Would be good if they could replace the tyres while they're at it.

I went to a place on Lodge Causeway last time. TNR I think. I don't think he does tyres though. He's a bit of a character too though that some people get on with and others don't . Fairly straight foreward, no nonsense and quick enough if you get on well with him.

I'm impressed TNR is still going!

I used to use another garage round Fishponds way, just off Manor Road. Can't remember its name now its been some years so not sure if its still there. But they would do me a MOT on the computer if you know what I mean...

Carter Bikes gets my recommendation, but I don't think he does MOT's. He'd be able to advise though.

Phoned carter bikes, recommended TNR. Think that's the thing to do then. Cheers.

I went to TNR after Dave (Carter) recommended him. +1 recommendation for Dave Carter too. He's good for fixing etc.

******** still bl00dy leaking. I fixed that main problem with the split cam chain tensioner but as it warms up its still dribbling oil onto the exhaust around the manifold.
