That would do my head in. I have two options in life - symmetrical or bloody mess.


I've lubed my chain today. On the SV I had a Scottoiler and swore by it. The F800 has a centre stand. What a change.
I'm planning on lube every 300 miles and clean and lube every 600 miles (ie alternate weeks). Looks like the centre stand might might the job just as quick as maintaining the Scottoiler.

Buy another jacket to balance it out.

But it would have to be an identical jacket. And then what happens when one jacket is being worn, leaving the other jacket off centre again?

Bridge the two hooks nearest centre with a piece of thick wire ( from an old coat hanger ) - you can then hang jacket in centre of wire.... LOL

Bit of a first world problem Nice bit of kit though, despite the number of pegs.

The relationship of gear is all wrong anyway, vertically from top to bottom it should be helmet, jacket, gloves and then trousers, compared to this the jacket hanging slightly off centre is not such a problem.

you need to get the setup looked at by one of those feng shui experts to see if it is compliant

Okay, so I had this measured at Bedford on Monday. It's 95dB with the baffle in it. So about 100dB without. Plenty loud.

Fitted my new front parking/side light lens. Took me longer to unpack it than it did to fit it.
