    I do wish the weather would blow itself out. I need to put some REAL miles on this machine to get the 600 mile service out of the way o_O

    Nice one Steve. If it zings up the revs like my old CB500 I'll have to take one out. Ready for some mud!

    Would you let me run it in 1st Tone!!!??? ;)

    My home made sump guard would need replacing for something with a bit more . . . . weight to it before I follow you & your Co-horts up a muddy track :confused: :ride: :thumbsup:

    For now I'll "do" the roads :rolleyes:

    It get s a good scoosh of cold water after every ride, just like wot my other machines do.

    The rain over the weekend got rid of a good deal of the road salt, but the roads are still white with the stuff plus loads of grit, hence the cold water scoosh after every ride :rolleyes:

    I was out on the Beemer checking out the Stages for the Snowman Rally held yesterday. Went to Glenurquhart stage, big long one, 11.5 miles:eek:. Didn't go all the way in as I saw a recce car go in ahead of me. Gate was open, you know the score, be rude not to :thumbsup:
    Now, had I known you were coming through ?? :D:D

    Rolled past yours again this morning John ;)

    Ullapool & back via not the most direct route on mostly dry roads with only the odd wintery shower, leading to a really enjoyable ride out on the little bike.

    When I say "I rolled past yours", I got as near as the A96 :rolleyes:, so didn't actually pop past your door. Thought you might have attended the rally - saw several mud splattered cars heading east on trailers as I made my way towards Inverness.

    Seeing as work wanted me to actually do something this afternoon, I decided to use the bike instead on a company pool car - weathers nice so it's be wrong not to really :rolleyes:
    Halfway round doing what I was asked to do I popped off the tar, far from the madding crowds (NOT) for a break . . .

    Rolled into the Shire on the way round to another job - well, why go back the way you came when the weather nice and the roads are both dry & empty :D

    Hi Stuart.

    SW Motech frames with my own mounting plates for some converted Pelicase boxes. The RH one sits a bit near the exhaust, but a sheet of alloy on the bottom of that box helps stop the box getting melted.
