It took me all of about ten minutes to pop the cases on and that was with me taking my sweet time. Hopefully I'll never need them for their intended purpose, but should the worse happen, they could save me a fortune. They look smart too which is a bonus.
The rest of the bike went back together really quickly and I finally had my bike back in road worthy condition.
Writing this up has made me realise that I haven't covered the luggage that I use, so I'll see if I can get something up onto the blog at some point.
Anyway, back to today. The bike felt good on today's little ride out, but then it pretty much should do. I'm taking it easy on the brakes as there are new pads in freshly rebuilt calipers.
The weather forecast looks a tad wet for tomorrow afternoon, but I still may take the bike on the commute. I've hardly ridden it, or anything for that matter, and just want to get out there on two wheels.
