    Took a run over to the East coast today. Was supposed to be with a guy on a Tiger Sport, but it needs a fork seel. So left just a Honda and Aprilia to fly the flag for Japan and Italy.

    Stopped at Peebles on the way over. Lovely wee borders town.

    And then Kelso for lunch. Miss not going to the BMF shows they used to run, got some right bargains there.

    Then eventually made it to Eyemouth.

    Mate then got a phone call from his missus to say washing machine broke, so we went home post haste. Still out all day and 265 miles. My arse was numb as feck after that many miles. :eek::p

    :cool:

    There is/was a nice fish and chip shop/restaurant in Eyemouth. Proper traditional fish and chips, fried in beef dripping, not your shitty oil. YUK!!

    Just saying!:p

    (Sorry, Jez - I'm at it again!!:eek::rolleyes:)

    Ron what psi do you run that rear on and how does it feel with lots of lean? Just asking as mine felt great until you got close to the edge, then I got that sensation of a squared off tyre over white lines, snaking about kind of feeling? not sure if the tyre didn't like lower psi's or just the tyre in general... or me?
    I stupidly didn't try higher pressure before I finished it. I always have my rear about 36psi

    Ron, you need to work on your map reading. Peebles was not en route!

    Currently running 36.5psi, but been trying different pressure. Still not settled. Book says 41, but loads of guys say run lower, but I don't think it helps any. Was thinking of going back up to 39, and try. I ran 41 when at gmu and she went well enough, but took it up cos of the extra weight.

    Made a big difference on the Gixxer, but not really on the Tuono. I know I'm using all the tyre front and back, and it feels planted.

    Like the Michelin RS on the front for grip, but PR5 on the rear for the longevity. Works well IMHO. :cool:

    I know, but changed mind at Moffat and went up the beeftub. Stopped at The Crook Inn and re-routed the sat-nav.
