Went for a ride. Summer gloves and heated grips at -5 = sore finger tips.

Nuffin. Starts first time every time, everything works on it, never gets a puncture (since bikeseal was installed), never misses a beat, oil and water levels never need topping up between services, the only thing wearing out is my tyres. I will probably go for Michelin road pilots 5 next year, 4's are terrific but 5's seem the current bees knees. I like boring Honda engineering. 8-)

Just fitted a new set of LED indicators on the rear. Β£8.99 on Amazon with no reviews but I'm a gambling man and it payed off! Luckily the last set were LED so the resistors where already fitted. Just a case of plug and play!

Rebuilt the delivery head for the Loobman on the Kawasaki as it had been caught by a very loose chain and basically torn to bits.. A very dirty/greasy job but it's better than ever now, with extra cable ties to hold it together. The amount of salt about is incredible, massive amounts of lube are definitely required.

Then I moved the K100's tool kit from the area in the rear to under the seat to stop it rattling about so much and noticed a loose screw that should be holding the ABS brain in place.. I ended up tightening nearly every fastener for the rear plastic! I think I need to go over it thoroughly..

Traumatic experience out on the bike today.......I actually encountered two cars on the road.

Had to think back to what I used to do in Britain when that happened!

I got through it!

Gave it a wash down, the amount of road salt that had built up was horrendous. I also did an oil and filter change. I've still got an issue where one heated grip is warmer than the other, I need to check the wiring but it's under the tank and I had just filled it up so it was rather heavy. I'll burn through it and sort it this weekend.

I did a proper job on the headlight of the cg.

I managed to wangle a bog standard 472 bulb in there with minimal adaptation. Going from 35 W to 55 W is fan-f*cking-tastic. I could see on my way home tonight!

Cleaned her up before I've dropped her at the mot station!

Fingers crossed!
