Great write up Captain. Sounds like quite a day with the weather conspiring against you.

Re: Bike balance for tyre changes

I left mine resting with the front axle on an axle stand with both wheels off.

I found I needed to jack up the bike slightly to get the front wheel out, so left the jack in place to increase stability.

Re: Main Stand

Fortunately for me, the Powder Coater didn't charge as I recently put a big job his way for my office.

Main Stand

Got my main stand back from the Powder coasters.

In an attempt to stop the road rash, I have added some plastic conduit to the cross bar. I’ve also stuck some rubber to the base of the stand to hopefully help there too.

Maybe not a "good" chance. Exeter currently shows 19% chance of rain at 1pm on the 31st...

Re: Welsh Speeding Ticket!

Thanks David. I hope you’re right - I’m waiting to hear if they offer a speed awareness course. My last fine was 20 years ago, so I was well overdue another!

Main Stand Refresh

The Powder Coater owes me a favour, and my main stand is looking a bit tatty after 12 years and 20,000 miles. So today was the day to use up all my swear words for May (!), and remove the f*@€#ng thing! Brute force and ignorance won when removing the springs, but I need something a bit more accurate...

Welsh Speeding Ticket!

Coming home on the M4, it was restricted to 50mph for road works (which were not obviously in progress!!).

Average cameras clocked me at 58mph :twisted:

Re: Hello from the UK

Welcome Nick. You're in good company. Dave Clough (Davecly) also has a 2016 Iconic, which has just ticked over 40,000 miles.
