    Great ride in the Welsh countryside. Visited Llangollen and the ponderosa cafe.

    Finally got round to buying one of the rad guards that @mk3golfcab pointed out. Perfect time to fit one while the front wheel is out.

    Polished he scratches out of my rear seat cover, after not securing it properly and it flying off on a slip road.

    Got these today for a bit of spannering over the weekend. The danger of having a proper service manual is when you realise you need some new tools to do something properly :oops:

    Well Its been an expensive weekend. Went to prep my bike Friday evening to ride to Barmouth via Bala, only to find someone has put a knife in my back tyre.

    No idea as to why, I can only guess some jealous sod has done it. So I went and bought some Pirelli corsa rosso 2 tyres. Fitted £300. Gutted

    Thanks pal. I wouldn't mind but I've not upset anyone and I'm always mindful of my neighbours. It may have happened when I was out and parked up.

    I'm unsure buddy. Like I've said I haven't upset anyone and always mindful of my neighbours. Could of been when I parked it up by the river. Luckily I did get my wheels done the following morning and still made it to Barmouth. Just gutted as I only bought the Avons in February.

    As @PauloHRC said that is disgusting behaviour, have to admit I would be tempted to tell Plod about it. Sadly these days it could simply be jealousy of a nice bike, or someone you did a perfectly good overtake on that led to it.
