During winter, its all too easy to forget just how quick and responsive bikes can be. Instead of approaching bends, slowing down well in advance to make sure there was grip, I could commit to corners in advance and pick the lines that I wanted to take, look through the corner and just revel in all that being a biker is. Absolute heaven.
In other news, I've taken my 1098s up to see Artur in North London for its bi-annual major service. While it's there I've asked him to look at a few little bit and bobs and he's found a few alarming things as well. A few missed bolts here and there, but also a few frayed wires. Not good, but Artur is one of the few people I trust to work on my bike these days and I had no problem driving the 150miles one way to ensure the bike is looked after by one of the good guys.

We'll be doing a bit of work together, which includes looking at a different filming solution as at the moment he's just doing it on his phone. Hopefully this is the start of something really big for him. Watch this space. Headbehindthebubble and Desmo Clinic together on the same page..what else could you possibly want?
