Badly chipped, too much close riding at speed  :007:  :164: plus, they were off the bike for a service, new pistons and springs, I have a mate who does sand blasting so I though why not..  :001:

The chipping was pretty bad, getting on for 50%, I should have taken a photo, last trip to Scotland finished them off.. worth it though, it  was an ace trip..  :020:

 :031: windy

Nowt worse than following another bike for getting stone chips eh, one of my chums had a radiator holed following his mate. Brand new BMW S1000RR, that finished him with that bike, dealer had it more than he did, without the busted rad.

Getting there, slowly but surely..

Had some other stuff to do today but got the forks in and the front wheel, I'll leave the mudguard until the extender arrives..

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Quite common (myself included) to glue the Fender extender on either with bathroom sealant (me) or a two part epoxy
much neater I think  :002:
