Not confidence inspiring when the frontend is over tippy :eh:

Good to hear that those reductions have worked out Lloydie :thumbup:

Thanks Chris. It might be a bit plain, I'm debating silver stickers but I wanted a bit of a 'what is it' look.

Out for a quick blast on The Murvinator, just to get a few bits N bobs from a supermarket.

Filled it up with E5 on the way home...

Killed a few bugs, no where near as many as Mr Hickman & co... :lol: :lol:

I think that is exactly what you have achieved, if you add "Names" to it as in transfers/decal's that bit is removed.

It's whatever you like best is what counts :thumbup:

The Murvinator got another run out today.

Went for a spin to the House of Pun.

A visit to Mr Mons to pick up his few remaining Storm bits to add to Franks stash.

More Cave time today.

Nothing major WaxStorm got an Oil & filter change. Oh & bled the brake M/C as leaver was a bit soft after the brake fettling the other day.

Rothburg had the switch clusters fettled as they were loose.

NueRed got shown some polish.

Might ride one tomorrow... :lol:

Got out for a ride today...

Murvinator to the shops again & another tank of E5 Tescos finest, which allegedly has no Ethanol in it at all...

Than late PM went out again to CrapPhoneWhorehouse as me phone decided it didn't want to turn on. One of the Minions gave it a squeeze & a tickle & it came back to life...Weird :eh:

I got some new tyres from Treens in Exeter, great deal on price .
I also ordered a headstock front paddock stand, turns out the normal front paddock stands are a bit crap for front wheel removal, will refit tomorrow when the paddock stand arrives.

Great to have new tyres with perfect profiles, you just have to bed them in now for the next 100 miles, then you’ll be good to go,
