Picked up mine on Monday. Having fun setting up the suspension although the forks will loosen out some more with mileage. 600kms+ on it as of today. I have a Fenda Extenda ready to fit, and Crashbars will be next followed by Givi or SW Mocheck pannier racks.

I fitted the Pyramid fender extender great piece of kit, it really has made a difference,

I've also gone back to the standard screen, I bought a new helmet a Schuberth E1 adventure, and to be quite honest the plastic peak is just useless over 30 mph it bounces about and vibrates, so I removed it, but then found the high screen was buffeting my helmet a lot, so low screen and no adventure peak, all's fine now, very pleased with the helmet now,

No it's still an E1 but without the peak, the adventure is quite different on the front vent from the C3,

Sorry - I was only joking. I wish they'd updated the C3 Pro vents at the same time actually as ventilation is the only weak point on it. Well, that and the integrated comms system they sell. I didn't get on with that at all and gave it back - my ears are still recovering!

no probs, and yes the ventilation is much better than my old C3, the new helmet feels much lighter too, though I've not checked the weights,

I made a fairly simple sat nav bracket yesterday from 2mm stainless steel, to go over the top of the Tripmaster, works well,
I wasn't very happy having the sat nav on the handlebars, much easier to glance at now without really taking your eyes off the road,
