My bikes ready for the trip now, picking it up tomorrow. £888  jaw drop1z

fuck me mike...it must av been falling to fuckin bits man.

It included the Pirelli Angel GT II s @ £231, full service inc valves (though they were ok), rear suspension linkage bearings,sleeves & seals were knackered, new bolts helicoiled on rear caliper, plugs, filters, bulb, & labour @ £295 and the VAT was £150!
Chain & sprockets were checked and didn't need replacement.

Went up to the Classic Bike meet at Wray nr Lancaster last night, bike was running great. Didn't like the last bit of the ride home in the dark though, disadvantage of only having 1 eye is poor night vision.
Was wondering whether I should buy a new Arai visor because it was a fair bit clearer with it flipped up. Anybody know a bike clothing shop en-route to Plymouth that might fit one for me?

Today I've rung Adrian Flux and there's no charge for bike insurance, they're sending a certificate confirming my fully comp uk cover will apply whilst in France & Spain.
I organised breakdown recovery with the AA for £92 and travel insurance silver standard for medical etc for £22, which seemed ok to me.

I was going to stop at my sister's on the way down Monday night, but when I mentioned this to Vinny he kindly invited me to stay at his place and we'll ride down to Plymouth together on Tuesday.
I can always see my sister on the way back if I want.

Noo that's whit's called preparation, nice one E.   happy119   happy88

i would take weather predictions with a pinch of salt it can change with the click of a finger.....

i took 10 mins out last night to clean my lid up and noticed it had a mark on the visor..well a scratch right on my line of vision, so i decided to get the polishing glaze out and have a do at buffing it out...ended up wishing i hadnt made that decission now.. fart1x fart1x
there must be some kind of coating on  the outside as i couldnt see fuck all through it when done...59 quid for a new shoei visor..left me feeling  like i got bum fucked with a cactus.. sex011 sex011

Dunno Roy mate....they're pretty accurate these days.
At worst they give you the chance to be properly geared up for it.
GoreTex..etc...lots.

Ali... take a few sea sickness tabs, and try to sleep through it.
Common sense stuff....lots of water.....eat very little, but often.
Take a few sachets of rehydrate to mix with water.
That way, if the worst DOES happen, when the rocking stops, you'll feel heaps better, much quicker.
You won't end up with that shitty 'washed out' feeling.

Fingers crossed everything will be calm and hunky-dory  angel2 angel2 angel2

T cheers for the advise, I'm well acquainted with so called preventative measures, green apples, one ear plug, nae coffee etc etc.

The only one that works for me is staying on terra firma.   happy119
