Looking forward to it . I think Emma will enjoy it. The snow last year was a PITA as I was pretty much all ready to go when it was called off.

Me too.
I never touched it, you can't blame me, it went off when I was cleaning it.

I'll look out for you! Got some lights that I'll fit when i get there for the Harley(tractor) and will find some tinsel in the loft when I've walked the dogs!

The bike that is...Miserable weather when I took her in for her 6000 mile service. The cost of the service wasn't bad, but it all added up. brake pads were needed, and I asked them to fit new boots (RP5's) as the OE fit had squared off. Being in a generous mood I had the dealer fit a Scottoiler X as well. I REALLY hate chain maintenance :-) They made up a small bracket and its a really neat install.

Now all I gotta do is fit the Puig screen i got to see if it cuts down the wind noise/buffeting. I had decided not to get one but caved in to temptation :-) Weirdly Puig do a smoked screen and a semi smoked screen but only the lighter variant of the upper wind deflector - go figure.

The new tyres have transformed the handling especially with the amount of roadworks around here, it just feels more planted on the road. I think I am petty lucky to have a good local dealer (Bulldog Triumph) who have always made me feel welcome and don't take the micky on prices.

I was going to try raising the seat but maybe adjustable pegs are next. I need to stretch my legs just a little bit more...

Oh yeah and my 10 year old daughter came pillion with me for the first time the week before. Even when it was raining she thought it was "Amazing - the best thing i have ever done!" I am so glad she doesn't conform to girly stereotypes. She wants to come on the local Toy run with me in a couple of weeks.

See now that's interesting - Bulldog Triumph told me to take the ScottOiler off and tried to blame it for engine problems!  Was it the one in Bramley?

I had no idea there was an electric version  :034:

Whilst I love the idea, I have always hated Scottoilers, since a bad clogging experience of many many years ago, that cost me a chain and sprocket set.

Might have to revisit that one  :169:
