The only V8 I'm likely to own comes in one litre tetrapaks and tastes like celery.

Put her up on the Abba Stand in the garage with the doors open - and got her doing a couple of stationary (miles) in various gears to move the oill around and warm her up.

I didn't actually take the bike out. The road is still covered in ice and mud so if I do take a bike out it's the ER5 at the moment but I spent a happy half hour in the shed, with a nice mug of hot Bovril, and read out the list of meets, rallies, race meetings, camping trips and Triumph owners club ride outs that I have written down for this coming year. There's something for almost every week from the start of March onwards and it doesn't include the evening meets, bike nights and every day riding I like to do. I thought it might cheer the bike up, having so much to look forward to. It certainly cheered me up. It's going to be a busy year  :002:

Today I decided to put one of the Xmas presents the wife got me on the bike.  Against the Matt paint job the Matt carbon fibre twill heel guards look amazing if I do say so myself.

Might have to change the bolts to black though!  :490:

I will be honest with you, the company she got them from will not get another penny from me and not worth a mention but that's another story!

In future all my parts will be ordered from CarbonFbr without a doubt!

Nothing much, just a bag of frustration... :005: :230:

So replaced fork oil, only to find out that one leg will need fork seals (it's got a small leak) and on the other, as I was torquing the dampener lock nut realized the top piece is so soft that you can very bloody easily shave some aluminium off... Guess where the shavings fall into...

Multiple swearing has occurred... Back to f'ing square one  :134: :003:
