Taking delivery of any new maxi late in the year isn't the best, but at least you can check out the Forza's LED lights as the days get shorter, alter the illumination level of the instrument display to your liking, and when you are riding in the rain it's surprising how dry you keep just wearing jacket and jeans. Especially when the Givi screen is fitted.
It's nice losing about 60kg in weight after being used to a Silver Wing. Having HSTC making the Forza very easy to ride in rain, and if you've been used to riding on Bridgestone Hoops, OE tyres like the Pirelli Scorpions fitted to my 300 are on another level. Plus this compact style of Forza very easy to clean.

I really am very grateful for your tips and general support.
In the light of your previous comments about the screen, I will phone the dealer tomorrow and suggest to him I shall get the screen and fit it myself; a bit of occupational therapy will do me good.
I shall be interested to see what tyres are fitted. I'm a fan of Bridgestone Hoops since they turned the X9500 from a bike I was wary of into a very user-friendly machine. We shall see.
With any luck, Steve will brave the weather and lead me on a Ride before November arrives so both Forza and I will get a good shake-down.
