    Its apparently going to be 'A ok' this sun. :?: anyone out? I'll be tootling (like a bat out of hell) around northern land in an approx. 250 mile radius. No real plans as yet just get on and go.

    Yup......................... B&B ing it :?

    Not back to the bike till Monday morning possibly Sunday night :(
     
  5. Sorry, I would be up for it but I'm in Derbyshire at the mother in laws 60th!!! I'm working on leaving the kids at home and going on the bike.

    Though this may change. I went out yesterday and suddenly heard a loud tapping noice. I realised that it was hail on my helmet as the heavens opened and I went numb as I pootled home in gales and hale!!! I dont want to get stuck in derbyshire having to go all the way back in that.

    Triumph website says both the accessory and the Arrow cans need a tune download. I would think that without the tune up you may loose some power but not damage anything. Assuming the racing cans increase air flow and essentially suck exhaust out faster, it would mean the tune would put more fuel in to get more power.

    don't quote me on that though...could be a load of tosh :)

    Ive heard the same (from other websites), it will not damage anything but you wont get the power benefit until you get the tune.

    Hi Fast Orange, I fave the TOR Can on and ran it for 3 weeks withouiut the remap - all it does is make you run Rich believe it or not, once done the pickup is a bit quicker and the top end just runs on and on :D :lol:

    Hope you all had a great blast out :cool: :cool: :cool:
     
  11. Well, I was at the mother in laws b'day today but to get there meant driving my diesel estate down snake pass and back via matlock bath.

    How depressing, Though I did see a couple of D675s. Were you one of them?

    Wasn't me OOWH :D I went up to Keswick via , A59, lancaster, A6, Quernmore, Kendal, Shap (can't get enough of that road :) ) Saw another 675 up at the bridge, I was begining to think they came out of rocking horses arses!

    I must be getting better as well as I only nearly lost it twice. :) once drifting way too close a curb blasting down Shap :eek: the other caught the front end on a bit of diesel/gravel and felt it slide out :shock:.

    the A683 via Canton was great although bumpy, I felt like Frankie Dettori for a while! I'm begining to think I have my suss. settings wrong. Anyone else having probs/ got any tips? I'm 11 stone and have backed off everything a click to soften up but maybe rebound is set to high?

    Get a "side car" Only................. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Wallis & Gromit Style ;)

    If you fancy it i could take you on a ride over the tops to Matlock Bath, via Glossop, Buxton & Backwell.

    Let me know and we can get a "Ride out" sorted :D
     
  16. So that's the dog sorted but what about the wife and son?!

    I'd be up for that, thanks Jap, you'd have to tone the speed down for me though, as I'll bet I cant keep up with you at your normal pace!
