Looks like a good day out Duffy :thumbup:
I must admit, if someone told me they were going to paint their Storm Gold I wouldn't have been too impressed but that one works quite well :D

Yeah it was a good turn out.
I agree but the gold really shimmered in the light at different angles, and suits the Storm quite well. Image

VTR on the seat is pretty common on aftermarket seat covers.

It's still may. So I dropped down to Hastings for a chip supper, also to see if I've fixed the bike.

It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Did you fix it Tony or is it still playing up?

It's playing up less now ...
Brakes are fixed, but traction control still switches off after about 45 minutes of riding, then I have to turn off the ignition and it resets.
I can live with that until after the TT and Devon runs.

That’s a strange fault. So many sensors on new bikes it’s hardly surprising though.
