I lost my rag and shouted that it has four circular cylinders and each one has a spark plug, go and change them. They were afraid that they were unable to do it so I had to pay them for four spark plugs to be supplied and fitted, though they neither supplied them nor fitted them. I had to go and buy them myself and fit them myself in my driveway at home. I realise that a Subaru is not a Nissan but if they could not service a Subaru they should have told me when I booked it in. So on the principle that a main franchised dealer can a) employ staff who cannot read the 95 RON label on the fuel filler cap, b) cannot smell the difference between petrol and diesel and c) cannot listen to an internal combustion engine and tell by the sound whether it is petrol or diesel, and d) cannot change spark plugs with all their fancy hoists, Snap-On tools and central heated fully equipped workshops, I think I might even prefer to go to an independent chap whose entire business relies on his knowledge, skills and experience.
    That is not to say that in this instance, my MG dealer is in any way incompetent - I cannot say that. I am very pleased with the bike - other than it would appear that the bike was not run before I bought it because it coughed and spluttered a fair bit before running smoothly.

    The screen is this: 202562637566
    The Bobber bars I haven't yet got round to listing. They're still wrapped up in the postal packaging. I had intended to swap them over but then moved over to the V7.

    No worries! I am right in the centre - just behind Westminster Abbey.

    In terms of dealers, Central Bikes are good. Laurie, the mechanic, is really helpful. He's helping me get my pipes replaced under warranty on account of the paint coming away. Interestingly, he also said you can buy add on years for the warranty as long as it's correctly serviced and before the end of the two year first warranty cut-off. This was news to me. There's another dealer in Dalston that's started doing Guzzi V7s. Their services were not too bad cost-wise.
