    In response to Dawsy’s disappointment with his bike mover. I have a St 1050 and a Bandit I ride through the Winter. I tried a number of movers like that one and I to found that the centre stand on the St would not extend fully. It was suggested putting a block of wood under the back wheel etc but that defeated the objective of it be a quick and simple tool for putting the bike away. Eventually bought an Omcrop mover from Italy. Brill bit of kit, takes a matter of seconds. Park bike on side stand, push it underneath, press the pedal to secure it, lift bike onto centre stand, wheel around to your heart’s content.

    Wheeled it out into the light now that all mods are done. Not sure how long will get away with the plate but we will see. Hopefully the police are too busy arresting Boris to care.

    Well the sat nav mount arrived and I must say I am very impressed with both the service and the quality from Evotech.
    Some fitting instructions would have been nice as well as helpful. I'm sure I can work it out when the bike arrives but I do think it's the first after market part I've bought for a bike that doesn't come with fitting instructions.
    I've emailed Evotech to ask for some so I'll wait and see.

    Nice one! I guess you have to grab every chance you can to ride at this time of year in your neck of the woods. We've had a pretty decent January over here in Blighty. Time yet for the white stuff though (hopefully not!). :)

    Plenty of work there getting it clean again! Can't fault your decision to venture out in such conditions though. Top man.
