Now that the bike has an MOT etc I have been making use of the bike and visiting friends etc. During this time I have started making notes on things I would like to do to the bike.
The one thing that needs doing sooner rather than later is the front fork seals. The bike handles fine but it is weeping a little from the
Other things such as the paint have taken a step forward.
