Might take a few rides to get it right. Always easier when it becomes a natural action. You will manage

Farkle time!

Dux gave the baaaik some TLC...
- Barkbusters fitted
- New front tyre fitted (thanks PistonPete)
- New air filter
- Replaced the indicators
- Lowered the bike, so now I can comfortably flat-foot it
- New exhaust. It sounds like a thumper now!!!

Now all it needs is a bashplate.

Suffice to say, I am in my happy place  :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

This bike is the best investment I have ever made!

Yesterday morning I went for a coffee and cruise along Clarence Drive before work. And it turned 46 000km old on the way back from work. Done just under 3000km since I bought her.

Thank you.
I'm joining Lord Knormoer's group from Donford. So if we don't pass enroute, then I will see you in Gouda!
Which route are you taking for the trip back? Might want to join you with that.
