Oh we're wrong in so many ways you wouldn't understand, Darren.

Scary part about today is my cousin is now determined to get me out on track on this crazy bonkers tuned R1 that he's just acquired, as he said he wants to see me s*** a brick as the front lifts in 5th under the bridge at Knockhill just when your mind is saying its time to hit the brakes. It'll all end in tears, either laughter or pain and more than likely both.

Really? I didn't know that.

Probably wouldn't have bothered anyway. Since they sent me out on a bike with no brakes I haven't been in so much.

Tinkering for today was cleaning the curvy.

I had to wait in for a phone call (I know, how quaint). So with nothing better to do, I washed the bike, clay barred the paint, washed the bike again, polished the paint, chrome and bare alloy bits, then waxed it all.

Popped the baffle in the Daytona for my Observed Ride.
PCut a gamy bit of loom out of the zx6r's loom and fitted a DTRL to give the charging system an easier time .
