Thanks for all of the kind comments folks (thumbs)
New rubber fitted :woohoo:
MOT tomorrow morning :whistle:
Then, all things being equal I'll be ready to burn through a couple of tank fulls of unleaded over the weekend, to get a feel for how the old girl rolls ;)

Just spent some quality time with the old girl, a little over 60 miles, making sure nowt was going to fall off or sieze up on me :whistle: . . . . . . . and then making the grin on my mush grow reet large (thumbs)

This old girl rocks. Now to plan a route for tomorrow to burn off some more un-leaded :)

Now that you mention it . . . . . . I'd completly forgotten about his red beasty . . . . . but having just checked through my photo's from that weekend, his was a 800Fi version.

I had one of them a few years back - V plated with just 16k miles on it from the first owner . . . . . . but it just wasn't for me.
