Ordered some new mirrors for the Honda as I thought it looked a bit unfinished.
I had fitted the number plate with normal bolts but didn't like the way it looked so got some M5 coach bolts instead,might paint them black so they blend in.
All I've left to do is replace the wheel rims and spokes but I'm going to leave that until after the Rugby bike fest just in case it turns to sh1t.

My neighboor has SS125 but it doesn't look like yours. Very impressive 8-)

I had to bail about 1.30, I'd been out the house since 8.45 and been getting a few comments from OH, "going on another bike thing?"
Sorry about that and yes catch up another time.
Next event for me will be the Daventry show in a few weeks.

Good turn out again and good to see the town centre that busy.
Honda ran well and seemed to attract a fair bit of attention.
OH got a pic of me during the ride in.
