As I'm a fairly normal sized man, I'm not blessed with tiny little hands, unlike a certain current president, so its always a squeeze getting my mits into the tiny spaces the bike designers leave for access. Therefore changing the bulbs on any vehicles, car or bike, is a royal pain in the backside.
The 1098s has its annual MOT coming up on Friday and both of my little side lights have blown. Despite them causing less illumination than a match, this would be a fail, so I had to change them. As luck would have it, I had a brand new set in my toolbox which saved me a trip to the store. Result.
With the bikes out I gave them both a wash the noticed that the main headlight had blown on the FireBlade, which really is sods law as I don't have a spare one of those in my toolbox, so its over to the store after all.
