No one around here to ask.....just cruiser guys down our street.......and they don't even acknowledge my exsistance when I ride past :D
I have joined my local Blood Bikes, great bunch of fellows, we meet once a month and some of us have ride outs, I am not a rider for them yet, have to get either my IAM or ERS, then I will be assessed on one of the Blood Bikes and if I pass that, will be able to ride for them.

We also have a couple of local clubs who meet on a Thursday Night, go to one which meets between 5 & 8, go there for tea, then the other one which is Conwy Club ( Home of the Dragon Rally ) they met between 8 & 10 PM go there on way back

Your profile says Holmfirth, there is me from Bangor and another from Liverpool are you coming down the M56, I could contact the Lad from Liverpool you could perhaps meet up near Runcorn or Stanlow Services, I am meeting him either near A41 or Tesco's at Broughton

Not thought about it as yet. Going through high peak sounds much nicer but I need to have a look at what my choices of route are.

If it's pissing it down before I set off then I won't bother but if it's raining whilst out then fair do.

I think this started out about how we rate our WK650TR's and any problems we have, looks like other owner's, have come across the thread and it seems to have changed tack.

An extra bump stop would have protected the pannier and footpeg.

Just double checked the noise I thought was just ignition related, it is however engine related but cannot be heard when riding, the squeal which sounds like some gears dry, water or oil pump is ear piercing but goes quiet above 3500 and then it is a smooth as silk.
Noise turned out to be Fuel Pump, dealer replaced under warranty
