Managed a short ride out today North Manchester, Uppermill, Diggle Mossley Greenfields Delph, and Dobcross.

Nice pictures from both of you. I got out on mine tonight but never took any pictures

How's life with the BlackWidow DHCBX?

Does it have the center stand stop bracket thing?

Hi Swanny - life with the BW exhaust is good....
louder than stock but not enough to worry Police, Neighbours, bystanders etc, but howls when you open it up for an overtake...

out burbled a tuned Subaru tonight on overrun.....

Yes it does have the centre stand stop bracket thingy, not that i cn try it out as haven't got a centre stand fitted.

This is exactly what I'll be doing later.. Good for both the mind and soul, I've still been working throughout this pandemic but I'm still feeling the effects of being stuck at home for such a long time now.

BW looks great mate, do you have the end can or both that and manifold?

I only have the Silencer and not the full system, currently running it with Baffles IN.
not been brave enough to try it with Baffles OUT yet.

I did just over 100 miles today. All good, didn't notice any vibrations. Ended up riding the gravel track  through Savernake Forest. Easy to get the tail out like he does on the advert  :008:

Get those baffles out    :028:



Loads of bikes out on the roads, it was great to see people out having fun and enjoying their bikes again  :046: :152:
