Dick Turpin and his band of thieving bastards seemed to be all over the place yesterday..... even on a dual carriageway. Nothing better to do, than pick on the motorists..... thieving, useless bastards. Must be time to pay for the policemans ball...... Support your local police.... (by the neck)
Technical and tyres
I invested a little time playing with my suspension settings this weekend. The Bandit on standard settings is not a bad handing bike but, as there is adjustment available, I figured that there was something to be gained from setting it up for me.
I only have preload on the front forks and preload plus rebound damping on the rear to play with. The closest I could get to ideal static sag was to have two lines showing on the front forks and position 5 on the rear shock. (Standard is three lines front and position 4 rear) I then backed off the damping 1/4 turn which made the ride a little less harsh.
Time well spent as it turns out. The front end is much better planted and the bike rolls into corners much better. The suspension also feels smoother over the many imperfections we have to put up with on modern roads. On the basis that the suspension on the Bandit is not top-drawer stuff as fitted to modern sports bikes the improvement is remarkable - far better than I was expecting.
The Bandit continues to prove itself to be a very good package.
Just a quick update ☺ I have my jacket - happy days ---- although very well made and fits really well they mixed my order up and I have neon pink flashes on the pockets instead of all black 😐.... Ho hum..... Decided better to take it as it is or may be another 6 months before I get it back!!
My point here is, there are alot of black riders out there that aren't given a chance to Motogp, WBSK, BSK and TT.
Just remember that most of the Moto3 and some of the Moto2 field are paying for their rides, and about half the MotoGP field does not get paid by their teams. Being a great rider is not good enough - you have to bring family/sponsorship money with you unless someone thinks that you will be a future alien.
Not sure if you are being serious or sarcastic, since I am not a native speaker of the proper English language.
WSS has an even worse gap, since stupid Laguna Seca cannot figure out how to host both series in the same weekend, unlike every other track on the schedule - Dorna should tell them to get lost, just at they did for Moto World Championship (they of course used to run MotoGP there, but not Moto2 and Moto3).
Legal and insurance
Hi guys, I had this Givi topbox modified (by a company that makes and fits side cars), to carry my fairly large chihuahua around with me. Sadly got a new job so close to home the bike just won't get used so having to sell it. Anyone interested, here's the link:

I have (like others) been emailing the 'Silent Manager' about my points being incorrect by -12 points for rounds 16, 17 & 18.
This weekend (round 19) my points were still incorrect to a sum of +49 points this time.
Logging into Fantasy Website this lunchtime, I find they are now correct (hooray) or have I spoken to soon?
Congrats & credit to whoever sorted this pile of c**p out.
I take back all I said (well almost).
