Well for about £20 in parts (headlight bulb and new handlebars after I stole them for a different bike) and the spare battery for my KTM, it's got an MOT, all ready apart from gear for a tiny bike weekend tour with the Mrs next weekend :D

Blimey!!!.... You soon got that sorted👍👍👍👍👍
Didn't do a lot to it, didn't even change the chain just lubed it a chucked it in for an MOT to see what was wrong :lol:

Spending a good couple of days in the garage at the moment getting the Innova up together. Just wired in a spotlight and it definitely needed a change of air filter 😂

Fitted a front rack off a bicycle and then added a spotlight.... my first attempt at the wiring was a bit ‘suspect’ as I switched it on and the horn came on too 😂😂😂
Took it for 120 mile spin to check it all worked well and it was comfy enough for that distance so figure next year 130/150 miles a day will be plenty

My C90 is ok for about 250miles in a day, anything much over that is a bit of a mission though. My big tourer, a CRF250 Rally, is ok up to around 400 miles, but 150 to 200 on either is always much more civilised, with time to enjoy the scenery, taste the coffee and eat the cake :D
Of to the Dolomites on the Rally a week on Friday for a bit of R&R for a fortnight, but it's a blooming long way from South Devon........

Just been out on the wee bike for a bit of a giggle, I've definitely missed back road cruising at 40.
