Default Re: The All New Megathread

I will hopefully get some more of my pre-initial-service miles in on the 800RE this weekend. Plus get some dry cleaning sorted, and possibly a tie and panama hat purchased, so I'm ready for our anniversary trip in a few weeks. We board the train at HW station at 5am and end up in Dartmouth at lunchtime, before the return later in the day. As we went with posh seats (it is our pearl anniversary after all) the tickets say smart casual is the minimum expected, and I suspect everyone will, like us, dress up and make it a fun experience. Trouble is, I hate shopping for clothes of any kind...
We are the Goon Squad and we're coming to town, BEEP BEEP!

Too hot for riding today so mainly working in the garden, too hot for that too.

Weather looking rubbish for Saturday so any chance to ride the bike will have to wait till Sunday, maybe.

First time I've ever had the front wheel out of the street triple, so I didn't have the required 17mm allen hex socket. The second shop I went to had a kit, so got that. Got the wheel off the bike, got the tyre changed, drove home, then noticed the tyre is an Angel ST instead of the Rosso 4 I asked for.

The tyre supplier sent my fitter the wrong tyre, and he doesn't have a Rosso. And he is going on holiday next week, so I can't get it fitted till next Friday.

Come on RAIN!!!!
