A slightly unusual
one. I rode to a Mediterranean beach, bought a pair of swimmers (yes, I should have packed some), then pulled the leathers off and spent two hours swimming and laying in the beach.
Then I pulled the leathers over the still-wet stuff and rode some more, damp, but happy.

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

Sorted the steering and refitted the headlight and stop/tail light. I also checked for a parasitic drain on the battery and the only drain was the Reg/Rec. If I'm reading the multimeter right it's either 4 or 40 milliamps (when set on 20m it read 3.8ish, on 200m 38ish). Not massive either way. I checked the charging voltage too and that's fine.

It also got a clean.
