Got my back wheel back in, replaced a bulb and booked my MOT for 9am tomorrow morning.

Enjoyed a rather wet and windy ride into work. The bike was so much fun (not) filtering through traffic on wet road markings and having some nice side gusts to truly make my day

Drilled and tapped my bar ends M8 on the Tmax using the works lathe then fitted my Shad handlebar muffs with M8 stainless countersink screws ready for a cold winter. Coupled with my Tucano termoscud, todays commute was toasty warm. Bring on those chilly winter mornings !

Now I am a bit more used to the Michelin PR4's I am finding them to be roughly on par with the Bridgestones, and having a little more fun with them.

Had my first slow group ride on the big Burg last night with the local MAG. Not a massive distance and only a handful of us but MAG are trying to restart the monthly ride outs so it is a start. Interesting for me as I normally ride solo for the past 10 years and if in a group I am one of the marshals looning down the outside so riding in a group with differing abilities on a bike with no clutch though not ‘fun’ did give me a challenge

As it was sunny and not raining outside today, I decided to get around to fitting the Progressive springs on the rear shocks. Pleasantly surprised how easy it was.
Thought, rather than spend ages getting the Tupperware off I would see if I could avoid it. I happen to have just the right angled 14mm spanner so getting them off just required a persuading stick and lots of 1/8 turns of the nuts and bolts.
Getting the spring compressed just required a bit of rope and my persuading screwdriver.

Testing time next to see if this improves the handling during two up riding

Sunny today so we went out for wee bimble on scootie.
We found a good cafe / farm shop just a couple of miles east of Wolsingham towards the A68. I know it's been there for a while but it's the first time we've called in.
Worth a look if you're in the area.

Took the long 40 mile way home from work this afternoon. Rather pleasant in the subshine, not many other bikes about and only one minor Wooooo horsey moment ( involving leaf mulch plus too much throttle. Proper old tank slapper or is that knee slapper ?)
