Not so far. I'll try his number again tomorrow. They might be closed between Christmas and New Year. Hopefully, this can be sorted sooner rather than later.

On the 3rd we're off to the South Island for 10 days. This morning I am off to pick up the R80G/S PD I've foolishly committed to buying yesterday.

a fool in love...


ANyway I am no giant hurry... I've got the funds sort of on standby, so I can jump whenever, pretty much. A race in a month, and I am not counting on them being here by then. So if just let that go, than I can wait around a bit.

I just bought BMW Sport front springs from the last of the Eurotech stocks, and will throw them in to see if it can sort some of the low speed harshness for hte time being. I'm almost too lazy to do it because I'll have to donk about with preload...
Trying to put the trelleborgs on the 450, today busy busy busy

I reckon I got it for a good price, so it shouldn't be too hard to flick it on, if I have to. It will be interesting how it compares to the R80GS Basic. I'll get to ride it home in the rain today.

R80 G/S vs basic would be a good comparison. Worth a writeup.

Riding, fixing, tinkering, and modifing a R100GS is usually not a "young" man's passion...just saying

Call out all ye young at heart, thus we know to well whoeth thy by age. I be 2 score and 14 (54)

(Sorry, get a few pints in me and I get (as my wife says) a little Shakespearean on your ass. )
