Mentioned it earlier also, a squirt of degreaser and a good rub with aluminium foil seems to do the trick on engine block alloy

Two ten mile trial trips today , good to be back on a big z, not an over powered crazy modern bike but plenty of smiles per mile and even some nice comments from some random stranger at a fuel stop

Admittedly It’s the sort of thing I do do, :) :D not really an issue but on this occasion I was double sure , didnt want a cock up..Woman was nice enough to ring someone and get the new number, she mis heard it Then give me it wrong I repeated it Back to the woman and then checked it phonetically even said PRJ “proper job , often heard down here with the Cornish ... didn’t want to get it wrong .... doesn’t matter now as I am on the road , onwards upwards etc

Hi Damien
very nice bike! Great you covered 100 miles with it! It's only the beginning of a great experience;
Pity you have an A2 seat cover on your A1 bike.... but I'm a rivet counter so don't bother.
Enjoy the bike, let the good times roll !!!!

This arrived today, not too cheap but not as bad as some people were asking... well chuffed but what should I do with it, nuts to putting in the Bag and leaving it under the seat.... suppose it will go in the cupboard and I know it’s there
