It is a North American SC28 colour scheme, they were a bit more restrained than our European versions

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

Gave mine a clean today, not that it really needed it, just a small amount of brake dust and a couple of dead flies, but I just enjoyed having the garage door open, radio on and a cup of tea. Was supposed to be working.

Today ?
I just looked admiringly at my 929 FireBlade and appreciated the sheer beauty of its engineering and its flowing brute thrusting power, even when it is standing still.....
Thank you Honda and Mr. Tadao Baba.

Early morning ride in the cool (UK) weather on my 2011 Blade (with no carbs)

No traffic, no farmers, and no insects! Always good to have the roads to ourselves, but it does encourage us to do things that perhaps we oughtn't

Got out on mine yesterday and got caught in a quick downpour, great ride though although in the afternoon there was far too much traffic to really enjoy myself

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

Yeah, it's a fine balance trying to get a bit of morning warmth before all the traffic of granny outings and Devonshire Teas (For our USA friends, that's scones with jam and cream and a pot of tea. One of the few British delicacies left after you guys have changed our language. We used to have biscuits - now it's all friggin' 'cookies'.

Bought a new helmet.

It's the OCD factor. Has to be the right colour

I was held up by a “wedding special” Routemaster bus, top speed, frigging 40 mph
