Hello From Rutland
« on: 13 January, 2020, 06:25:36 PM »
Good morning one and all.   Thank you for allowing me to join and I look forward to enjoying the forum and depth of your knowledge.  The wierd user name was an old tank I once had :002:

Kind regards

Tim,  Don't know which are the good hotels but the Fox pub in North Luffenham does really good food.  The Tithe barn in Cottesmore has a good B&B rep - but have not tried it.

Paullie,

Thank you for the welcome.  The bike is just the standard grey 2016.  This time I'm trying to resist doing airbox/ECU and suspension mods.  Probably end up doing those things but will resist until the summer.   :745:

Many of those probably unnecessary on the latest Sport. Even fitting an Arrow seems to make little difference. You may want to spend your money/time on making it more comfy, e.g. screen, seat, heated whatsits, etc.

Ok mate, Ive actually booked into the Best Western on the side of the Water, Normanton Park. Might check the Fox out though for scoff, cheers
