    As in another bike? No. It's the next step in my realignment as it were. I hope to keep my Bonneville, which will be my only bike if l hang onto it.....:confused:

    A warm, dry ride on the 1st Jan ‘22. Barmy, balmy weather so couldn’t miss a couple of hours riding some local roads. MBy chance I was spotted by a biking friend (you meet the nicest people on a Honda so it seems today) and greetings were exchanged. Nellie was, understandably, having a day off so tea & bacon buttie was found at home. McD’s looked to be in full swing but the next bend up the road looked more inviting. 546D0041-ACBA-443E-BEEB-127B7D784782.jpeg

    I had a run out on the tiger today. Very warm 13c blue skies and dry roads. A bit of salt dust about, but nothing to get worried about.

    Called in on the riverside at Chester.

    Can’t believe 1st January and the weather is as good as this.

    cut the windshield to a better height for me, now it can be used in the middle of the adjustment, givingbme the option for +-1"

    Used a dremel, it needed a few passes, then sanding using progresively finer grit , finished with polish, I'm happy with the result

    Absolutely nothing at all beyond gazing at it, SORN'D in its plastic bag, and thinking what a beautiful morning, wasted.

    Went to the annual New Years Day run at the Bridgewater cattle market yesterday. Mucky weather but a good turnout. I also met a mate to deliver a wheel. :)

    I changed the oil and filter of my speed triple today. It proved a bit of a challenge as the filter tool I got the other day would not fit. The filter is in an akward place on the speed. I finally resorted to piercing it with a screwdriver to get it off. After that it was plain sailing.

    I then proceeded to replace the rear brake pads with a pair of new Brembo pads... :) A fairly easy job. 20220102_130618.jpg
    After that gave the rear rim a good clean, wheel back on, job done.

    I knew I hadn't put it on tight last time, so I was fairly confident it would come off. Upside of doing things yourself I suppose.

    I did the stabbing with a screwdriver trick a few years ago on a Mk3 Cortina. All it did was was twist the bar steward into a jagged mess, nightmare. :mad:
    Not wishing to teach the egg sucking thing but i always put a smear of grease on the sealing ring. :)

    I attempted to use this, Adie. But it transpired on my speed there's not enough room to actually apply it.
