Technical and tyres
Its possible that the fuel lines / pipes could be degrading inside and movement has caused part injector blockage. Its also possible that a block connector may have some corrosion and now a bad contact in one or more circuits with movement. So its a reverse of whats been done.

No sadly, but we are saving everything we have for the FIA European drag racing Finals at Santa Pod in Sept.
Legal and insurance
Had my insurance with Carole Nash for that long, I couldn't remember how long. Got my renewal from them this year for my last bike (Tiger 800) and suddenly they wanted £335! Went on MCN Compare and found loads well under £200. CN had no answer and now I have it with Hastings with my new GSX1250FA for £125! I have no idea why some companies are suddenly hiking up prices for no valid reason. I was with Carole Nash for over 10 years and sang their praises from the roof tops as their breakdown cover served me well in the past too and I was happy to carry on with them, but no more!
Did the Hawes - Ingleton road today, slowly. What a great road - apart from the very steep turn in Hawes onto the road itself, which was scary.
Went to meet a couple of friends for lunch, both in their 70s, both apparently typical grandmas. One was very interested in my bike. And she said, over lunch, 'I used to have a Sunbeam, great heavy 500cc thing it was. Used to ride it from Cambridge to Scotland'. I love that, you'd never guess to look at her that she was roaring about the country on a Sunbeam in her 20s.
