Received this today courtesy of Kevin, aka 'Moose'. Looking forward to getting her registered and on the road, now I feel like a part of the forum :D

Congrats on your purchase. Registration can take some time at the moment , the DVLA are probably on reduced staff and had a covid outbreak

Thanks, and no, haven't mastered the starting yet! Managed to bu**er my knee after trying this afternoon. I did start it once after it was delivered but not since :lol: Never mind, I'll get it eventually I'm sure.

Hi Tony,

Congratulations on the new acquisition!

We posted a blog on starting the MT500 on our website.

Hopefully that's useful - starting them over the years has knackered my knee too!

Hi, yes I read that. I'm also struggling to get it on the main stand! A bit short in the leg :lol:

at home if you roll your MT onto one or two short pieces of half-inch board you can raise the back making it less of a struggle to use the mainstand.
