Re: Shift Lever Enhancement

Motorcycle boot socks cushioned at the toe for comfort/durability may help.

Well fitting boots which prevent the foot moving around inside may spread the load across the toes/foot.

Re: Shift Lever Enhancement

A chiropodist recommended the use of a gel toe protector to relive the pressure/pain caused by abrasion from footwear. I have some very old Lewis Leathers riding boots with thin uppers and little in the way of a gear change toe pad for up shifts. They are not as comfortable as the more recent and ro...

Re: Bike balance for tyre changes

Using a scissor jack under the sump, allows the front end of the motorcycle to be raised sufficient enough, once the painted section of the fender has been removed to roll out the wheel. I use a similar wooden invention to that of Michael's which fits under the forks with a screwed rod through where...

Re: Dave Day 8th June 2024

It was well worth the effort, four motorcycles and one pillion rode from Teesside to Burton-in-Kendal services on M6 (the last P&T stop) before Barrow-in- Furness. The crowds of people lining the roads into Barrow and bridges over roads were awesome. Everyone with me thoroughly enjoyed their day...

Re: Dave Day 8th June 2024

There is some interest being shown from the North East.

Markus may do it and another with his wife as pillion.

Anyone else.
