    I've never got my knee down.

    Then again I don't own any leathers so I've never tried.

    Adjusted the throttle cable when I got home from work as there seemed to be about an inch of slack in it. The manual says between 1-4mm is acceptable but this was nuts.

    This is the second time I’ve had to tweak it since picking up the bike which I’m not sure if that’s excessive or not (circa 3000 miles) and I’m already running out of space at the bar end adjuster :confused:

    I’m pretty laid back but it was making low speed cornering a pain because of the dead zone. Oh and my chain lube ran out, so I’ll need to get some more.

    Starting to get it ready for Cartagena in May, but before that a short trip to Reps in Caldicot for the Woolich race tools update, new Autoblipper strategy and Warm up feature.

    got it home and it was filthy, so gave it a proper clean.

    You can get strap on sliders that go over your jeans/textiles, I saw one of the guys wearing them on one of the Rideout's.

    Thanks for that, noted and appreciated.
    I'll look into getting a smaller front sprocket and giving it a try as that's a nice simple job.

    Hahaha :D

    I have sliders on my one piece, but if I ever get over far enough I hold my knee in.
    Can't be scraping them and getting them all scruffy looking, :p

    Thanks guys, was debating the stickers and have removed them now, looks better without.

    One of the 5 passes I rode through today was a little bit too high for this time of year.
