Possibly the wrong time to start this one.
Bike. Anywhere interesting . Bimble or spirited.  Or just to pop out for an errand ?

Sunday afternoon.
ZRX1200R.
Scottish Borders. Had to do the Beeftub twice.
Spirited at times.

Kids TY80 up and down our road just to see if it still worked.

Two weeks ago. Getting a bit chilly, so may put the bikes away for the winter.

Lord Danoir the first

July I think...... taxed it, MOT'd it, insured it...... rode it to work and ran out of petrol on the way home.

I've tried and tried and tried, and I get absolutely nothing out of road bikes.

Once things settle down, I might send it out to Spain and see if I use it more out there. That's where I do most of my track riding and the roads around where we live are sooooooo nice.

Plenty good roads in the UK. Shame we don't have the Spanish weather.

Rode it to and from the dealers recently, but excluding that, 2600 miles around the French and Swiss Alps in August.

No wonder.
No courtesy bike ?
I'd be jumping up and down wanting a new gearbox.
Hope it gets resolved soon.

You need to sellotape a magnifying glass to the headlight. 😉
