fairing finally mounted, screen on, it's been a nightmare, glad that's out of the way and we can move on, rearset's are next on the agenda, just need to lose some weight off the fairing mounting bracket's and off the fat bastard rider, i'm on a serious diet, loads of home made soup's, no bread, no alcohol, carrots, celery, no chocolate, crisps, pringles or chips, cut the dairy down to the bare minimum, no use trying to shave gram's off the bike here and there if i'm not fit to ride it, monday to friday, i'm on it, focused and training hard, come the weekend? listen, i'm nearly fifty three, honda ain't going to come knocking and offer me a work's ride............
