Technical and tyres
Thanks for the help guys. Will check the phillips bulbs and do a simple swap. If the headlight itself has a bad reflector then I think the MT-03 headlight fit will be a project I will have to do.
Legal and insurance
I had the same problem with MCE who I have just taken insurance out with. After a week, I still had no documents, so I rang them and got a very helpful lady, who checked my E mail address and I gave her another I use too. Within an hour, I received my documents to both E mail addresses, to be sure, to be sure!!! I asked her about the breakdown policy that comes with the insurance, but she didn't seem too clued up on that, and that's why she didn't get a glowing report from me. Basically, she gave me some wrong info, but I read the paperwork and figured it out for myself.
Welcome to the forum. You're only about 20 miles from me so you'll probably be going up to Rivington Barn to check out the bike meet there. Go early, it gets packed. Or better still, ride up to Slaidburn, about 10 miles north of Clitheroe and park in the car park near the river and enjoy a snack from the cafe next to it and probably meet a few other bikers. You're now ready to learn lots of interesting roads you never knew existed, you lucky man!
Buying and selling
Do not ask me why the high price here, because it goes hand in hand with the quality, You can buy cheap from other hackers, of course the quality of it will never be good, sometimes it a scammer. That's what you need to know to do business, but the choice is your own, I will never force a client in this business.
