Changed the rear sprocket dropped two teeth and did 120 miles today on twistys upto Middleton then Alston Stanhope Durham home,
you need to twist the throttle a bit and leave in gear a bit longer but much better, we are heading to Harrogate next Sunday so we will see what you he misses thinks,
Some motorways A1 and country roads.
