Me neither, i was pacing, scratching and nail biting at waiting just 1 week from purchase date to  the PDI & accessories being fitted, I couldn't wait 6 months.

To be honest I'm not sure how I'll go,still have my little 600 hornet for another month,that may ease the pain.
I guess there's always decorating to fill the time !! :745:

I'd be guessing so the bike has a new 18 plate registration

No,it's just the standard bike as I have full givi luggage to go on from the hornet,I need to fit the new racks mind,bagster tank cover,then some kind of crash protection,liking the TBR sliders,will see how I get on with the screen,as being 5'6" I could get away with hiding behind the clocks lol.
Exhaust wise I like the look of the scorpion RP1-GP in carbon, gone through all 41 pages of the exhaust gallery and the search function but not found anyone who has them fitted,done the usual trawl through google and youtube for looks n sound,but always like to have a first hand account if poss,saying that there's a scorpion serket taper in carbon fitted to the hornet and I love that,will have a chat with them at the NEC,see if they can do me a deal like last time.
After that maybe a fender extender for front n back,also R&G do some nice rad guards and one for the lower fairing that protects the downpipes,all adds up quite quickly though lol !!
And always open to suggestions or recommendations

Yeah it's going to be an 18 plate, as I don't ride much in the winter

Surprised to hear you're gonna fit a rack to it and keep your existing panniers, instead of using the OEMs.  :112: No offence intended, but from 2014 it was one of the most appreciated updates for the bike!
RP1s will look nice (I looked into them myself) but due to the mounting angles (pointing up!) you will most likely burn your panniers when you have them fitted!  :006:
