    Thank you Andy & Craig. The back was fine even after sleeping on the floor for 4 nights. The ride was great and the tank back did a blinding job. I've posted pics at the end of the meet posting

    I'm just down Scott Hall Rd from there.

    Jean and me honeymooned in Mull and only I had the gel seat at the time. Every time we stopped in the 350+ journey she wanted to swap seats. It really does make a difference. I wouldn't have done south of France without it. 960 miles in one go - grim :(

    Damn Good mate paid £300 fitted for my 016's best buy before the Tour.

    Seat is well up on the list though if your doing miles followed by Heated Grips £65 from Hein Geirick.

    Best two things I have added to Bike. We should try for a meet on Sunday at Squires Milk Bar Sure Stue and Chicken would be up for it :D

    got them in the workshop now ready to b fitted next fri.
    the heated grips seem a gud idea cos just cant keep the fingers warm in winter.
    even with the H. Gericke Pathon gloves and thermal gloves underneath, still cold!

    Yeah i'm up for Sunday at Squires, pass it round. 07870 650 105 is my no if needed.
     
  17. I'll be there......er where is squires? I'm up early tomorrow for 6k service at west yorks trumpets. hope the rain holds off
