You may notice from the picture to the left, that the magazine on the table is a few months old. I'm still subscribed to two, Bike and Performance Bikes, but following the monster commute and lack of post gym coffees, I've been falling behind. As it stands, I've got four months of magazines to catch up on. There was a time when working in London, I was subscribed to four magazines and would finish one in around three days. Must catch up before it gets out of hand.
The FireBlade has now passed 32,000 miles and it needs some attention, most notably at the rear end. The chain is shot and the rear pads need to be changed. I bought some pads at the bike show without checking the actual bike and although I was sold pads that indicated they were for a 954, they weren't. Bit of a pain, but not the end of the world. The new pads should arrive in time for the chain and sprocket job taking place this weekend in time for my CSS Level 2.
Today is Tuesday which means Poole Bike Night. Now working just behind The Quay, I'm able to have a little wander around after work without having to wear heavy, hot bike kit, which is what I did this evening. I didn't stay too long, but managed to get some picks of some great bikes. Just a few of the bikes on display. A V-Max, new R1 in Yamaha America colours, a Buell Lightning, a pristine 1198s and yes, a classic C70 Honda Cub in mint condition. Poole Bike Night isn't all about the cruisers you know.
