That looks the nuts...I know I've said it before but she's a real cracker! Beautiful!

Still waiting for the rearset adjusting plates but should be here tomorrow too.

I used stuff just like that on an FZ600 I was despatching years ago. You can get it from Pentonville Rubber. London streets with that stuff rattled my kidneys around, had to beef it up after a couple of weeks as I was in internal pain. Looks great though...just keep to the suburban greater London roads, don't go near the city or the west end, too painful.

With you Bill, it always catches my eye again before I change threads, then get stuck on Kylie again and before I know it 15 mins has passed.
Although it doesn't seem to stick out so much when you're standing next to it. Still think you should get yellow brake lines.

fastbikefinder I did get the thickest rubber pad I could, 22mm and I'll only be doing rideouts on it, if it's too uncomfortable I'll switch to a proper road seat.

Laughing Your be lucky mate, if Cabbie goes out and buys some old dog of a bike he'll wheel it into his garage and start cleaning it, before you know it he won't want to ride that one either Laughing

I had used 18mm, then bonded a 12mm layer on which sorted it out.

Did I spy Cabbie down near petersfield on Sunday around the loomys cafe area? Was coming from petersfield and thought I glimpsed the bike going the other way on the A272 just before you join the A3?
