And you can watch the Rugby today and laugh at the English (I hope).

Also agree on the venue, but somehow "flat", we were there 10 till about 12.30, I enterred the UK lottery in order to get a Rallye.

Thanks Grue

Kev - I remember a convo on Wilddog of late that had a guy asking about preload on the SE. I think mines a bit low, even though I can only really tip toe the bike. Did you ever find a good guide on it?
