what have you done to your bike today??

Post by devon john » Fri Mar 14, 2014 4:07 pm

washed off the ACF50 as i think spring is here.
removed front wheel off the big twin as it keeped going down (cast, tubeless) scotchbritte re fitted tyre all seems OK.
used my new tyre leavers brilliant much easier than the old ones !!
if like me you change your own tyres the Michelin type tyre leavers are worth buying .
these are used by the pro,s .

Used the enfield to work and back for the first time. Even took the scenic route home. Much more satisfying than using the car :)

Bolted on a nav tower and freed the wiring from its strangle hold of the headstock.
