    I don't... but that's what I did when I was riding the KTM.
    Was that what you were looking for? Halfords had them some time ago, it was around 3.99. I'm not sure if they still have them though, I can't see them on their website.

    Definitely time to slash his tyres whilst walking too closely along the side of his car.

    Yep, that looks perfect. Should make the bleeding job 100% easier. I'll check out Halfords as well, thanks.

    Edit: Halfords sell some, but they're £10+ which seems a bit expensive for a valve and some tube! Actually look identical to the one on eBay for half the price: http://www.halfords.com/motoring/motorcycling/motorcycle-accessories/gtmoto-brake-bleeder

    I've ordered some Rizoma 4Ds. I was going to go for the Elisse, but after reading around the 4Ds, it seems they give a much better view behind and into blind spots.

    Next on the list is a tail tidy (which seem non-existent for the 701s) and a new exhaust...

    That's what working in Canterbury for 17 years does, and to think I haven't been there for a few year I still recognise it all.

    It will never change, dam city council, extortionate council tax and business rates and no improvements in almost a decade

    I doubt you missed me by much, I think I parked up around 1:40pm, left 3:20pm.

    Oi! Full A licence holder, thank you! :D

    They use to have halfords branded one, it was 3.99. But it looks like its discontinued... :(

    Xiaomi Yi2 release date is 12th May. :)

    Edit: The weather is perfect today, sunny, barley any wind and its really warm.

    That sucks. I bought a biketrac tracker on ebay (new, unopened), paid a guy to come fit it. Turns out the unit is from 2009 and is dead :mad:

    The guys from biketrac have been in touch and might be able to help me out - fingers crossed they'll replace the unit...

    I have to say the Groms look awesome - would be a bit small for me though :p

    On another note, is there ever a thing called too much biking?

    I mean I have used pretty much two whole tanks on my SV this week, just going random places after work. Anyone else done this?
    It's weird because the more and more I go out the more I love it - and the more I want to ride. I see an addiction kicking in... :D
