Default Nice soft day for a spin

Well the cleaning regime is a thing of the past. Had fun for an hour or so today.
TC cut in a couple of times & ABS was working well too. Did have one or 2 slippy moments when I had to remind myself I'm not used to this type of bike yet. Great fun on back roads in 4th 80-100kph

I'd still be on the gixer if it wasn't for the Youghal trip. You better have something good planned this year. I don't want to see any tarmac

Best money you can spend on that is to get the suspension set up properly to suit yourself. Fabulous bike.
