OK so I still had 2mm left on it and it was still legal BUT, it was causing a lot of road noise . I had it replaced on Saturday and today I gave the Vulcan a good run out to scrub it in. The advantage of warmer weather is, the road surfaces are warm, it heats the tyres more thus getting rid of the crap on them quicker so the Vulcan is quieter on the road handles better at low speed and, the bar risers arrived today I'll fit them on Wednesday when my Mrs is available (out with her cronies tomorrow) to hold the bars up while I slot them into place then drop them onto the new risers. I might get on better with it then hopefully. If not it doesn't really matter cos I've got the wee Triumph to play with for 'selfies' --- aint life sweet !
Technical and tyres
You ain't obviously seen my ol' witch cos then you'd realise it's not good to look at her from a distance never mind up close on the rare occasion we're bumping uglies.
So definitely not wanting to watch any re-run of that very short film.
Remember guys , it's a race and there's no points for coming second.
This is it - there are less than 24 hours before the World Superbike weekend at Phillip Island and the start of MCN's 2015 Fantasy Road Race! Be there at the beginning by competing in the "Two Wheels Good" league (PIN #19394), and in addition to bragging rights, maybe you'll win a little somethin' else. Enjoy the season, and see you at the chequered flag!
Legal and insurance
I've been with them for years and have no problems. Their European breakdown cover is excellent also which is included in the premium, which is why they probably don't appear to be the cheapest quote sometimes but I've had reason to use it twice and the call-out was quick. Can't remember how long I've been with them but it must be 10 years at least.
