Take my money!!!!
I think having this in the stable might be just the thing to get my lady and daughter on to bikes.
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.

Today I made a swinging arm fender-extender for the Honda Innova ANF. There's a quarter of an inch space near rear tyre;

Should help keep all the road splatter off/away from the rear end area - cheap n' cheerful.

As I'm in quarantine and can't get out and about thought I'd take a photo of my pride n' joy in the rear garden today;

Launched on-line yesterday in Japan - a pretty little thing, and quite useful too....pity if it doesn't come to the UK. Link here:

Spent the morning working on the XR125L

I’ve taken a bit off the end of the bars to narrow them down slightly and the handguards off to lighten the look of the front end.
Seat cover sorted with a cheap coolcovers copy and just waiting on the chain guide rubber then new chain on and ready for the summer, or next summer maybe 😂

I purchased the average priced bespoke fitted Takegawa cool cover for my msx..... before I realised I could get a very similar one for about a fifth off the price...so I bought that one for my big bike.

Nice!
The cool covers one is definitely fitted better but the cheap one was only £4.83!!! It’ll do for a couple of seasons I’m sure.
Just playing about with luggage options for when we can actually use them again
