    So, I'll start...

    Today I booked my ZX10R in for full pro suspension set up on the 21st :D

    Today just rode it to work. Lately put a new exhaust and rear shocks/springs on the ER5 plus some new levers.

    The ZX6R got an M4 exhaust so that it didn't feel left out.

    Cleaned and lubed the chain, tightened the left mirror cos the wind forces it down all the time.

    Rode it 37.5 miles in the rain to work, rode it back in the rain again, put it in the garage with a final thought of 'my god that's filthy' :p

    Next time it gets taken out the garage will be for a damn good clean, and it really really needs it :)

    Rode the 25 miles to work this morning... but it's not really my bike, my bike is poorly, so I'm on a CBF600 as a hire bike... Don't like it :(

    I looked at it and dusted some MDF dust away from the chrome that had settled there after I made a sub box a few weekends ago.
    I have covered 0 miles on my new back tyre in a month. This is not good.

    Rode to and from work. Got home and found a screw had come off some fairing bar so reattached. Want a new bike again.
    Oh and I pumped up the tyres.

    I put some new levers on it. Replaced the ugly chrome ones with some sexy black ones (just Chinese cheepo ones but they fit well and work well. Once these are done I'll but some Pazzo's).
