The guys there was great as usual and getting there a fraction early, allowed me to be on my way nice and quickly.
With the fresh new MOT certificate in my bag, I headed on over to see Dean. He's been putting a lot of time and effort into his 1098s, converting it into something a little different. In the flesh, it does look very tidy, but I do prefer the more classical look of mine, but then I am biased. It's a real work in progress and I'm looking forward to seeing where he goes with it.
With beautiful weather and some time on my hands, I spent the next hour or so riding around to a couple of local dealers to book some test rides for next week. Now that it's well established, I'm keen to expand the footprint of this site and would like to get some more information and thoughts on other bikes. I'm going to start with the latest versions of the Fireblade and the Suzuki GSX-R, which should be interesting.
