@ Dennyboo just uploaded 4 pics of RE on my profile 2 of which it has 2 peoples camping gear on it [taken on trip down to South Wales]
The bike is a 500 cc Chrome Classic .The trip to S. Wales was 231 miles each way and with 80 miles or so run around while there used 25 litres of fuel [13.2 tank capacity]
The diesel bike that they make is a 350 cc and weighs same as mine at about 190 kgs [500lbs in English]

wowzer thanks QM it look s like an original is chrome and paint ok ?
I could get into stuff like this
Bet the diesel bike is very slow as it wont have a turbo on will it ???
Carnt see them doing any good tbh but coud see someone like BMW doing something there
Appreciate the trouble you gone to thankyou

Dennyboo the oil splurge I get is not too serious just can't wear ma best pants on rides lol
It only does it on a very very hard ride and the discharge is a very light occasional mist,that you only notice when parked up. It doesn't affect performance or deplete oil in my tank.
There are apparently a few modifications you can perform,or it is something you get used to and just live with,as part of riding a Sporty
