And brake pads?

Yeah, and new brake pads. Forgot how ****e they are when they're new. Squeeeeeeeeeeze harder (wayhey). Hopefully they'll wear in and the mechanic didn't do something stupid like bleed out all my brake fluid.

Also bought some RST trousers so I can finally stick my budget ones in the wardrobe, and a tail bag ... plus some oil to apparently help clean my downpipe (doubt it!).

yeah, after a few miles they'll bed right in. Think mine are just about bedded in now.
You really did go 'shopping' then, what did you get a tail pack for when you have that tank bag ;)

Well, to transport my new trousers home, obviously! :D Nah, I figured the more storage the better. Should avoid me having to wear a backpack in future.

always best to stack the bike with luggage than the rider

True that. The only thing is, the bungees wore away a bit of paint work where I clipped them on. Will need to find a better connection point.

If you use selotape parcel tape (other brands are available) it's very cheap. AND to make it easier to get off, put some wax polish on the paintwork first but don't rub it off. Then it sticks enough to protect the paintwork but not so well that it's a bugger to get off and/or takes your stickers off.
