Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

First decent ride out.

Post by Fair Weather Rider on Mon 13 Feb 2017, 3:30 pm

Just got back from a great little ride out, the first decent day, sun shining, if a little windy which is keeping the temperature down to about 8' but roads were dry
Did 72 miles, fingers got a little cold, (No heated grips yet) but the rest of me was toasty.
Bike went really well, since I sorted out the misfiring problem
Noticed quite a few bikes out, lets hope the weather is kind to us for a while.

christ the wind up here in north east is cruel as f*** - biting cold, would not liked to have been out on the bike today. had been dry and bright mind you, which after a month and half of vileness is more than welcome. Blue sky - forgot what it looked like.

I've not got any idea of the "biting cold" you're on about...

I worked in an office for 40 years, and on nice summer days, I used to look out the window and think, wish I was on my bike somewhere and also to make it worse, I could here the bikes going by on the main road. So I made myself a promise that when I retired I would make the best of it, by getting out as much as possible. I feel for you.
