My bike has left the factory :shock:
Exciting and annoying that the wait isn’t over in equal measures!, what have you got coming? :D .
R1250gsa, was told it would be around August and it's here in the next 10 days or so.

Not bad.
Nice, bet you can’t wait!.

Be interesting to see if it comes with Brembos or Hayes.

I wonder where BMW got the idea of gold rims from... :roll:

In preparation for a conference I need to attend I popped round to J&S and bought a new tank bag. Between that and the top box I reckon I'm sorted for luggage capacity.

It does come with Hayes at front and brembo rear.
Nowt wrong with brembos so I can only assume cost cutting measures (imagine that).

Ive been mostly consumed in an orgy of tool porn.. ordered a 1/2" socket/spanner set. new 40-200 torque wrench and breaker bar.
I already have a 3/8" but.. its missing too many bits over the years, but handily still has the 8mm. which the new set is missing. (and I need)
And my old torque wrench which I haven't used for (too many) years.. is making a horrible grinding noise. so its been binned.

out with the old....
I go round in circles.
