First topic message reminder :

Just spent a fairly cold couple of hours in the garage doing final jobs & checks. Replaced the fuel filter, Had a look at the air filter but decided to leave it as i cleaned & reoiled it middle of summer last year so it has only seen around 1000 miles at the most. Wax polished as much of the frame as i could get to with the tank off. Refit the battery which has been keeping warm in the house all winter & removed the screen & dash trims to replace another speedo bulb which has gone. All that is left to do oil & filter to change after the first ride out & change the brake fluid. Anyway bring on some dry slightly warmer weather as i am desperate to ride as i am sure all you guys are.

mevsyd are you still thinking of getting out tomorrow? I have just finished putting the bike back together & not ridden it yet. I am thinking of not going too far until i know i tightened everything up so nothing will fall off or leak. Was thinking of going to otley cafe for breakfast then ride out to settle & maybe to devils bridge. Let me know if u fancy meeting up. Probably wait till the sun has melted the frost & set of at 10ish.

Good idea Suzie.... we could try and go the last weekend in April again - same as last year - or I'm happy to venture out either before or after as long as the snow isn't about. Maybe I can meet up with a few of the more Northern Cats and we can come down en mass? I'll be there though, even if it's only the two of us.... it only seems right :down:

So just give me a shout and I'll get organised - can always try and get a few LMs on the way there/back too if we wait til April :bounce:

And I promise when the weather gets a bit warmer I'll take a jaunt down to catch up with MevsyD and Yamahamad clappy

Well i did get out for a bloody cold 60 mile ride. Headed out to skipton & over the moors through bolton abbey. Had to stop because i could not cope with the cold in my fingers. Stopped at blubberhouses moor to defrost my gloves.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Headed off again after a smoke & 5 minute finger wiggle (good job i am not a girl or could sound rude) After blubberhouses there is a long & fairly steep winding descent where i see a sign saying flood. Not too much of a problem apart from it is sheet ice for a fairly long distance & on a bend at 60 ish mph. I managed to not let my brain apply the brakes & luckily got through it upright. Stopped at otley cafe for breakfast but the scooter boys (old men) had just arrived before me around 20 or so & a full breakfast would have been 30 mins so just had a brew. Got home & realised another couple of hours cleaning were required.

Spent a cold couple of hours hosing, washing & leathering & left her in the late afternoon sun to dry.

Its a shame we did not meet up mevs. Maybe next weekend.

Argh - well done on not binning it on the sheet ice affraid And she's looking spotless again after all you're cleaning - if you're ever short of something to do I could at least provide a nice bucket of warm water if you fancied washing my bikes heheheeh yeah I know... f*ck off eh? Well it was worth a try....!

Glad you had a good time and glad you defrosted your gloves... without melting them! whistle
