Upcoming changes

After half a summer of riding a few changes are due, ordered some copper pipe to change position of oil runs going to have ago at coiling the tube as it will form a small oil cooler and look great if I can pull it off! Looking also t modify the wiring as said before I have far to many wires running here there and everywhere and the excuse will be a new set of handlebars.... probably narrow 14" apes I just like the stance and riding position apes give the bike so will move the light switches off the bars and just leave indicators and horn which should keep the red tapers happy as cant find any think to say cant move the light switch only the horn and indicators.

Course first I have to fix daughters laptop!

MAG run 25th September

Some will argue it was a waste of time as very little new coverage was to be had. Down near me the local news people covered it reasonably well even explaining correctly the reasons. Which is rare when it comes to the press!
The actual run went well but there were a few incidents where the cagers thought they would bulldoz their way thru several hundred bikes which wasn't gonna happen in their wildest dreams! They just got surrounded and slowed to a walking pace for a few miles, myself a spotty youth tried to off me by pulling into the middle of the road as I passed on my way home, not sure what he thought he would achieve but rode alongside his open window until the glow of the his red face became to much! Then a couple of white van men wanted to play sandwich the biker but the all powerful ol-syd just kept them at 15mph for a while once in front.............twats!

No more hassles with the bike no leaks odd rattle sound from front when at idle but disappears when pull front brake on! nowt loose so difficult to pin down...we'll see, summit will fall off or go bang! Ha Ha! sorry try not to do lol ................bugger!

First ride with different tank

I definitely sit "in" the bike now! I like it and  no leaks, shame I forgot to fully tighten the front brake lever mounts, and rode home using only the back brake the last 3 miles or so, still made me pay attention !

New Tank

Fitted the new tank today... sort of OK looks a bit more "chunky" and the bars look better with it than I expected.................more miles before fill up mind so something is better!
