Would you believe the bike was ready for me on Monday but they noticed a leaking fork seal so I got that sorted and picked it up on Tuesday - Op Storm NI sure was a tough tour of duty!!
I've gotta ask James. Was anything mentioned about the little rattle when you returned the loaner?

Pete, you were spot on with your diagnosis: cam chain and perfectly normal. :D

It would have been one of your five a day if they'd put a diet coke with it
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Bike's ready, leave booked, just gotta throw clothes in rucksack, bike in van, roll out Thursday.

Only fly in the ointment is I damaged tendons in right calf playing squash Friday before last (won anyway, though) , tried to play again yesterday, still swollen and painful (lost every set, couldn't run..) so I think I'll have problems riding with toes on pegs.

Long time no see chaps, what's been happening?

I haven't ridden the bike on road or track since Aug 17 and the op storm Scotland, just haven't had time with the kids and work.

Finally got round to tidying the garage yesterday, got me thinking I should re-insure, tax and MOT the bike again.

Sadly it won't be in time for this trip, but I hope you all have a fantastic time, and I hope to make it next year.

You need to get your act sorted Chris. You'll be missed, before you know it you'll be old and boring :D
