Man it's gone from swarm of the flies to no flies at all! I just did about 100 miles at warp 9 and my bike has like 5 flies on it. The cool weather must have killed them off

In other news, my bike feels incredible just now with those new tyres! Such a pleasure to take corners

Same here Darren. Riding back from Yorkshire last Friday I had to keep stopping to clear the bugsplats from my visor. Rode into town today and not a single splat!

riding a naked has definitely slowed me down. yesterday when looking down at the clocks most of the time the speed was 60mph and below. where before it was upwards by a fair old whack. the larger (two teeth) rear sprocket along with the wind blast has me holding on for dear life at times. its fun

Slower?! We'll need to get you back out for a run with me, show you how it's done

I'm tempted to get a bigger rear sprocket for more fun but it'll probably just cut my tank range down even lower

Pretty sure the words. Naked and clocks shouldn't be in the same paragraph when speed reading.
